Default Duplicolor bed liner not so good, rustoleum??

I bought a qt of the Duplicolor bed liner the other day for $18. I applied it after sanding the entire area of the back of the YJ tub with 60grit sandpaper. Well I go out the next day and there are areas where it has bubbled and scraps away very easily.

I have always just rustoleum on the entire floor and has never let me down. When it starts to wear away on the driver side floor pan I just recoat it.

Question is for those that use this, do you apply the rustoleum primer first? Or just rustoleum the painted/bare metal?

I have the duplicolor spray-on bed liner on my bumper and rockers and never had a problem. I know it will flake if you do mulitple coats more than 10 minutes apart. I don't know if the temp plays a part in this though. Another thing is that it takes about 2 weeks to fully cure, but then it's tough as hell.

it seems like the stuff you buy in the can is different than the qt. For one you don't get that nice texture.... I used a brush so you see the lines (which I don't care about).

I sprayed my bumper with the spray and it does OK.

If there was any of the rustoleum left that is most likely what caused the duplicolor bed liner to act like that. Lacqure over enamel thing.

Don't have a lot of experience with bed liner in a can, but possibly look at getting a thing of wax and degrease and finish with a tack cloth. Just thinking with painting cars...would a silicone product such as Armor All irritate bed liner? I've seen that happen once or twice while in the spray booth.

I used a wax/grease remover. The areas where it seemed to bubble was on regular paint, which was under the rustoleum. Regular paint being automotive paint.

I really don't know why I used the bed liner as nothing is going to be placed in the rear, and I run the rear bench seat. I'll have my fuel cell taking up all the trunk space.

I'm just pissed about my $20 lol. I do have a little less than 1/2 qt left.

use the duplicolor over top of my rustoleum and vice versa, never seen an effect,
the roll on duplicolor usually takes more than 2 days to cure, it will be dry to touch after about a 12hours or so. i did the whole interior and could smell it curing for almost a week.

x2 anything under that stuff causes it to bubble up and and not adhere right. It will pull any paint right off with it. Which is good for when you have to redo it. learned from personal experience...

rustoleum has bedliner in a spray can to now, works pretty well. i saw someone spray the rockers on his truck all he did was wipe the it down with paper towel and has been on there for a few months and looks pretty good. im surprised it didnt come off since it was not prepped

Talking A way to get better Results from Rustoleum Bed Liner

Here's a little trick (more like great undertaking) That seems to make the Rustoleum Bed Liner stick pretty good. I did this to the Channel Frame of my Ford F-150. Use something like a DeWalt grinder with 36 grit sander wheel and strip that dogone rust down to mostly bare metal! Spray on a good even coat of Rustoleum Rust Reformer Primer. (This stuff is better than most Rustoleum stuff). Let it fry for a day or two. Them git yerself a nice big bucket of nasty smelling Truck Bed Liner. It claims to kill children in their sleep so it has to be good! Then, slather that stuff on with a good brush in an even coat. Then do a slight recoat about two hours later. I did this t0 the frame and all of the new leaf spring hangers and shackles and coil spring brackets when Dad and I rebuilt the whole Chassis on our 95' F-150. It seems to stick good and the finish is presentable, but not show quality (does in need to be?). It has decent durability for just a thin coat. I have yet to see how it holds up in the long haul that that time consuming method works good. If you really clean that metal and prime it, thats what does the magic. Please folks... dont be like the guys in their Honda Civics that paint over dirt!!! Have a good one!

i rolled it on my xj, never had a problem. my buddy used the spray can stuff on the under side of his WS6, and my other buddy got a qt and brushed it on in his wheel wells on his gto. all with great results. all in the prep, make sure there is NO rust or eles it wont bond to the surface.

EDIT; this was all the duplicolor stuff.
