Re: Line-X/Rhino Liner
Well I went to the Line-X dealer yesterday. He looked my Jeep over and said it the was best one he has seen yet (condition wise in the cab). I grilled him with all sorts of questions, had him take me on a tour of his shop and show me how he does it all. He went through and showed me various samples of different liners and compared them with Line-X. Here's the deal.... Line-X is High Pressure Sprayed and is shot on HOT. That allows for a quicker drying time and a finer texture, as compared with Rhino Liner, which is Low Pressure Sprayed and shot on COLD. The Rhino Liner ends up with bigger globs, but both look comparable. Line-X is more Polyurethane based versus Rhino Liner which is more of a rubber based product. Line-X has more tensil strength and looks like it can endure more. I guess it just all depends on the application you are going to use it for and how you want it to look i.e. finer texture vs. thicker texture. I got the Line-X guy to drop his price down to $535 instead of $625. I talked to the Rhino Liner dealer and he said he would go $425. I also found out that all these spray on liner's use the same polyurethane. There is just one difference. The grade of polyurethane they recieve. For example, when the delivery truck ( tanker ) drops it off, certain companies get the stuff off the top, while the other companies get the poly that is on the bottom where most of the crud has settled, so it is a lower quality. I advise any one thinking about this to do some homework. I am still undecided as to which one I am going to go with, but will keep you guys posted when I get it done.
