I am looking to bedline the lower trim of my 94 XLT, I removed all the side moldings and fender skirts etc and I plan on filling in those holes with either bondo or the black plastic clip, but it still feels empty. So, I was considering bedliner the bottom few inches and am looking for a reccomendation of what bed liner to use? I saw some posts about spray on bed liner and thought that looked like the easiest way to make it look good but I wasn't sure of the quality of it.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

You mean using something like herculiner on the rocker panels & other stuff.. Alot of members have done that.. I hope on doing it soon.. They make a roll on and sprayable type of bed liner..

I used Bondo bedliner kit, it worked great and has held up for a year with no chipped out spots....its pretty tough .it went on easy,just prep the paint by scuffing it lightly with a scotch-brite pad or something similiar.

from my experience the spray can stuff isnt near as durable as the roll-on. IMHO Herculiner is the best out there as a roll-on.
