    Bought mine PC, wish I had gotten the raw and canned em so they could be touched up. Which brings up an important question, what is the best method to touch up PCed stuff? :confused:

    Can't you just scuff and rattle can over the powder coat?

    Yes. I've done that a lot. Rustoleum Satin is a close match to black PC.

    THIS! Bedliner would be the last thing I'd use on sliders or bumpers or anything that's going to get scraped on the rocks. Besides being hard to touch up, it looks like crap when it scrapes off. And it WILL scrape off! Often it will peel off in large chunks too.

    I've always used Rustoleum Satin. Works great and looks close to the finish of PC. Easy to touch up.

    Agree with that. Toughness of bed liner and ease of touch up from rattle can. My old rangers bumper was painted this way and I never had an issue with touch ups.

    Flats even easier to touch up, but I do like some sheen.

    Yep, best choice for me... and I think that's the point, for me.

    Some people love bedliner and I tend to think they are the ones who have plasti-dipped everything and put in a lot of miles around malls... or just have a ton of money to blow ;)

    But like I said, I'm not too familiar with the supposedly easier and cheaper rattle can bedliner stuff, maybe it's a bit more practical than the traditional bedliner for sliders that actually get used.

    Rustoleum Primer and Rustoleum rattle can Truck Bed Liner. Have already had to touch up a couple spots because I don't have mud flaps and little rocks get thrown onto the "inner legs."

    I just coated mine in Semi-gloss POR-15, then sanded and sprayed with Rustoleum flat textured for grip. Looks great.

    Seems like a lot of extra trouble for nothing. Apply, sand, apply some more. So what happens when you get scratches... apply, sand, apply some more again? That would get old. I suppose if you never actually use your sliders it's not an issue though. But even if I didn't use them I wouldn't bother with the expense and trouble of POR-15 unless rust was a very serious issue.

    Well, rust was the issue. The paint was chipping off and they had a few areas of rust from scratches and scrapes. I used buffer pads on an air tool to remove the rust, then applied the POR15. POR is supposed to prevent rust and is also scratch and water resistant... which makes it a good undercoat. When I sanded the POR to spray the Rustoleum, that was just to scuff up the surface so the paint can stick better. IDK about you, but my sliders are welded on and getting the old paint off and re-coating them was a pain. I'd rather do it once and not worry about it again... just touch up with the textured Rustoleum (which also hide imperfections and scratches) when/if they do get scratched up.

    I'm still not sure what I'd prefer to use. Bed liner or Rustoleum paint. I really prefer the bed liner, but it seems like it's 50/50 on how well people say it holds up and how easy it is to touch up...

    Herculiner and dabbing it on with a brush. Came out great. Perfect grip and it covers really well. Cant brush it on tho or the media thats in the paint will just brush away.

    For the rustoleum satin do you guys just apply with a paint brush? How many coats do you apply?
