tintable bedliner coating??

Ok, my 98 S10 has a bad case of paint peel and a few surface rust spots along the bottom. I want to sand it down up to the lower body line and coat it with a bedliner coating. I know this sounds kind of redneckish LOL, but the truck is a 98 and has 150,000 miles and I just want to keep it looking good for a couple more year. Also I'm in Wisconsin, and in the winter if we get an inch of snow, they put a inch of salt on the roads. I think if I tint the bedliner coating the same has the body color it won't look too bad. Any suggestions???

The SPI bedliner comes with black tint and looks good as is. if you want it another color i would just top coat with some single stage..

You can easily tint SPI bedliner to any color you want as long as it isn't white.

Thanks for the info on the SPI bedliner. Now for part two, How should I prep the lower part of the body before applying the bedliner? The lower part of the the truck that I intend to cover has a little surface rust but mostly peeling paint.
Thanks guys!

SPI-i have no doubt a great product but never used it and folks here are saying its tintable(since that what you said you was wanting)

Raptor-tintable to any color,just mix in any auto paint for the tint

Monstaliner-is just now starting to come out with colors and tints

Gator Guard II-is said to be able to paint over it with any urethane paint

All rated very good DIY bedliners,i used Gator Gaurd II on my 95 Jeep Wrangler Hard Top and was quite impressed as to how it stood up to fading,i had it 3 years with that on it and never had any problems whatsoever...i just recently sold it and the full steel doors because i mostly use this thing in the summer without a top at all and have a soft top for the short winter months.

People in the Jeep community rave about the Monstaliner and the Raptor both as far as DIY bedliner is,some even do the whole exterior in it instead of paint.

I've never had any hands on or seen the SPI bedliner.,,but have no doubt it is a great product ,Barry should filter in some of the Jeep and 4x4 forums to highlight the bedliner and get them to try it out,there is a high usage in bedliners in the 4x4 communities.
Monstaliner has become VERY succesful in the DIY bedliner,i've personaly seen it on a few Jeeps around here in the tub and quite impressed with it's texture and toughness and ease of cleaning when it gets dirty..i'll be ordering that for my Jeep with the spice color to match the interior,86 bronco II custom topless project and the 66 bronco for the insides on all those..Monstaliner has some great prices and a great quality product, but just now starting to come out with colors

If i was you,i'd try to see the actual products on a vehicle if possible or at least some close up pictures of the texture and research personal reviews of the product of people who actualy used it..once you put a bedliner on anything its THERE..its not easy to remove and change if you decide you didn't like it, like you can paint..

Herculiner is JUNK..don't even go there...guys have used it in Jeep tubs for protection from water and mud when topless and it wore off easily on the floorbourds where the gas pedal is...lol

Line-X has been doing pretty good in that area too..but man is it high priced to get the different colors and done right...lol..i have it in my 97 F150 bed

And of course you know about Rhino Liners too..not sure about the color options but i can say that stuff last a LONG time and tuff..i have it in my F250 4x4 diesel the bed has been beat to death and holding up impressivly after 11 years..but this another one that is not a DIY product and high priced to be put on at shops like Line-X.

the spi is urethane based and can be reduced to fit the texture you want . tinting is a snap .
for a farm truck rhino is the only way to go . all the rest are for looks.
