Bed Liner for Running Boards

Anyone ever used SPI Bed Liner on Running Boards? Wondering if it hold up getting walked on in and out of the cab.
 
Over metal and filler I would definitely want a couple coats of epoxy on them 24hrs before the bed liner is applied. The epoxy just ties it all together nicely. Make sure to get the edges coated well-the edges often get overlooked and usually take the most abuse. The bedliner is a really good product. Some are even reducing and applying it smooth-I think this has opened up doors to a lot of different uses with a little creativity. Consider some of the 20's-40's era cars with running boards, I would bet one could even do a two stage application using a stencil if a raised pattern is needed.

Bob, can you tell me a little more about the 20's to 40's ear cars with running boards and raised patterns?

After talking to Barry I believe that on my car I am going to tint the bedliner to match and then reduce to spray it in the engine bay, will kinda have that custom look but be useful.

Im coming up part way on the firewall, but not all the way. I suppose the bedliner would wash off good with a pressure washer so maybe my hesitation of too much in the engine compartment is just being overly cautious? I do like your idea of color tinting the bedliner. On the other hand, if you reduce it, its going to be much smoother. You might really be on to something. Hope you post some pictures!

I have not but I am getting ready to spray a bed out reduced a little for flow hopefully by this weekend. I doubt I get to my own car before spring unfortunately. The reduced stuff just be the black pigment that comes with the kit. Will try and get some pics early next week if I get it all done.

Ok, I am within several days of attempting the SPI Bedliner. I just finished the epoxy. Im a little nervous about exactly what to expect with the Geo Gun I got from SPI.

Easy as cake. If ya just wanna check it out when your all ready to spray, and I recommend this anyway, just test out on a scrap panel. Start one to two turns out on the nozzle and adjust from there, I can't remember where I set the regulator but I believe it says in the tech manual or somewhere on the forums.
