Spray on liner for interior

For the last month or so my 90 has been just sitting in my barn because of the cv joint so while I was waiting on it to come in I started to clean up the truck on the inside. It was pretty trashed out from the past owner so all the carpet had to go. Right now I'm wondering whether or not to replace with carpet do some sort of spray liner. Would the spray liner be worth the money, I talked with Charles at RA and he said it usually costs about $800-$900 but will probably be less because I have taken out the carpet and jump seats already. Would any of these things affect the resale value. The inside is in great shape but I'm gonna be pretty hard on it when I go hunting,fishing, and camping so that's where liner would help I think. I'm gonna try to put a poll on this so tell me guys what you think.

I have thought about that process before, but decided to waxoil (interior type) instead. Floors and such I maintain, clean and wax as well. I guess I didn't want to deter from original, and/or maybe end up in the long run with a lot of hard goop in the vehicle..?

The first thing I did to my Defender back in '97 was to strip everything out and Rhino Line the whole interior. I would recommend it to any Soft top vehicle. I just shot my F250 bed with Stead Fast Full Metal Jacket and I like the finish they were able to get with it better than the Rhino Lining (no drips)

I removed all the dashboard and Dynomatted all the floor and firewall (bulkhead) for noise and heat attenuation then went for en Exmoor liner (3/4 " rubber based material) that can be hosed down for cleaning that is molded for your truck.

Dynomat Extreme kind of waterproofs the floor if done properly.

Alot quieter (as much as what this means with a 200 Tdi) and easy to maintain.

I just did the Rhino liner. I like the texture of Rhino better. If I were throwing bricks or stone blocks in the back lick a pickup I would have leaned toward the line-x

The guys who did mine did an incredible amount of prep work. I took the roll cage and everything out but the steering wheel. They took out the seatbox, coated the inside and and prepped/filled some rust in the bulkhead area. I think the prepwork is key for either product. I would visit both dealers and check out their work.

Mine has a rough textured truck bed stuff sprayed in it and I hate it. It catches every last bit of dirt and is like trying to clean out coarse sand paper.

I've gone so far as to start scraping it out, POR15 coating the inside, and lining everything with factory rubber mats.

pat, that sounds pretty nice but had to of cost a fortune with all that dynomating. where did you get that exmoor liner i've never heard of that. if you don't mind pm me if you remember how much that cost.

andrew what kind of liner did you get? i've never really heard of that happening.

matt, i don't see me selling it anytime soon i plan on doing a diesel swap and making all sorts of stuff to make it last as long as i can but my main concern is this the most practical thing to do with a hard top, i think for the abuse i'll be throwin at it with hunting and fishing trips it would be. i bet whatever i do will be black i don't think matching the willow green would look to good as it might with other colors.

I didn't put it in, but it's literally like super coarse sand paper. We live on a dirt road and I haven't had the top on for a month, and it looks like shit. If you could get the smoother type of bed liner sprayed on, I think it would be great, but I'm not going that route.

if you have a sw i can see replacing it to original. so, i would say replace carpets. in my case i am coverting my 97 sw to st so i am in favor of line-x. good luck in what ever direction you chose.

Any of you guys that have lined your D90 (especially the tub) could you post some pictures? It doesn't matter whether its Line-X or otherwise. I'd just like to get a visual before I make a decision. Thanks.

I would say to add the interior rubber package of the Soft top...........I love mine.....

However I do have some rust forming under the driver and passenger floor mats.....I know I will have to address that at some point.......

I have a SW with factory original carpet and LR rubber mats in front and back. I hunt and fish out of mine and have had good luck with it. It also stays pretty dry inside in the rain so rust hasn't been a problem yet.

When I do get water under the mats I take them out until they dry out.

Line-X kicks butt. I sprayed my sliders withit. Looked great, non slip and tough as the steel it was sprayed on!

You can see the Exmoor liner HERE. Select Matting from the left column under 90/110/130. It's touted not only as matting but soundproofing too.

I've seen a lot of butchery done to vehicles that was rationalized by that thinking.

I look at spray-on bedliner as I would a tattoo - seems like a good idea at the time.

The problem with an Exmoor one piece job is WHEN water gets under it it's a pain to dry out. When not if.

1. Either do a liner and pay for it.

2. Or, brush on a liner-type product over all the metal and then use rubber mats. This will prevent rust developing and allow you to easily dry out. Oh, and it's much cheaper too.

I plan on doing mine later this year. Member of our club owns SuperLiner and is going to do it for me. He can colormatch and even do graphics. He's offered to do a Land Rover logo in the bed. I was thinking of having him do the cappings too. I haven't decided on that yet. I'll definitely post pics once it's done.

Exmoor ...

I am still going for the Exmoor but I will defently go for the Rhino lining for the battery compartment. Otherwise the Dynamat Extreme if instaled properly (nice and warm with a roler) will keep everything nice and dry underneath, and if water does get underneath you can wipe it out with a cloth. I will use a sealer (household type scelant) on the Exmoor trim to prevent water infiltration.
