Durabak update

As you may recall, I lined the entire floor of my Suburban with Durabak bedliner about 2 months ago. I thought it a good time to give you all an update, since today is the first time I've really cleaned and inspected it.
1. I planned on sweeping it out with a brush, then using a scrubber and sponge for the tough stuff. There are so many nooks and crannies in the truck, I ended up using a vacuum. The ground-in M&M's the kids left in the back for me came right off with a bit of scrubbing.
2. The front floor boards get hot. I'm going to tough it out til the summer, to see how bad it gets. Then I'll decide whether or not to do something about it.
3. There is one spot that the liner rubbed off. I had something strapped down there, and the friction damaged the liner. So, either it isn't as tough as advertised, or didn't do a good enough job of prepping the area. Not sure.

Bottomline, I'm overall satisfied. There's a couple of quirks, but nothing too bad.

Again, I posted this in case anybody else is considering using Durabak or similar in their trucks. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
