Truck Bed Armor


Protect your truck box
from rust and scratches.

Most products provide
years of protection from
scratches, dents and
normal wear-and-tear.

By doing the job yourself,
you can save money.

Choose the product
that you prefer, ready
to use, or epoxy mix.

If you pick the epoxy
mix, you simply add
the hardener and mix
for ten minutes, before
applying.

In both cases you must
have a clean surface
free of dirt and oil.

Wipe down the truck
bed with a cleaning
product such as varsol.

The total area to be rolled
must be dry and scuffed
with a medium sandpaper
or abrasive pad.

Clean up the underside
of the fender wells, do
a good cleaning.

You will be able to use
any excess protective
coating here.

Decide if you just want
to do the inside of the
truck bed or the top rails
as well.

I recommend doing the
top rails also because if
you are throwing something
into the truck bed, it may
land on or bounce off
the rail at one time or
another.

Mask off the area where
you want the protective
edge to end.

Use a roller on flat areas
and a brush in corners and
in dents.

Roll on generously and
draw up the pikes, they
will give your job a
professional look.

As the product cures,
the pikes will shrink
considerably.

With the epoxy mix you
have 1 hour of working
time.

The products set up
in 2 to 3 hours.

It takes 9-12 hours to
cure for light use and
2 to 3 days for heavy use.

A 6 ft. truck bed requires
1 US gallon, add 1 US
quart for 8 ft. beds.

When the job is complete,
you will have a skid-resistant
surface that will bond and
seal against rust.

Most products are
repairable if you should
get a nick, as the products
will bond to it.

A small nick to the metal
can also be covered over
with a rust resistant paint.

A rolled/painted on liner
will not only look good,
but will make your vehicle
worth more.


Dupli-Color Bed Armor


Dupli-Color bed armor is
a water based polyurethane
coating.

It is low odor and provides
a hard rubberized finish.

It is impact resistant, won't
flake, chip or peel.

Easy cleanup, this product is
also a good choice.
