Anyone ever used this spray on bedliner?

It's called U-Pol Raptor Truck Bedliner kit. I was wondering if anyone has ever used it. How does it hold up? I want to do a bedliner for my truck but i dont really want to spend 400 dollars on line x so i am going the cheap route. I have read alot of forums talking about Herculiner, if anyone has info about pro's and con's of this product as well please lettme know!

I've used similar products. You can't build it up as thick as a real sprayed bedliner, but it works pretty good. Prep is important. Sand or scratch the paint up well for adhesion. Mask everything you don't want it on, it goes everywhere. It takes a long time to dry. Don't plan on using it within a few days. If your looking to hide a bed color or just cover scratches it is great. If your planning on using it to haul bricks or debris, I'd go with the real thing.

The local napa store sells it, not to sure of the price...but i had checked on ebay and found that you can get it for bout 90.00. It comes with a spray gun also...i figured it would be convienent kit to use, but doesnt look like many people have used it. I dont plan on carrying nothing like bricks or debris very often mainly to just haul some deer around after the hunts, i just want it mainly for looks...i have a plastic bedliner...and noticed it was rusting a lil underneath so i figured i would go with a spray on.

Yeah I watched that show. They blew up a truck with lots of dynamyte(wrong spelling I know but can't remember right one at this time) and the only good piece left was the bed which had been rhino lined. I Know it is more expensive, but after those results, That is the only thing I will ever put in my truck.

i have seen some pretty crappy jobs done with do it yourself liners mainly peeling off after about a year. but i did see one that was awesome by a kid in my auto tech class it was a do it yourself roll on but instead he used a wagner power sprayer and sprayed it in (i think he layered it). but it has held up great and he always is hauling his motorcycle and stuff so it gets used and id say its as good as my dads line-x.

u-pol raptor is the best stuff i have used. sprayed a whole vw bug with it 4 yrs ago and it hasn't faded or peeled. i just bought a whole kit for my addicted offroad bumper. plan on giving it 4 or 5 coats. great stuff. much better than any of the roll on liner

like others have said, prep is definatly important. I had a friend spray his own truck, and he thought it was prepped properly but is started to flak after a couple years
