Many truck owners don't realize that a spray-on liner can be installed on top of a truck bed. This is not only a great way to keep water away from your expensive truck, but it also makes it much easier to clean. Spray-on liners come in two forms - a liquid sprayer and an adhesive liner. Both are easy to install and maintain.
The spray-on liners that are sold in stores can be bought as either liquids or gels. You will find that both work well to protect your bed. If you have a pickup with an open bed, then a spray-on liner is probably your best option. You simply pour the liquid or gel onto the bed and press it down with the pump. The spray goes on quickly and has an even application.
An adhesive bed liner is just what its name implies. By using the right type of spray kit, it is easy to get a professional-looking finish. These sprays are applied with the aid of an adhesive gun, and they do a pretty neat job, filling up the area with a fluid that has an almost rubber texture.
These are available in either a liquid spray or a gel form. The difference lies in how the liquid or gel is applied to the bed. With a liquid spray kit, you simply drop the liner system down into the truck bed, run the spray gun over the bed, and then run the gun again to make sure that the coating is even all the way down.
An adhesive spray kit is a little more involved. To begin, you need to locate the appropriate nozzle for your spray gun. Next, you need to spray the desired number of coats on the bed. It's recommended that you spray the bed liner system at least three times before it becomes fully dry. Once the bed liner is fully dried, you can then run a bead of silicone caulk across the entire bed. This will help ensure that water will bead up on the edges of the liner and create a smooth surface.
Rhino liners also come in plastic sheet form. This type of kit is a lot like the liquid or gel kits described above. However, it doesn't have to be hard work to install. The sheets are simply rolled out, held in place by a couple of rubber washers, and then sprayed with a special agent. The advantage to this kind of bed liner is that it protects the truck's bed from getting scratched up during travel, and it rolls up flat, saving you the time and hassle of manually packing material around the bed.
Spray kits for rhino liners can also come as a liquid spray. These kits are easy enough to use that most people can do without assistance. To use these kits, all that is needed is an empty spray can, a brush, and some filler. Next, the brush is dipped into the can, and a liberal amount of liquid spray is applied to the bed. A second brush is used to allow the spray to be distributed throughout the bed. Then, cover up the bed, and the truck is good to go.
Spray kits for rhino liners are not only convenient, but they are also good for your wallet. Not only are they easy to install and operate, but because they are refillable, you can also save yourself money by never having to purchase spray again. If you decide to buy a spray kit, keep in mind that there are many different brands and models to choose from. Spend some time looking at different brands and their individual products before making a decision.
