How to Install a Spray-On Truck Bed Liner


Installing a Spray-On Bed Liner

Preparing the Bed

  • Wash the bed with a car wash soap that’s free of wax or protectants and allow it to fully dry
  • Scuff the surface of the bed with 36 grit sandpaper or equivalent. This provides a good surface for the liner to adhere to
  • Wipe the bed clean of all sanding debris and dust
  • Mask off areas that do you not wish to have the liner on
  • Coat the bed with the included adhesion promoter or primer, depending on your kit

Setting Up For the Spray

  1. Connect the spray-gun and adjust the air pressure to the manufacturer recommended level
  2. Mix a small amount first and test spray a piece of cardboard. Adjust the spray pattern accordingly

Coating the Bed

  1. Fill the hopper and spray the bed with the gun 18” away in long, sweeping motions. Be sure to vary the spray paths to avoid any “shadowing” patterns from formin
  2. Apply thin coats with 10 minute drying time in between until the desired thickness is reached.
  3. Remove all masking tape and allow the liner to cure for the recommended length of time

Congratulations on Installing a Spray-On Liner!

My 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road Access Cab 4x4 offers bed space to camp in, haul my dirt bike around, and it's been done up to take on the trails. Favorite mods include my Icon coilovers to soak up the bumps. My Walker Evans 501 Legend wheels wrapped in Toyo RT tires give me the clearance from my upper control arms to fit (and they look darn good) and the over-sized tires take on rocks with plenty of traction. My Rigid Industries fog lights have kept me out of a ditch or two when night wheeling. Growing up going to car shows and helping my dad work on the family vehicles ignited my passion. My best memory was the first time I flushed the coolant. My dad forgot to tell me to keep my face out from under the drain plug. Never made that mistake again!
