This is a new product from Second Skin. I have used several of their products, such as Damplifier sound deading, Spectrum liquid sound deadener, Speaker Tweaker kits, etc. I have never been disappointed, and would easily recommend Damplifier over any other sound deadening product.
I cannot comment on the long term durability, but this was easier to install, and looks better than things like the gallon stuff at Autozone/Walmart. (blue can stuff, duraliner or something) I had this stuff on one of my jeeps, and while it was OK, it peeled and wasnt very durable.
This must cure in 50* or more weather, the entire 48 - 72 hour cure time. Because of this it was kept in my garage for the weekend.
So on to the install.
First, took out the plastic OEM bed liner in the truck:
This is what we are greeted with.
We each grab a sanding block, get the rust out (surface only) and rough up the smooth sides.
Didnt take long, but its an arm workout...
Let me pause here and let you know about the air compressor. I own a 6 gallon tank porter cable air compressor, about 2.5 CFM @ 90 PSI. We started shooting with it, and this was what we got before it ran out of air:
So we wait, shoot the second tank, and get to here:
At this time we talk a minute, and decide to go shoot the bedliner at his house (covered work area, but no heat to combat the "winter" air (35* at night, 70* at day) and then bring it back to my house for cure time.
So we let what is in there dry to touch, then drive the 3 miles to his house, and get one of his compressors going, he decides this guy is the best bet for what we need: US General air compressor. Nice unit for what we needed
