Rhino-lining

I have a buddy who is about to rhino line the entire body of his unimog. Its a good idea since it will cover up and seal all of the BAD surface rust and blemishes that his truck has.
Was wondering if anyone has every seen a Blazer completely Rhino-lined?

Re: Rhino-lining

Hold that thought for a few months and I'll be able to show you pics! We just got a Rhino Linings dealer here and when I get my Blazer's body done, it's going to have the entire tub from the bottom of the dash right through to the tailgate and the entire underside sprayed in Rhino Liner. Hopefully, once done, rust will be a thing of the past for many, many, many years to come!

Re: Rhino-lining

I saw a Toyota with the body Rhino-lined. It seemed strange at first due to the texture and flatness of the color but after awhile I started to like it. I guess scratches and rock chips would be easy to fix. Just throw a new layer over them and they'd look good as new.

Re: Rhino-lining

Well, that's the point of the lining inside and out. My hope is that if the complete underside up to the bottom of the rocker panels and the entire interior is lined, then the bottom of the entire body will be covered in one, continuous rubberized liner that will be water/air tight. Remember though, that's just the plan. I'm sure rust will eventually find it's way in again but at least it'll have a long battle ahead of it!

Re: Rhino-lining

I had my '80 Jimmy done about two years ago. The product is good. The most important thing to do is look at some trucks the place that is doing yours has done. This was my mistake. The shop that did mine, "Rhino-Linings in Marietta,GA just past the Big Chicken" gave me a higher price when I got there than they did over the phone. I had them do it anyway and they did a terible job. It took them three tries to get it close. When I tried to call the HQ I got a tellamarketer who said "All locations are independently owned. Sorry, we can't help you." So much for customer service. Next time I will use Duraback. Jim.

Re: Rhino-lining

I found the Dupli-Color roll-on type bedliner at Wal-Mart for $40 a gallon. Each gallon covers 80-100 sq. ft. I plan do put this in the entire interior of my '74 K5. I had an estimate done on the bed of my Z71 and it would have been about $450 for the Rhino spray in type, so I can only imagine what it would cost to do an entire interior.

Re: Rhino-lining

Having talked to a number of Rhino Linings dealers, figure about $5.50 per sq ft. My Rhino Lining on '88 K1500 has been on close to ten years and remains solid. I've spoken to others who have had problems with the lining lifting/peeling. I do plan to line the entire tub of my Blazer when finances allow.
