Rhino lining your plastics

Anyone who has rhino lined there plastics are you taking them and having them sprayed by a professional rhino liner company or can you use the bed liner stuff you can get at home depot.

Has anyone used the bed liner stuff you get at home depot??

If so can you post a pic for me, and let me know how it is holding up.

And if you have used the bed liner stuff from home depot how easy was it to do??? Is it a spray one or a roll on??

Thanks so much for your input,

Loanshark

hey, I sprayed my plastic with the duplicolor truck bed coating from schucks,wallmart, auto zone, and fred meyers just to name a few, but that stuff sucks, was not durable at all. Then I did the dreded and stripped it off. Then I used 60 & 100 grit sand paper and scuffed up the entire plastic surface, Then cleaned the plastic with brakleen to make sure its clean and there is no gloss left on the plastic at all, ( spray the brakleen on a rag, not dirrectly on the plastic, Brakleen eats most plastics if left on to long). Then, I got it off ebay and I think it was called Xtrem truck bed coating, I sprayed my plastic with that, it is a 2 part, And it has held up pretty good, the only issue I have had is I rolled my rhino and the hood flexed alot and it cracked and some came off, but that was a easy touch up. The best one I used, was Rattle gaurd truck bed coating that I bought off ebay, and I did a friends with that, and it seems to be the most durable.

I used the spray on stuff from Kragen in my batt box on the M/H and it never seemed to harden well, protects from acid though. LOL

I just had my truck done at Line-x and asked for a quote on the Rhino. The guy said they haven't had good luck getting it to adhere to plastic well. He said the whole pice needs to be shot to totally 100% cover plastic. That way the Line-x actually bonds to itself. He showed me some plastic chairs they did and it was flaking off for an example. To do 100% (both sides) would add a lot of weight to a Rhino and make it about impossible to line all the holes for the bed and dash back up. I did see one at the San Sports Super Show that was Line-x'd but it was fresh out of the spray booth, so it explains why it looked good with no flaking I suppose.

I haVe had my plastics done for over a year now and the only crack or blemish is where I rolled it and the plastic flexed alot, other than that it is ok.

I have used the new Fusion rattle can at wal-mart it seems to do very well so far. It is about 5.50 a can as long as you clean the plastics real good it seems so far to do very well. It is flexible as well as pretty duarable, the color choices arent the best but are OK. thanks Rick
