herculiner the entire truck??

i have a 96 dually ext cab 4x4 auto that has some cab damage and a handful of scratches... i do not think it is work spending the money on a nice paint job....so why not bed line the entire thing?? i know it would fade eventually...but it would help with protecting from rust and also scratches.

let me know what you think.... I'm thinking pretty hard about this one.

If you did, again i wouldnt advise it, I would have it done professionally or you may end up with a big mess on your hands. But hwatever floats your boat, I prefer nice two tones.

if you can do all the work yourself its really not that bad. im going to paint mine myself and my materials will be mostly just sand paper, primer and paint. its time consuming as all hell but its worth the effort
