Truck Bed Liner for Undercoat and Fenderwells

I like the idea of using spray on truck bed liner for the underside of the floor and the insides of the fender wells. My concern is that I want a red car. I know that, from working in a paint shop (house paint, not automotive) that you can't tint to red. You get pink regardless of how much red you put in. You have to start with a red base. Does the same "rule" apply to truck bed liner. I was thinking about going with this - http://www.eastwoodco.com/shopping/p...iProductID=517
or this -
http://www.southernpolyurethanes.com...0Bedliners.htm

Anyone have any experience with doing this in a red to match the car?

You can tint a tintable bedliner red - bright red. No problem.
I've tinted 2 different brands red and I'm sure the rest are similar.

Larry is right.

I got to meet Larry a week ago when I was in there UP of Michigan, Great guy.

I can myself only speak of mine as its a cloudy clear with no tint added about the same as the intercoat clear.

Using a high grade red tint one for UV protection and two for coverage you can mix the formula for any red in an 8-10oz mix add it to the gallon and it will be within a shade.

Also I'm seeing a lot of shops coat the underneath of cars while on a rotisserie with the bed liner and then basing and clearing the next day.

I saw a demo of Lizard Skin ceramic at the Louisville meet a couple of weeks ago. I was very impressed with both the insulating and sound deadening qualities of it. Also there seems to be another product that is identical to Lizard Skin, it is Cool Car. The demo on it was equally impressive. Problem with bed coatings is they are very heavy and not very flexible.

I scratch off bed liner for my 34 because of the weight issue.

I use SPI bedliner all the time on the bottom and interior floor of cars we are working on. We sprayed inside a 70 Mustang fender. Where the marker light was taped up we had to cut out the bedliner with a razor blade (did not stick to the masking tape). You can bend that piece and have both ends touch and it does not break.

This is good news. I am a ways off from doing this, but I like to plan ahead. Now the question is how to do it? I am no expert on any of this. Barry, is this the correct order? Epoxy primer, filler (not sure if I want to get this AR with the underside or not, but just in case....), sealer, base coat (same as topside), bed liner reduced with 870 containing 8 - 10 oz. per gallon of the same tint as the base coat (assuming I go SPI, can I get the tint from you or will you tell me where to get it). Since I really don't want a lot of texture on the finish, 870 all the way out? The more advice the better. Thanks all for your input.

On the floor boards, under car, and fender wells we spray black epoxy and than black bedliner. If you want it body color I would spray epoxy that would be best for your base coat, color tint the bedliner and spray.
