Can I color the bedliner to exactly match my truck bed?
I’ve seen truck bedliners which match the truck color. Can SL&C brand coatings be sprayed the same as my truck?
Yes… You can use our Color Match Bedliner Kit to match your current truck color to save money by providing your own locally purchased automotive pigments. If you would like us to supply the pigments, you would select the Exact Color Match option from our Colored Truck Bedliner kit. The automotive pigments will be mixed with our clear bedliner top coat, and will provide as close an exact match to your existing color as possible.
When purchasing pigments yourself, you can usually purchase from your local automotive finishes suppler. Simply ask for “pigments without binder” as would be used with their automotive paint. The amount of pigment required will be about 1/2 as much as would be used for an equal amount of their paint. This is compared to the clear bedliner included with your kit.
The end result is to provide true truck bedliner protection with an almost exact color as your vehicle. This includes any metallic effects, etc. If you want even more of an exact color, you can topcoat with automotive paint after the bedliner cures. The topcoat provides additional UV color stability, and a fully exact match.
NOTE: Many individuals find that a truck bedliner in a very close match without metallic effects is more than suitable. You can also choose the same Color Match kit, and supply and oil-based alkyd paint as a color tint. This allows you to select from the thousands of colors from your local paint supplier. You will use more of this color tint, but the cost per quart is far less.
