The bed liner paint is advertised as a thicker coating than the competition. The Dip Doctor just painted an an old truck. The coating is thicker, the texture a bit more like a professional spray on liner than our competitors
The Dip Doctor offers colors other than black. You can get white, gray and red. Also The Dip Doctor offers a complete bed liner spray in one package. It’s a little more expensive than the other options, but we use a little more advanced product. Remember we use an extra quart for extra durability The hardest part is cleaning and sanding the existing paint coat and then masking for painting. The actual application to the clean bed will be fast. We cay use brushes or spray up under the bed rails and then a roller on the rest of the bed.
Bed paint has small rubber granules in it that gives it some texture. The paint sticks well and dries in about a day. The looks of the bed is much improved over the original worn bed. After a few years you may have a few gouged out places in the coating. These can be easily retouched with spray bed liner paint. A few of the little rubber granules have broken out of the paint as things have been dragged along in the bed. You get a little white spot there, but no problem.
Our Bedliner process has been very satisfactory on many trucks. Cheap, durable and good looking. Note that the real work in putting on a roll on bed liner is the surface preparation. Getting the surface to be coated clean really takes some special automotive cleaner to get off ALL the grease, oil and wax that might be on the bed. You cannot sand it off either. Clean it off… Sanding is a must as well.
Sanding with coarse abrasives is what must happen. A really scratched up surface is what will hold paint the best. That should be done all over the bed for best results.
