Floor repair finishing?

I just finished the floor repairs on my 1950 Jeepster. Since it is a convertible, there will probably come a time when the floor will get rained on. I was thinking about using a bed liner material to coat the floor for durability and protection from the elements. I would appreciate any thoughts on this.
Thanks,
Tom

Bed liner is a great idea...and when it does rain it shouldn't be quite as slippery.
Good Call. By the way, nice job, looks real good.

Wait!!!! Cover it in Chassis Saver first. This is a sealant that will keep it from ever rusting, then you can bedliner over the top. It will last forever that way. Chassis saver is available,at the local auto paint supply shop.

Is that similar to POR 15 I hear so much about?

Por15 is actually not that great, I wont use it, it lifts after time. Look up chassis saver on YouTube and online there are tons of examples.

Thanks for the comments. I'll look up chassis saver and probably go that route. Is it a spray or roll on application? Thanks again, Tom

Chassis Saver is junk, like they all are. I can show you a hundred examples of Chassis Saver failure on my 67 Mustang that has never even left restoration yet. That means sitting only in a garage, rust has surfaced back through things coated with Chassis Saver that were only painted but a few years ago. In fact I'm embarrassed to admit on here I've actually used those products.

Spray your floors with epoxy, then cover with bedliner. SPI makes BOTH. That will be a guaranteed bulletproof combination.

Epoxy is an actual sealant that will seal out all air and water, and is something professionals actually use.

I'm cleaning up my floor then putting on a thin fiberglass resin layer and finally painting it with bed liner. On top of the bed liner some individual carpet mats and I'm done. It'll look good and it should be water proof.

Hey, Have you ever thought about installing some dynamat? I am laying my cab with something similar to that and at this point I’m pretty much 90% done. Feels and sounds quiet in the already!
I’ve heard and seen some great results, not only to decrease street noise and any squeaking but it also keeps your cab cooler in the summer!

opps I was walking about cab interior of course not a bed

SPI epoxy, then SPI bedliner.
You can roll or brush the epoxy, but the bed liner needs to be sprayed through a special gun , SPI sells those also.


I have tried the roll on type bedliner and I found its durability is poor at best.

Your comment about dynamat got me thinking. I did some research and Home Depot sells "Quick Roof" for EXTREMELY WAY LESS cost than dynomat and when you check youtube videos it convinced me. People are using it on their RVs so it has to be strong. I'm going to pick up a roll and test it inside the cab before I install the floor carpet and the headliner.
