    K so my fenders are starting to look like $#!t and im sick and tired of it. Thinking about doing some kinda bedliner but i want to keep my budget fairly low on this one. (under 100 if i can). Has anyone tried the do it yourself herculiner on theirs? if so wha steps did you take to do it and how did it turn out?

    I tried the heat gun trick...didn't work very well. I think one of the mods did the bedliner on his (if I'm not mistaken). Subscribed for post-mod pics.

    [EDIT: Infidel is on it.]

    i did the bedliner in my bed. i just sanded it down with scuff pads and rolled it on. saved me a bunch of money but its already fading a little. and im actually sandin down my fender flairs and about to paint them right now. pretty stoked

    yea but its not permanent. if you go talk to a line-x shop and see how much theyd charge if they did a truck and could spray you flares at the same time theyd prolly be happy to do it for the 100 range

    yeah but the upkeep i had to do when I herculiined my grill surround and bumpers was a pain in the bump. bedliner just fades after awhile too.

    i'd rather just buy tire shine and hit them up every time i wash my truck to keep em looking good. quick, easy, painless, doesnt hurt the wallet.

    I agree completely. Everytime I wash my truck i just take an extra few minutes and hit the fenders with tire shine. I'm tight on $$ so anything more permanent isn't worth it to me

    I did 4 coats of the Mothers Back to Black on all 4
    It made a HUGE difference but they are ruined so I need to do something like paint or bedliner on them.
