Does bedliner work on back seat's plastic?

I finally got sick of hearing my dog sliding around in my truck when she ride in back (no, I don't drive crazy - she's only got 3 legs). I keep the rear seats in my DC down, and as most of you can guess, they're pretty slick plastic.

Anybody know if rattle-can bedliner or undercoating would work on the seats? I thought I read on the can backs that it should be sprayed on metal.

If not, I'm thinking of maybe cutting up some inner tubes and glueing them onto the seat backs. Any particular glue work better than others? Gorilla glue came off pretty quick last time I tried something similar.

Thanks!

I used some indoor/outdoor carpet from lowes and some self tapping screws to affix it to the back of the seats. No more sliding dog for me!

Bedliner should stick, prep it good. Use some moderate grit (120) sandpaper to rough it up, and wipe it down with plastic safe solvent. A spray adhesion promoter would help also (used on plastic car bumpers).

I'd use indoor/outdoor carpet and put it down with automotive velcro. That way you can take it out an hose it down as needed.

How would you get the velcro to stick to the back of the carpet?

Good idea, I'm currently doing the same with the foamy stuff people stand on for garage, cooks, etc. I'd love to find some neoprene sections to do it in instead!
