Default Spray in bedliner paint job

I have a 1995 Toyota Tacoma and thinking about a bedliner paint job for the entire truck.
Any recommendations? Do it yourself? Pros and cons.

I had my jeep done in Linex. No fading and I'm constantly being stopped and asked about it. That said there is a significant difference in cost and quality from high end and do it yourself.

LineX is one of the best. They offer a UV protectant that will keep it from fading.
However...It will be expensive to do a truck. A friend of mine paid $4000.00 to have a Jeep done.

There are several different brands out there for the DIYer if you want to save some money. Just know that prep is the key. If you don't sand it down good, it will peel.

That was cheap. Mine was more than that.

I've done several bumpers, brushguards and fender flares with this. Great results. It's not rubberized like the normal bedliner. It's almost like a super think textured paint. It has a satin finish and does not fade or collect dirt.

Surface prep is key. Cover yourself completely if you spray it.....you'll have to wear it off if you get it on your skin.

$200 max and you are done for that truck .....thats 4 coats!

As others have said, no way in hell would I ever do that myself. I did the bed of my truck myself and fully prepped at the body shop I worked at and it started fading about after a year and now it looks like complete crap about 5 years later

Thanks everyone for your thoughts. If I do go that route I will certainly have a pro do it.
I am also considering a camo wrap. My graphics guy is going to look at it and let me know.

If this is for a ranch truck you don't want a wrap. I was looking to do the very same thing and the local wrap guys told me the wrap is delicate. Either do nothing and paint after a couple years of texas pinstriping or get a cheap paint job now.

Bedliner is going to kill the resale of the vehicle.

if you were to go DIY ,I would reccommend Raptor Liner also, my son used it as an undercoating, he's attending college at TAMUCC and wanted some protection from the elements there. Its been going on a year and when he cleans his wheel wells out with pressure washer they look like the day he put it on.

I did exterior on 90 F350 7.3 IDI 4x4 and had many turn away due to it being all bed liner when I was selling it. Personally, I will never do a full body bed liner again. The ones posted above look great and I would buy them but many would not.
I used DIY MonstaLiner on my wife's Nissan, inside the bed and side tool boxes. So far it has held up very good. We haul tons of furniture for our antique store and had the factory paint al scratched up. Prep is the secret and I used a spray gun this time, I will never go back to a roller.

I did my Nissan 4x4 ranch truck with tan bed liner spray cans. I ordered a case off Home depot and used all 6 cans on the truck, taped off everything and all that. Turned out good and only cost around $70 for everything.

I did my hunting truck myself and I think it turned out great. And being tinted I donít think it will fad like the black will. If it does Iíll just spray it again. Itís not bad to do either

I used custom coat with a spray gun. You can buy a kit off of eBay with everything you need.

How much prep was involved?

It certainly looks great. What brand of liner did you use?

It took me longer to tape everything off. The paint goes on well. I didn't primer it, it was red before. I'll post a pic later on.

Itís called Custom Coat and comes in a kit with a spray gun. Hardest part is taping everything off.

I had my 2500HD done over 6 years ago and no fading yet. Had it personally done, so can't remember which product they used. I doubt the OP is worried about resell value with a '95 model.

I spent about a day and half prepping and pulling off parts before I started rolling the monstaliner. It took a about 6 hrs to tape and roll two coats.

Iíve never seen a Line X liner more than 5 years old thatís in the sun every day not be faded.

I wouldnít line a vehicle I owned for several reasons. Between the fading issue, added weight and if not properly applied it will peel up as well.

People always refer to the "added weight". How many pounds of added weight do you think the paint job adds? You would be surprised it is less than adding another adult human. It's not even noticeable. The guy Krivo used is who I would recommend as I recommended Krivo to him. If you get it done right it won't peel or fade and it doesn't add much weight to the vehicle.

They offer with or without uv protection. It makes a difference.
