Hi im Eric and am new to this message board,
Ive recently bought a 2001 silver clearcoat metalic F-150 supercab XLT and i dont want anything to happen to the bed of my nice new truck.
So ive heard of these new spray-in bedliners by Perma-Tech that are called Perma-Glow they susposedly glow in the dark for up to 10 hours well im 17 years old and want to add some cool stuff to my truck i was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with any of these glow in the dark bedliners.
Yea a couple of my friends give me crap about the ricer mod idea but its just somethin about the glow that i think would be awesome.
the bedliner that i would get is susposedly black during the day but glows blue at night. It would look good in the silver truck. Right now i have the Ford duraliner drop in bedliner and its ok i guess just starting on some small mods and working my way up.
i was surprised when i found out the price of these bedliners the glow in the dark ones range from 1000-1500$ most ricer mods dont cost this much but it would be a sad day when a new F-150 gets lowered and those fat wheels that stick out. (in my opinion anyway, not tryin to offend those that do that stuff).
anyway itll be a long time before i do this just because i have a bedliner, and that the glow-in-the-dark's are too new for me to rush out and get one only to find problems with them later on.
Crank & Chrome, on TV, showed a purple glow-in-the-dark bedliner. They had pictures of the bed at night. I thought it was kind of trippy and VERY different. But I don't really like the purple color. Kind of made the truck sort of sissy looking. I don't know if they have other colors though.
I totally agree with Noma. I still opt for the blackout "look" and I'm now 27. Rhino Bedliners has my thumbs up.
Try sticking 275-45's on 20" rims on one of those honda civics. Those damned ricers. I could blow the doors off any one of them, even with my blower belt disconnected. It's always funny, racing and beating a car that could fit in my bed. LOL

Stay away from glow in the dark liners!! $1500 +, compared to $350 - $450 for a good black spray in. I have talked to a dealer that does these, he said they also lose their glow in a few months to a year. You would end up with a dull bedliner. Go with BLACK! Use yur money for other more usefull things.

Man im so crazy about glowing stuff its ridiculas. If the bedliner glow last for a long time i would consider getting it. Man i have glowing logos, pinstripe, gauges, wheel spinners, wiper nozzles, and fixing to get the interior and the under (truck) neon kits. but if i where you i would just get a regular spray on liner and dont waste your money on something that isnt gonna last that long. get some thing like ground effects or rims with that kind of money.
