Floor Linning

I have a 1979 scout II. I recently pulled the rubberhose matting that was in the scout to find that it was holding water which led to some great rust spots. I am getting new floor pans piece by piece but when I am done what should I line the truck with. I Know alot of people linex the inside but if I ever end up selling the truck I dont want to risk the linex hurting the cost. Alot of people say that when you linex the inside it gets heave and when you have to top off it gets super hot. So I was wondering if there is an alternate route I can go but still be on the safe side so if it ever rains I dont have to worry about it holding water. I do not mind putting Linex down, I just wanted some opions before I went on with it. Thank you

Try one of those spray in liners like the Rhino lining or Ultimate lining. They stay pretty good in the back of a truck without heaving. I've seen alot of hard core wheelers spray the insides of their trucks with them for dirt and mud as well.

I used Durabak on my '77 Scout II.

As with most body work, it's all in the prep.

I repaired the rust, applied POR-15 over the surface rust, new metal and then scuffed everything up with a sander. After doing some research I opted to go this route vs. priming everything. There are plenty of comments on both scenarios. My experience has shown the scuff sanding has been adequate (after about a year so far).

If you're running no top or a bikini top, you'll want to get the UV-resisitant version.

Total cost was about $200 (again, last year).
