    I got my Truck's bed sprayed with linex two days. I have one question today I notice that the paint on the hole truck feels like sand paper is this normal after you get linex??? Would a wash fix it? Let me know guys

    I would try a wash first. If that doesn't work I would clay bar the truck. It's a ton of work (and make sure you wax after) but, it takes off all the minute debris that washing misses.

    Well....I would take it back to them and tell them they got overspray all over your truck. Which is easily prevented with some masking paper

    hold them accountable. they did the work and should guarantee the integrity of the remainder of your truck.

    No fallout or overspray on my truck when they sprayed my Line-X.

    I'm with RockLobster, I'd try to wash it and see if it all comes off. If that shop didn't bother to mask off the body work, do you trust them to clay and detail your truck?

    I would have told them you're going to get it professionally detailed on their dime

    I am down with this!! Tell them, TELL them, ahead of time so you don't end up in court with a bill that was not an agreed to resolution. If they have ANY integrity - and want to keep your or anyone you know business - they will be happy to "eat" the charge. I got my rocker panels & fender flares Line-X'd and they did a GREAT job -- so I guess there is NO excuse for overspray from a bed.

    Keep us posted!!!

    Did not have this problem at all. Sounds like they got a little lazy.

    x2 I had mine done about 3 years ago here in phoenix az. and no problems. I would take it back and show them. Thay should make it right. LineX is one of the better ones.
