Thumbs up Raptor Bedliner DIY Kit

A month ago I brought up the topic of Line-X wanting $1000.00 to spray the interior in my D90. They claimed they could paint four trucks in the time they could shot a completely bare-bone tub (they just didnt want the job). They sprayed my work truck, bed and rails for $450.00. In the mean time I had been looking for a cheaper route for my D90.

A customer of mine that rebuilds military equipment for the government recommended "Raptor Bedliner." He showed me where they were using it in all applications. (Beds, Lower Kickplates, Undercoating ect.) So I went for it.

The kit cost me $120.00 from Sherwin Williams Automotive Paint. This included: spray gun, 4 liters of black base and the hardener. Enough material to do 125 Sq/ft. You can get this product in tintable!

I sprayed my tub last night and woke up to a nicer bedliner then the Line-X on my work truck. I have been completely taken back by the cost savings! It looks great! I cannot comment yet on the durability, but I will keep you posted.

The thickness is up to the person spraying it. The texture is regulated on your preset PSI (40-70 psi recommended, higher PSI thinner lighter the texture). I went with 55 PSI, anticipating changing it, but never did. You can coat and recoat as many times as you want, making the texture thicker.

Right now, I am completely satisfied. I will post pics on my D90 right away. What a savings!!!
The links below are not mine. There are bunch of them on YouTube.



Not my either!

Glad to see how well this worked out since I have 2 bottles and the hardener of Raptor left after rolling the battery compartment of a motor home.
It was so so, but spraying seems to make all the difference.

Spray is the only way to go.

Very nice, Matt! Way to go! Are you going to apply this in the footwell areas too?

Thanks for the nice complements. I am on the fence on the footwells. It would look really nice but I have read good and bad threads on the subject. The fact is I have spent a lot of money on my interior navigation, Diamond XS leather front and rear. I really thought about putting carpet up front only. The odds that this truck will ever see mud or rain is not real good.

Furthermore, I plan on building another truck before its all over with...
