    Default Bedliner Line-X Spray your whole truck?

    I know people have been doing this for a while, but take a look at that Camaro that's all done up with Line-x.

    I've seen several trucks done this way - two F-250s and an F-150. This first time I saw bedliner used outside of the bed, the whole lower half of the truck was covered in it, from the bottom of the windows down. It looks good and of course is durable. It maks a lot of sense to do it on a truck but I'm not so sure about doing it to a Camaro.

    Personally I think it is a absolute horrible idea. Unless your building a rock crawler or a pure work/farm truck and that's all it will be doing then fine. Personally I need contrast and a beautiful shine, not grey/black. The first car I saw was a honda in Wilkes Barre that someone did their self with duplicolor bed armor. Didn't like the look then, and do not like the look now.

    West Coast customs did the Camero for Line-X a few months back.
    Would I personaly do this to a new Camero? No.
    But the end result does look good.

    To each their own.

    if I had the money, I would do it for my avalanche. I would leave the emblems normal though, and probably keep chrome rims on it to break up the black.

    How much weight do you think that adds to the truck?

    I suspect it adds some weight but probably not as much you'd think. Basically one layer of Line-X versus several layers of primer, paint and clear coat.

    There have been times already when I wish I had more than the cladding. Trails to campgrounds give the clear coat a nice scuffing. Would be nice to blow right through the brush with less concern

    i was watching storm chasers the other day. the one group had a NNBS sierra done with line-x or rhino liner color matched (summit white i think), unless you where up close you really couldnt tell.

    i kinda liked it.

    if/when the bottom of my truck gets trashed I may get the bottom third done like alot of people have talked about. I love my bedliner.
