pre-cleaning for bedliner

anyone know what would be a good solvent to use to clean the INSIDE of my cab to coat it with a bedliner. i ripped the carpeting out because i got it all wet lastweekend with about 4" of water... need to get some of the glue off and get rid of the sand.
by the way, i got the dupi-color bed liner, it is cheap at meijer...

Re: pre-cleaning for bedliner

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Either a product called TSP (trisodium phosphate) should work, or something like Prep-solŪ (trademarked name)... You want to make sure there's no wax or anything in there, because those will mess with the adhesion of the coating. Probably be better off to go to a parts store or paint store (professional auto paint supplier) or call them and find out what they recommend for removing wax and other such things... Also rough all the surfaces up with sand paper to make sure the liner sticks better... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]</font>

Re: pre-cleaning for bedliner

U prolly won't be happy with the duplicolor liner.

But here how I do truck beds Use a 36 grit on a da and sand it enough to roughen it up then blow it out and use methenal to wipe it down with then wipe it with a clean rag to get all the residue that the meth. may leave behind. Then liner away
