Thanks Ranchero! Yep, durability is a big question mark in my mind as well. I've heard horror stories about the roll on stuff peeling off after short periods of time. But then I've had other people tell me that their bed liners have been in for a while and are holding up super. I'm assuming....we all know what kind of trouble THAT can get you into....that the prep work they did, or didn't do, is what causes the difference.
This truck gets used quite a bit on the farm and it has to do double duty as the tow vehicle for our car trailer and our horse trailer so I'd like for it to look nice as well as protecting the bed from future abuse. That's one reason that I'm looking at the do it yourself liners rather than the pro sprayed variety. Being able to repair any damage to the bedliner myself as it occurs.
Did the Duplicolor not have as much texture as you wanted out of the can? Is that why you went back over it with a textured roller? Looks good in the photos, BTW.
This is an 88, old body style, GMC long bed. Everyone keeps telling me a gallon and a quart will do the whole thing but I have doubts about that being enough for really good coverage.
