How Long Does It Take to LINE-X a Truck Bed?

LINE-X is a spray-on protective coating that is applied to the bed of a truck to protect it from rust, corrosion, and other damage. It can be used on all types of trucks, from small pickups to full-size commercial vehicles. LINE-X is an extremely durable coating that provides excellent protection from the elements and from day-to-day wear and tear.

The process of applying LINE-X to a truck bed typically takes about 1-2 hours. The first step is to clean the bed of the truck thoroughly.

This includes removing any debris or dirt that has accumulated in the bed and also sanding down any existing rust spots. Once the surface has been prepped properly, it’s time to apply the LINE-X product.

The LINE-X product comes in two parts – a base coat and a top coat – which are then mixed together before being sprayed onto the surface of the truck bed. The base coat acts as an adhesive for the top coat, which provides additional protection against corrosion and weathering. It’s important to note that each part of the LINE-X product should be applied according to manufacturer’s instructions in order for it to be effective.

Once applied, Line-X needs time to cure before it can provide full protection against rust, corrosion, and weathering. Generally speaking, it takes 24 hours for Line-X to cure completely; however, this can vary depending on environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity levels at the time of application.

In addition to applying Line-X directly onto a truck bed, some people prefer to have their beds lined with a vinyl or rubber liner first before applying Line-X on top of it. This method provides additional protection against wear and tear while still maintaining some flexibility in terms of design options (i.e., you can choose different colors or patterns for your liner). If you decide to go with this option, you should factor in an additional hour or two for installation time (depending on how large your truck bed is).

In conclusion, it typically takes 1–2 hours to apply Line-X onto a truck bed (not including installation time for any liner material), followed by 24 hours for full curing before full protection is provided against rust, corrosion and weathering damage.
