You don't need $250K for a franchise. I certainly did not have (or need) $250K for my franchise.

8 mils of anything is not going work as an adequate spray-on bedliner, at least not for people who use their truck like a truck. In addition, I don't think any of my customers would want a paint protection film (PPF) as a truck bedliner. Holy Smoke, that cracks me up Name:  smilielol.gif

I hate to tell you, but Spray-Liner is not the first to come out with a clear bedliner. CrystaLiner has had one for many years and to be quite honest, it looks absolutely horrible! That's probably why you will have a hard time finding a dealer.

OK, I'm done...Have a nice day!

Another Line-X - Gone - Bullet Liner Dealers jumps to SLC

Platinum is not for everyone, it's formulated for extreme duty. If you don't use your truck bed in that way, then Premium is fine.
LINE-X LOST ANOTHER DEALER TO SPRAY-LINING & COATINGS. Yup, SLC duplicates brands like Line-X. Yes, Bullet Liner is owned by Claudio Burton who started & sold Line-X. Uh Huh, that brand is known for quality. Yes-er-ee, Bullet & SLC reps know simple methods for competing dealers paying premiums for use of a name that's not theirs. We know that a large % of branded dealerships are frustrated on their regulations & expenses or just amortizing that big fee. We also know & respect that's how franchises works, right? If you've managed to pay of your investment & succeed at Line-X you are in the minority. The name is good, the polyureas are good, equipment, etc are fine. Branding is not a bad thing. Spray-Lining & Coatings administration simply produces same & higher spec polyurea at much lower prices & distributes Graco & PMC for less $ than any brand. So SLC dealers can provide more bedliner, i.e. thicker is better, for much less retail. That's all.

JEFFBOY, I know you try really really hard, but you're information is never accurate.

For example, the Burtin's do NOT own Bullet Liner. It was sold to Accella Performance Materials in September of 2015.

You said, "If you've managed to pay of your investment & succeed at Line-X you are in the minority."
What information do you have to support that statement?

You said, "...simply produces same & higher spec polyurea at much lower prices."
What information do you have to support that statement?

It may sound stupid to add a rubber mat to the Line-X, but if you put boulders, concrete blocks, and firewood into the bed as I tend to do, it adds an extra layer of protection.
Mine came to me with a new Line-X liner by PO, I found it hard on knees so I did the rubber mat for that reason alone, it was cheap on sale at TSC. Mine has a cover anyway.

Later I was given a 6.5 foot Chevy drop in to get rid of, I trimmed sides and such and it lays on top of the rubber for easy sliding ... I would not have paid for it but for free .... and a few minutes with a sawzall ... why not.

I made a net same reason but that wooden wall looks A-OK and has stood the test of time.

Best Spray-in Liner for Full Jeep or truck Exterior

Many jeep and truck owners, even boat owners are wanting bedliner applied to exterior parts or full exterior. I now operate zone 3, SLC distributor for polyurea. On Line-x hoax via spray-lining owner team, I allowed James Bell to post through me 4/2015. Many folks who want their whole vehicle coated find conflicting info. Brands like Line-X or Rhino are good quality but most applicators, i.e. dealers are inexperienced. An average full sized jeep or truck, exterior and interior should be well under $3600. DIY kits are similar (spray-rig is not a high pressure, heated fusion pump so it takes over 15 min to dry) = under $1,000.

Good afternoon!

If you don't mind, I'll comment on a couple of points. I won't comment on Rhino, but I will comment on LINE-X.

Experience:
You mentioned that LINE-X dealers are inexperienced. LINE-X has been around for about 30 years. In addition, LINE-X dealers are franchised and are required to have Corporate taught hands-on training prior to operating a store. In addition, LINE-X offers some sort of continuing education training every year. Personally, I have about 14 years of experience that includes advanced training conducted by SSPC only for LINE-X dealers.

Exterior Applications:
I've had to keep a waiting list for exterior applications since 2012; can't get them done fast enough! Nice pictures, but you only show black. We can apply practically any color. We use aromatics, aliphatics, thin coat products, thick coat, fast gel time, slow gel time products, etc. Obviously, the price will vary depending on the product.
