    Having a liner sprayed on my truck bed and one question the guy asked if he removes the bed bolts or not. Some say remove the bolts and it's a better job others at don't let them touch your bed bolts.

    Thoughts

    Never heard of removing bed bolts prior to spraying truck bed liner. And I used to be associated with that industry.

    No...!!! most likely workin ya for more cost..bed liner will spray right around and over the bolts and if you have a problem you can always touch it up..

    I would mask off the bed bolts and any pick up points, but no way would I go through the trouble of removing them.

    Why? Why not go over everything? Polyurea is tenacious material and unless it was applied with improper preparation it will not come off. I drag all manner of heavy stuff over the bedliner-covered bolt heads in my pickup bed and the coating has never come up. For example, it is used in mining because a polyurea-covered dump bed will last longer with rocks dumped in it than will a bare steel bed.

    You guys are overthinking this.

    1. I don't want to fill in a Torx head bolt with the liner material. If ever that bolt needs to come out I'll spend and hour chipping them out.

    2. I have swiveling pick up points...I'd like them to continue swiveling.

    3. It's a more sano look.

    4. It would take all of 10 minutes to mask everything.
