poly prevention

So I was wondering if a spray in bedliner would be sufficient protection against poly. I know its been discussed here before but I dont think we ever came to a decision or any expiriements. I ask because I would like to use the front 19 gallon OBS tank for WVO in addition to the bed tank, I would spray the new one before installation. They are only $120 new iirc. Thoughts?

I think it would because co-workers truck bed has the Line-X pulling away (not enough prep is my guess) and its almost as thick as my plastic bed liner. You could always find an aluminum racing tank on craigslist and strap it to the frame.

My gut says no....

But it's worth a call to the spray tech to get his take on it.

i doubt the spray teck sould know about wvo and poly. and i certainly dont want it peeling away.

ill try the race tank idea, the ones we always used were steel, but its worth trying to locate an aluminmum one if the price is fair...

Why not go with a midships tank from a late model SD?? They are plastic so no poly and fit nicely under an OBS...
