The Story of the Roll on Bed Liner

A roll on bed liner appeared like one way to prevent the decline of our previous pickup. Old Mitsubishi pickups, in this case a 1980 Plymouth Arrow, are noted for getting rusty as the years pass. This truck looked like a fantastic candidate for a do it yourself bed liner. You certainly could not justify an expert liner with this truck. This is how it went. The first order was to do some basic repairs to stop the rust. Before beginning, we did a thorough cleaning. Now washing is not enough. We used acetone to eliminate any wax and grease. Wax and grease are bad foundations for paint. Following the washing came some heavy sanding to eliminate a lot of the rust.

Roll on Bed Liners - Techniques for Success

After the sanding, we used some chemical rust converter to prevent additional issues. We spray some primer on any bare spots, anything to help that paint stick. At that point, we have got solid surfaces to paint over. We have got a clean surface and we have got a very nicely sanded finish. You may even call the end scraped, not simply sanded. Now came the fun, Placing on the paint is about as simple as could be. See, this is truly thick paint with a great deal of texture. That means it covers all sorts of defects perfectly. Another thing that disappears is any hint of brush marks or roller marks. Instantly an old truck bed looks like it got a fresh lease on life. As it is written, that job is over two years old. The paint has held on perfect. It is a bit scratched and scarred, but it has been sorely tested. The damage is minor and hardly noticeable from a few feet away. Thing is, all of the damage is easily repaired anyway. The truck we drive still looks presentable, partially because the bed liner has helped us prevent further corrosion of the truck bed. A roll on bed liner is a quick, cheap way to create an older truck seems far better. Preparation of the painted surface is the key to success. That takes some time, but it is not all that difficult.
