Consequently, how long does rustoleum bed liner last?

Well the Rustoleum only lasted a day. I used four cans on the rock sliders. I would coat them real good then let them set for 24 hrs or more then recoat (took 3 days). Then I let them cure for about 4 days in a room at 70 degrees.

How many gallons of bed liner do I need to paint my truck?

If you really wish to paint over the Herculiner, you can by using a polyurethane based paint. If the Herculiner will be on the surface for a long period of time and is weathered, you will have to clean the surface using TSP and a stiff bristled deck brush. Then rinse the surface and let it air dry.

How do I wash my bedliner?

If you need to clean the bed with its liner on, an all-purpose cleaning gel or liquid can do the job. Scrub the liner to remove the dirt and debris. Step 3 - Use a high-pressure hose to rinse it off and allow everything to dry. However, you may use a microfiber cloth to wipe away excess water if you wish.

Should I sand between coats of Rustoleum?

With water-based topcoats, sand any "grain-raise" smooth before applying the final coat. Note: Sanding between coats is not necessary, but it will provide a better finish. After a coat has dried, use 220 or 240 grit sandpaper or extra fine steel wool to lightly sand surface.

Does bedliner stop rust?

No. Even if you have a little rust, it will just mask it. The rust comes through the body and usually doesn't start as surface. The liner will mask and then make the rust worse.

How much does a quart of bed liner cover?

This 1 Quart can is enough to finish a standard 6-foot truck bed, or 12-20 square feet. When dry, the finish is skid-resistant and provides much-needed traction for years to come, due to its solvent-based properties.

Will bedding stick to plastic?

Also don't use spray on undercoating. That stuff will flake or discolor. Bed liner will take reasonable flex and stick to plastic with great duability.

Can you brush on Raptor liner?

You then order the Raptor Liner kit, and clean the surface. Then, just like a can of spray paint, you shake the can and apply. One quick note: you can use a paint roller to apply Raptor Liner, but it's a little harder to get consistent results. Thicker areas can develop a softness you don't want.
