Own a '99 F350 PSD with what appears to be a cheap roll-on bedliner. The material is separating and flaking off. Would like Line-X to spray, but know they won't shoot over top of this stuff. Can anyone recommend a product or method to remove the old bedliner without damaging the underlying paint? Thanks
My truck had a roll in liner [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img] from the previous owner. It cost me an extra $150.00 to have the body shop that did the Speed Liner spray in liner grind it off [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blush.gif[/img].
I think Line-X would probably spray it, but I'd be surprised if they'd guarantee the work with the way the old stuff is cracking and chipping. Don't quote me on that. I know I wouldn't guarantee it. Maybe they won't spray anything they can't guarantee. Anyway, I'll run it over to them this week and get their opinion. Perhaps they can strip it off for an extra fee. Otherwise, I'm not messing with it. I'll either slap in a drop-in, or just learn to live with the way it looks. Thanks for your input.
Words to the wise - If you're considering a bedliner, and you expect to keep your truck for a while, don't use a
do-it-yourself roll-on kit. Pay the money and have it done right. I didn't have that option. You do.
Roy if you are getting the bed re-sprayed the paint under the bed liner will not matter, However if you pay for mine to be Line-xed I will grind the old one out for you. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img]

Careful what you wish for. After all your effort, I may actually come out ahead. All kidding aside, I'll probably just go with a Protecta bed mat, and cut a hole for the gooseneck. Don't know how well it's going to fit with that steel plate across the bed. Here's a link if you're interested:
There are several ways to remove it, use one or several of these methods:
1. Hammer and chisel or air chisel.
2. Angle grinder with a knotted wire cup brush.
3. Cut 1 foot squares in the bedliner and then use a 4,000 psi or higher pressure washer.
4. Induction tool. Heats only the metal, the metal melts the bedliner, the bedliner peels out. But, it's not as easy as it sounds and it STINKS.
5. Liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitro at -350 degrees freezes the bedliner then you "break it up" with something.

not sure how it would work in this situation, but i have used it before to remove rubber sound deadning pieces from cars "factory type" Just go to baskin robins or local icecream store, and get some dried ice. lay it on there and let it freeze the liner, than hit it with a hammer, should break right out with no damage to the bed
