How do yall bedline your rockers?

I used herc on my 84 and I couldn't get a real crisp line.

I'm noting that my OBS is a bit different in terms of body lines so I want the product to look good.

I saw a red and black rc, that a member here has I believe that looked dang sharp. Just hoping to get a line on products that can help me get a good line. Thus far I've got the option of using painters tape like I did before and then just pulling it before it dries, or using wire edge tape which seems a bit harder to use.

Lastly the plan is to use raptor.

If someone feels like posting up their lined rockers that would be superb!

I used raptor and mine turned out great in my opinion. I used the green painters tape it is much better than the blue.





Its pretty tough to get a straight line but just peel the tape off right after you spray the second coat and you're good to go.

That first ford is damn sexy. My buddy has a white truck and I'm gonna show him those pics we were talking about this the other day.

The only issue is that I'm driving 90 miles, west, or north to get a linex dealer. I live in the sticks.

Thank you very much it's very time consuming but raptor is a great and has held up since June and I drive gravel a few times a week with. I chips yet. I don't recommend line-x I was quoted like $500 to do it. I only have like 150 into mine including tape, gun, and plastic assuming you have a compressor.

I can post pics of the process if your interested.

It took me like 8 hours with all the prep and spraying. It only takes patience and a little common sense

Should be a shutz gun included in the raptor kit( basically shake the cartridge, hook it to the gun, hook the gun to a compressor, test the pattern/texture of the spray on some non wanted material and then shoot.) Goes for around $100 and the product covers enough to do a truck bed so more than enough to do the rockers and fenders.

Strokin,

If you could do indeed post pics I would really very much appreciate it. I've reviewed vids and like I said did my own on another truck with roll on herc, but I couldn't get crisp lines on my bull nose. Harder lines to copy but I just want to make sure I keep the lines even across and especially the hard parts is making corners. So would appreciate any info you could give on that.

When I did my herc I just rolled it directly on the paint. Mind you it was freshly painted and 100+ degrees outside. Its been like 5 months now and no issues with it falling off, still hard as heck.

However, it would be a prudent decision to sand it for better gripping.

You want to know the good thing about not having a bed liner an using it for a work truck? Your bed gets scratched to hell so you have no sanding work to do.
