I've been looking into getting a permanent bed liner, but not the plastic ones. I've seen do-it-yourself kits around like the one in the picture. Would this just make it come out crappy like the do-it-yourself window tinting? Would I be better off spending more money at a body shop?

well I think that stuff works pretty good to, I had a profesional RINO Lining job done on my pickup and you can drive a sled with a picked track in the box and it doesnt leave a mark and iv had it for 6 yrs now..But I think the do it yourself stuff works to..I guess iv never tried it but iv seen it done..

I'm looking at getting one of the DIY kits for my truck as well. I've heard good things about them. Here's some other links:

I've always been kinda scared of the do-it-yourself kinda things that are supposed to be of like kind & quality.... would be really interested to know how it stood up if you do it... I've had all of mine done professionally... Lots of oilfield around here,... lotsa trucks, and also lotsa competition for the spray in liners,... so prices are reasonable. Let us know how it goes....

if you wanna do it yourself dont be scared to buy a gallon and out 3 or 4 coats on the only difference between a do-it-yourself kit and a professional job is one is sprayed on evenly and the do it yourself one is rolled on with a paint roller pretty much,and also most professionals will tape off the sides of your bed and spray the rails and a few inches down the bed just for adding protection..you could do the same with the kit but it just doesnt look the same..i used durabak coating on the underside of my fiberglass jeep body and after a few years of use it only chipped off where my tires rubbed when the suspension articulated offroading..a gallon of that cost me $109.95 and for that price it came with a roller[:D]

For $35 give it a try. I was going to go with the Hurculiner but found a shop locally that would do a spray in for $350 and warranty it for the life of the truck. I'm generally kinda hard on things so I decided to go that way. I think the DYI kits would work fine though.
