my plan was to use my leftover bedliner for lower sections,still haven't gotten around to it,though.

if you've got chunky bedliner somethings wrong.not all gravel guard is paintable,read the can if you go that route.

What ever product you spray on there, you need to be very careful to tape off the area and sand any clearcoat away. The guys at Rhino-Liner sprayed the bottom few inches of my truck two years ago and they aparently missed a spot when they were sanding. With all the flexing of the poly-urithane, it's causing the clearcoat to lift up and flake off in front of my back tire. It looks aweful now and it will only get worse. I really need to get it into a shop to have that area re-cleared. I just haven't wanted to spend any more money.

I regret having it sprayed in the first place.

if the clear is coming off theres a different problem.not rhino missing a spot sanding.i've seen them prep and it's a joke,a red scuff pad.come on!this stuffs goin' on over an 1/8 inch thick and they use the equivalent of 400 grit.i personally hand sanded every nook and cranny of my bed(twice,i wrecked it) with 180 before i sprayed my bedliner.i've never heard of bedliner attacking clearcoat,even a re-paint unless that was prepped poorly.

This was on a 3 month old truck. It started peeling right at the transition between the paint and poly-urithane. It started out as just a little yellow bubble, and now a 6'' tall area has completly flaked off. The only way to fix it would be to sand the edges smooth and re-clear.

I looked up the price of that stuff and it is $114 a case thats 12 one liter each. Too much for me. I am doing it to cover up improfections and keep it from rusting anymore. It will be sanded to metal so no problem there. Paint isn't going to work in my case i want something thicker that will keep the rust from spreading. This is going on my 500 dollar beater, i want it to look somewhat good thats why i wanted to spray that part of the truck.

blazin24, if you have rust, bed liner is not going to stick permanently to your truck. You might want to coat it down with Os-pho. Eastwood has some kind of epoxi/tar stuff for fixing holes. There's also, something called cold tar epoxi. That I'm having sprayed under my older truck. It has to be sprayed on bare metal though.


The Rhino Liner is on there an 1/8" thick so it's not going to flake off. It is very well stuck to the clear. If I pick at the raised edge of the Rhino Liner it makes the clear lift up from the paint. There's an air space between the clear and the paint caused by the Rhino Liner flexing from rocks hitting it or whatever. It may not have happened if the edge had been sprayed closer to the body (not so thick).

I wish there were some way to stop it from getting worse. If I could disolve the clear in that area, I could coat it down with Liquid Glass. Would Xylene work?
