    Looking to use the roll on bedliner stuff to do my rocker panels and along the bottom 10" or so of the bed/wheel wells. Looking for brands that you've used and the pros/cons of each brand.

    Personally I would pay someone to do a spray on application if you want it to last very long.

    Yes, and no.

    If you do it right, with the right materials, it can last a long time. I just sold my Zuk, which I applied a marine grade boat dock liner from tailgate to firewall, over 14 years ago. No, and I mean NO wear, even on the drivers floorboard. I don't remember what it was called, but it was tough. No peeling, flaking, nothing.

    I sanded everything down, not quite to bare metal, and cleaned it with Xyloene (sp), then rolled/brushed it on.

    So, that was the 'no' part. The yes part was, that was a LOT of work, and most people won't spend the time, and take shortcuts. Those jobs don't last. My new ride looks like it has a professionally applied liner, and it looks great. Could be a DIY job, but I doubt it. Crisp lines, and very thick.
