Deck Restore Used as Bedliner/Rock Panels

So I've been looking into bed-lining my rock panels to guard against chips and whatnot and I found something interesting that I wanted some opinions and thoughts on. First off, I can't afford currently to Line-X or anything like that. I hear a lot of mixed reviews about Herculiner roll on and other sprays. But i saw this on an amazon review and I had to ask the Tacoma World Powers that be...
I quote from http://www.amazon.com/ss/customer-re...owViewpoints=1
"This DIY was solid at first but will require additional upkeep within the first two years. I let it go due to pure laziness. I have recently stumbled on a rubber based deck restore that achieved the same (if not better) results for 1/4 of the price. Your local home improvement store will be able to not only advise but mix to any color! Rust-o-leum deck restore is the new DIY, and @ $25 per gallon, even with possible upkeep, you can't beat it..."
I assume you guys have seen this stuff, the deck restore paint that is. It's pretty tough and seems similar to bed-liner strangely enough. But what are your thoughts? Would it actually work and hold up?
And while we're talking bed-lining rock panels, any reasonable priced options you'd recommend? I've been doing a lot of searching. I'd really like to not spend over $100.

I've had this stuff on my wood deck here in sunny/ wet Florida for two years now and have nothing what-so-ever bad to say about it. It has not faded, cracked, chipped or pealed up yet. And this is with extremely heavy use by myself and 4 large dogs who play "chase the bug" on it.

I would suppose that in order get proper bonding to your paint, you would have to prep the area just like they do for the bed liner stuff. i.e. roughing up your paint to get a good bond.

Another avenue you might look into if you really don't want your paint messed up is to have a vinyl decal or "wrap" done on the areas you want to protect.

My .02 for what it's worth and if you do it, post some pics

How much do you think a vinyl wrap would run for just doing rocker panels?
I actually did find this thread, but he hasn't updated since March so I don't know how things are now.. He beat the snot out of his though..

All of those deck restore products have bad reviews.

Good reviews changed to bad reviews when the decks started peeling. I was going to use it on my deck after reading all the good reviews, but now not worth the risk.

There was a thread on here somewhere where someone tried out that deck paint. After throwing rocks, bricks and and whatever else normally goes into a truck bed, the paint began to chip, peel and was otherwise useless.

Wood, being more porous, is easier to have coatings bond.

The thing you have to remember is, it's a thin coating of construction material. Not actually going to protect against repeated brick, stone, and any other heavy debris. Probably not designed with automotive metals in mind, either. You might find a salvaged Taco with the plastic bedliner still intact and put it in your bed... Cheaper & probably less work, too. ...my 2 cents worth...

In case y'all missed it in not looking to do this in my bed but for my rock panels. So getting a bed out of another Tacoma doesn't help me but I do appreciate the suggestion. I'll look into the raptor spray and see if anyone will lend me their compressor.

I'd think you'd be able to rent a compressor from any decent equipment rental place. All the ones where I live have compressors available, and not at all costly

My bad, some people (me) just don't read enough. After actually reading everything, I'd say find some high-density plastic you can cut to desired shapes, add some rubber lining to act as a cushion between the plastic and body, and bolt it to your frame. Like wings. And, plastic comes in a shit load of colors, so you can blend them in... Hopefully that was a more helpful suggestion, actually sticking to the topic...

Why not just go with Expel, Trimbrite, or one of the myriad other inexpensive protective films designed specifically to protect rockers?
