Bed liner removal

So I ran a search of the forum and came up empty handed, so did a google search and there is a lot of info so I'm posing this to you guys...

The previous owner of my baby put some POS bed liner in it that has chipped in multiple places so consequently I need a new one. Here's the question...

How do I remove a spray in or roll on bed liner? I've seen everything from spraying it with liquid nitrogen and shattering it out (afraid that might brake the metal underneath also), to hammer and chisel, to a grinder and special wheel.

Any recommendations from someone who has done if before? I also have one of the sawzall scraper attachments that might be an option.

Thoughts and experiences requested!!

google "aircraft remover" or "aircraft paint stripper"

you'll need to be very careful with it. it burns your skin, burns your eyes and dissolves most paints and finishes it comes into contact with. I used it on some powder coating a couple of years ago and it worked great.

Maybe if its one of those diy bedliners a commercial size sand blaster will peel it out. But be ready to repaint or put in another bedliner if it does work.

I'd pay a professional place to fix it. The place that sprayed my truck only charged me an extra 50 to strip my tailgate

I know a guy who owned a rhino lining business and he used a inductive heating scraper. As soon as it touched metal it got red hot and scraped the liner right off
