I would like to see color options but durability and the main thing I am looking for.
I would love to learn a great option in white and in dark purple were available?
I know there are dozens now not sure how to separate the best choices from the below average options.

Thanks PG

The best choices are the ones done by a shop, Rhino, Line-X, etc.  It's expensive, but while some of the D.I.Y. coatings hold up well, none of them that I have seen come close to a sprayed in liner, properly prepped by a shop.

White will be (nearly) Impossible to do, due to the nature of the beast it will yellow in (a very short) time.
But also don't forget; that RC is steel, steel rusts! whatever you do it rusts! as soon it comes in contact with oxigen.
therefore they apply paint, not to get it rust free, but to slow down rust.

I'm sure you are aware of the fact that once bed liner is applied that is VERY difficult if not impossible to remove?
that does it also when you (after a certain amount of time) need to repair the rust damage to your now good RC.

In other words, it will be very difficult if not impossible to weld in new pieces when they are rust trough.

just remember that if your goal is to keep that RC for eternity???

good luck to you.

I've used some stuff called "shake and shoot" on my service truck bed.  Applied with a cheapie harbor freight sprayer that has held up well.  That said, it cracks with use and doesn't have nearly the elasticity as line-x or rhino lining.  Maybe some kind of epoxy "spatter" coating would be better as exterior paint... ???

If your set on diy, I recommend monstaliner. I’ve used a lot of brands, duplicolor, rustoleum, etc. and this one yields the best results. The “smart” brand from finish master is also good. I used that stuff on my bed.
