How Old Does the Bed of Your Truck Look?
The inside of the pick up has been detailed, including cleaning the carpet and upholstery; the bedliner has been selected, and the wire tape is ready. Your friend promises that with the correct wire tape he will be able to create the perfect edge when he uses the bedliner spray gun. In fact, your friend assures you that the wiretrim tape helps achieve a perfect edge and without it he cannot guarantee the results.
It sounds like a lot of work, but it is not every day that your big city granddaughter says that she would love to drive your used pickup truck when she heads back to Louisiana for her sophomore year in college. Throughout high school in the big city and during her first year in college she was driving some little foreign made sporty looking thing.
She remained safe in the accident that was not her fault, but that little car crunched up like a tin can when another driving ran a red light and turned right into her. Now, she seems to understand that driving a bigger vehicle and riding up higher in a truck is a safer way to travel. Plus, as she explains, half the parking lot in her dorm is half full of pickup trucks.
You are excited about her having your pickup, but you cannot send it to her like it is. A little detailed clean up to the interior and the spray on bedliner and then you will feel good about handing her the keys. You know that it runs great and has low milage, but you have been a little rough on the interior and the bed.
Truck Bedliners Protect the Things That You Haul and Make for Easy Clean Up
Trucks have always been popular vehicles. In fact, in the year 2012 alone 1.6 million pickup trucks were sold in America.Many of these truck owners like to customize their vehicles and protect the things that they haul. As a result, many install spray on bedliners before they ever start driving their new vehicle.
In addition to looking nice, spraying polyurethane bedliners serves two basic purposes. First, it adds years of service by preventing scratching and rusting, as well as chemical contamination from deteriorating standard original equipment manufacturer paint. Second, a beliner can create a roughed up, anti-skid or anti-slip surface that will keep things from sliding during transport. This textured surface also creates a safer surface for the owner who is loading and unloading the truck.
Bedliner application is often done by professionals, but can also be achieved by truck owners if they have the right supplies, including the ever important wire tape for creating a straight edge.
