DIY bedliner on fiberglass?t

Considering applying the DIY bedliner to the interior of FarmJeep...covering the dash, the forthcoming center console, and the floor/interior walls. The ? is whether or not the liner will adhere to fiberglass. Anyone tried it before? Why am I doing this, you ask? To get a consistent color/appearance on everything, and to cover up some of the gouges and scratches in the fiberglass tub floor. Will it work?

Re: DIY bedliner on fiberglass?t

I've seen glass bodied Jeeps with do it yourself bedliners applied both inside and under the body tub. I've been looking at several different brands myself for my own project. Durabak.. advertises that it does work on fiberglass.. As far as preparation, I would guess it would be just like steel, rough it up, clean it (use Xylene or similiar) and you should be ready to roll.. 4" roller is whats recommended. Check with the mfg first though. Let me know what brand you choose, I've decided i'm going to spray mine since I'm doing a frame off using Morton Products. This seems to be what my local paint shops are recommending. The Jeep-Shop guy tunes in here once in a while, I believe the Jeeps pictured on their site are also done with Morton products if I read his previous posts right. My local auto paint dealer also said it can be custom mixed to match your vehicle also... cool.. but more $$$ of course. I beleive the Jeep shop is
Do a search on it, the installations they did are worth a look. Rick

Re: DIY bedliner on fiberglass?t

I used Durabac on mine about 3 years ago. Just cleaned it, roughed it with a green pad, cleaned with xylene, and two coats. There are a couple of places where I didn't get it coated well and its is showing a little white, but no peeling or anything like that.

I chose to get AJ's to line my tub before they shipped it out. Don't know what brand it was (wasn't Rhino or Line-X) and it's a little smoother than Herc, but it has held up well. As long as you prep it as directed, I would think it should be fine.

Re: DIY bedliner on fiberglass?t

I did the Herculiner to the bottom of my glass tub. I haven't had any issues with it sticking. Just cleaned it with xylene and applied.

I applied it to the outside as a 3" "kick" area around the tub. But it faded really bad in about 3 months of hot SC sun. We ended up cutting it off with razors before we painted it.

I'm on the search for some smooth liner to do my interior. I'd also like something in a grey or silver. I haven't settled on anything yet.....
