Bed liner paint

I'm trying to find a bed liner paint that is a desert sand with a flat sheen. I prefer it to be a roll on. Any companies they yall suggest?

Re: Bed liner paint

Monstaliner will be your best bet for job but may not be able to find a flat finish. To do that you'd probably have to spray paint over the bedliner.

Re: Bed liner paint

get a sample from monstaliner too -- I do have a sample of their color desert sand -- it's pretty flat as in not shiny -- it does have a texture when applied which can be minimized with a roller

Re: Bed liner paint

Can Monstaliner be applied smooth or does it have to have a texture?

Pretty sure all bedliners will always have a texture, if you want smooth you're going to have to shoot paint.

I guess but seems like a lot of work for little benefit. If you sand it you'll still have to spray something on top to make it smooth. Honestly just plastidip or shot paint it if you want the flat/matte look.
