Remove plastic tailgate liner/bed rail caps, spray bed liner instead

I want to remove the flimsy plastic bed liner from my tailgate and spray bed liner on the metal and keep the handle, etc. Anyone does this or can give me advice?

Secondly, I want to either remove the bed rail caps and spray bed liner over the edges. Does anyone know if there are extra unsightly holes underneath the bed rail caps or can I take them off and just bed liner over the edge?

If the above doesn't work, I will just line-x the bed rail caps on the bed and tailgate as I think black would look better than baby crap brown...

I believe there are holes, I had my truck done last week the line-x guy strongly recommended to leave the rails. So I did, I am happy with it, I look at it this way If a rail cap gets damaged it will be easier to replace than actual bed damage.

I know on my 06 it has holes underneath the bed caps, I'm going to weld them shut and then linex it.

Yes there are hole, the caps have little clips just like the tailgate caps and bumper caps have. If you get a long pair of needle nose pliers and get under the truck and reach up there you can squeeze the clips and push out the caps to keep from breaking the clips and re use the caps if you want. Otherwise you'll have to weld them shut

On one of my old trucks they laid some sort of tape down over some small holes in my bed and then sprayed over it and its like they were never there. I guess it would all depend on how many holes there are and how thick the liner will be. Whenever I spray my bed I plan on just leaving the caps but losing the pole on the tailgate, I hate sliding stuff over it.
