Bed liner on Cab floor

On a 53 GMC truck, would it look stupid to shoot bed liner on the floor? If so what kind of paint can can I spray over it I don't like a black floor?

Should I lay down an expoy primer first? ( I have tons of expoy primer )

I've been playing with the same idea in my 70 K10. I want to be able to hose my truck out. I've seen cab floors with products like hurculiner and was not impressed. Its really thin, brittle, and makes the truck sound like an empty beer can. You should check into Al's Liner/Scorpion Coating. Its a diy coating so it'll save you some money, but it goes down thicker. Its a little more rubbery than Rhino/LineX, so I think its a little more resilient. And it should be a little better for sound. Plus they have another product you can put under the liner that is specifically for sound and heat. Give them a call.

That would work just fine, and you don't need to settle for black, bedliner comes in other colors. Check this out: Grizzly Grip

Lizard skin would not be a good idea as a stand alone floor. It takes forever to completely dry and is still somewhat soft then.

Hahahaaha........ I am going to do the bottom side of the cab too. Bought some today. I can paint it later if I wish. Or mix it.

As a side bar:

I hate my MIG welder. All it does it make bird poop. One day all is well, assume welds, next day bird poop. I think I cheaped out and should have spent
500 bucks more on a MIG. Time for glue and my flange tool.

My son-in-law has a cheap HF welder - he had problems just like you describe - one time fine, the next time bird poop. No matter what he adjusted. We got him a new wire spool - name brand - problem solved (not perfect, but much better). The wire thickness wasn't consistent on the cheap wire so it wouldn't feed reliably.

Thanks for the tip Bob. I was wondering if it was my feeder, it seems to make sounds. Wire size would cause that.

Ok, that stuff looks assume on the floor!! I did a corner. Heck I am going to do right up the toes boards with it. Just....... I need a new cab. Once I started to
crack open this one.......... ruuuuuussst. I have some panels I bought, drop in and weld. But once I started cutting the cab dropped. And these thin panels are not going be strong enough to hold the cab up. The also don't fit. So I found
a new cab. Rust free. Just no corner windows. The guy selling it pointed out I can cut my windows out and overlay them. I have a flange tool. I can glue them in and kick that Mig. I am going to buy some quality wire. I am using what came with the MIG.

But the new cab is getting that bed liner. I got the dupli color with Kevlar. That stuff looks cool, rolls on like nutting, and cleans up with water. Even a cave man like me can do it!

Ye well guess what. That stuff sucks on the sides. Slips right down. Wish I had never done it. The can says recoat in one hour. Light use in 2 hours. 10 hours
later the stuff was still dripping down the sides and onto my driveway. And it was hot out! 90F or 34 C.

Stay away from the home kits for the sides

Did you read the package to find out if you're supposed to apply it when it's 90 degrees outside?

x2 90 is way to hot that means the metal is more like 120. did you brush or roll this on ? a nice thin coat should have been spayed on. you can roll flat areas , but sides should be sprayed.

opps

there is that learning curve again. can doesn't say a thing about being to warm. but it makes sense. my floor looks nice! it did take 4 days to dry, heat should help that? either way it is done. sides are getting
covered in insulation anyway.

brushed and rolled
