where could i get this procedure done? Meaning - painting the back(compartment) of the pick-up parang rubberized paint to minimize scratches from loading things specially bikes. I inquired here sa may alabang area, it's 12,500 for the whole procedure. Is this expensive or meron pa dyan may mas cheaper? hope you guys can help me out thanks!
i had my pick-up's "loading compartment" (whatever you all it!?) spray painted with SPEED bedliner to protect the paint and the loading compartment. I had it done sa RIDE(4x4 accessories shop in Banawe, in front of Carryboy). It costs 10k and i thought after the procedure(thick paint similiar to hard plastic) it was "paint and forget".
But after a week, loaded my bike and saw a small chip(hanggang metal) on the loading compartment. Called the shop and they told me that it's still covered by the warranty. I went back to Banawe just to have it repaired..but when i got there "dehins na daw valid yung warranty" kasi it chipped all the was dun sa metal part the pick-up and not just the protective material. WTF, i went there for nothing..they just painted the damaged part black to cover the damage.
Bad trip pa, now i found 3 more chips off dun sa compartment..and i thought the "speedliner" was made of kevlar(salesman from RIDE told me!)..FAKE pala! So word of advise to those who want to have a spray-on bedliner on your pick-up..DON"T go to RIDE sa may banawe(Toyota Commonwealth recommends this shop to their customers for bedliner)!!! Beware din of the SPEEDLINER brand for spary-on bedliner they are @#$%!
I think my bedliner was done by zeibart along Timog ave infront of Ozone. Im not sure if they are still open bec it was a long time ago. It never chipped. I use my pickup for construction and I load it with all the stuff like used lumbers with nails, welding machine with steel wheels, tiles, cement etc. Im very satisfied and until now (since 1997) it is still ok.
inquire about rhino lining from tuff coat dinol, used it on both my pickups and they've lasted pretty much till the day i sold my pickups( about 4 years, but it was still ok, use my pick up for loading construction stuff). another pickup i had done by 'ride' here in alabang town center motortown, ok naman, forgot lang the brand used dont think it was speedliner though.
Personally, irregardless of what bedliner you apply, if the load you put in your bed are heavy (metal parts, metal cabinets) and have pointed edges (bikes have pointed edges, metal cabinets have pointed edges) it will still chip off or scrape off the bedliner during loading, transporting or shaking during transit/motion. What I did was purchase a separate rubber matting (the ones that are 1 inch thick and heavy, about 24 inches by 24 inches, it can be puzzled together and can even be cut to your desired bed floor). saves you repainting and will be cheaper (around 600 to 700 per piece, you will need at least 4 pieces). Of course you need a bed cover so it wont get robbed. i got myself a roller-up to cover anything inside the bed aside from the rubber matting.
