September 1, 2006I plan on prepping my bed with POR-15 then using the cheap roll-on. A friend of mine did that to his 74 F150 and it looks great. Another friend had his sprayed and I guess they didn't prep as good because it scratches off easy. I know that POR-15 bonds to the metal and is really hard to scratch or sand. IMO John

September 1, 2006Be carefil using the POR-15. The finish is so slick on it that many coatings will not stick to it. You can use an etching primer over it (the POR-15 guys do make one). Another trick is to apply the coating while the POR-15 is slightly tacky. This is the method that LIZZARD SKIN told me to use when I applied their product to my interrior. You may want to check witht he bed liner company first to see if the products are compatible with each other.
September 1, 2006I have photo documented the install of both Line-X and Rhino linings and both require the bed paint to be scratch up or sand blasted to ensure a good bond! I would be the roll-on would work best on a rough surface as well, even bare metal!
May 23, 2007Make sure you prep your bed REALLY good, my friend used the roll on stuff in his truck and its already just chipping away, and it hasn't even been in there a year.
