Default Re: Herculined the bed!

That looks good, did you take your bed bolts out to do it?

I've been meaning to do the bed on our F250... I've been rolling around with the only the sides Herculined for about 6 months, lol.

I only taped off the bed bolts, I painted them before I lined the bed.

Yeah nothing slides with that in there!! I did an anti corrosive paint then the brilliant red, I left the bolts on when I painted them.

When you taped off the bolts, how did you do it without getting the tape stuck into the Herculiner?

lol it doesnt. I have it in my truck... 4 coats and it still got holes in it. I just periodically go over it with spray paint and nobodys the wiser. I also run a 1/4" thick rubber mat in my bed to help with said problem. Ive done 8 trucks so far with it and all with the same results. looks good though!

if you dont run a tonneau cover, it will fade in the direct sunlight
