using bed liner as insulator??

Hey all, One quicky, what are your thoughts on having bedliner sprayed in the nterior before getting the interior done? I've heard some good and some bad. The good was it sound proofs the interior like nothing else, and the bad was you couldn't see a problem occuring, such as rust. Has anyone tried it yet and what do you think?

I work for a Gov't contractor and they use a product very similar to Rhino Liner (may actually be Rhino Liner) as a sound/vibration dampener on the interior of some models of military trucks and also on the wheelwells to cut down on noise from debris thrown off the tires. The problem I see with using it on your car is that should you ever want to remove it it is a PAIN to get off!

Don't know why you would remove it but I could see that as a big problem if you had to. If you prep the metal and I mean either good primer or even paint before it should not rust. I put it on bare metal on a tractor once and it rusted under the liner. I did not do the best job of prep but was pretty sure there was no rust. I know on a truck it goes on over the factory paint so there is prior protection.

off roaders do this all the time. Rhino liner works well but you need to tell them you want low grit. They add texture to the material for the beds so stuff doesn't slide. IF you plan on putting anything over it in the cab, then you want a very smooth finish. I've even seen a truck that was completely coated in the stuff. Inside and out was covered with Rhio-line and then painted. Looked like a factory paint job with slight orange peel, but was a beast off road.

I don't know about spraying the stuff inside. It sounds like it may work. But when I had my Chevelle painted I had them spray Rihno liner on my wheel wells. It looks great and dirt washes off with a hose. Also no rock chips

This just crossed me, how does this stuff handle heat? If it is over a Cat or muffler that is close will it bubble off?
