Baja Roll on Liner

Post by RickBaja06 »

I finally applied my roll-on-liner this past Sunday.
So far no issues with chipping or lifting off the Poly-Pro Liner.

Let me know what you think.

I used Herculiner, cost about $80.00. The key is that if the bed is cleaned, it will stick to the Poly-Pro plastic bed. If the bed is not clean the Herculiner will not bond. In either case hurculiner was not meant for applictions onto PP plastic. If it chips, just re-apply.

It has been a few weeks now that the roll on liner was applied, and I am happy to report that I have had no issues. The liner is sticking very well to the plastic bed.

What about applying it to the body cladding... That seems like it might be cool.

Ive wondered about doing something like this for a long time, this is just a quick photo shop i did, this is what i would ultimately do to my baja if i ever had to get it repainted.

How well does the roll on liners hold up?

I love the Rino Liner coating I had on my Full Size truck. But it was the hot type and it was really thick and man it was tough and I never was able to scratch or chip any of it off anywhere in years of hauling all kinds of stuff in the bed.

Why did you do this as the Baja has the plastic clad lining? Was yours getting scratched up etc?

How well is the roll on holding up ie bonding to the plastic?

well if you look in here most recent post, which was really recent, he says its bonded great and hes having no issues! sounds like a cool thing to try out. I can imagine its nice not having everything sliding around back there on that slick plastic has got to be nice.

Exactly! My Baja is black, so I think it would work well. And, the cladding is getting door-dinged, the rear bumper has a nice big scratch in it... One way to cover all that up!

I did look and note what he stated.

However, a month old job does not a long term test make. In less than a month it has not gone through much either in loads or in climatic temperature changes.

I had my hot liner in for 10 years. Never came loose. Never flaked or chipped etc. That included filling the bed with 3000 lbs of broken concrete, loading bricks, motorcycles, Large dogs, oak firewood, over and over.

I would like to hear from him over time to see if he has any issues over a year or more. One month after install is not much of a test to base whether or not it has bonded well or not.

It would be nice to not be so slippery back there. Not sure if the wife would allow me to put any liner on her Baja as she is one of those rare owners who loves all things factory and hates all things aftermarket.

If it does bond well it may be a very good option though.
