    Hi, I have an old 4runner that I love to death. Both heads were replaced a year ago, and she runs like a dream, but the outer body leaves a lot to be desired.

    It's mostly red with a black hood, and some of the red is more of a pink, as it's lost its clear-coat. It also has a large dent in the back panel that would cost tons to repair since it's all one piece, and would need repaired before a body shop would paint it. Since it has upwards of 240k miles on it I'm not wanting to put a few grand in it. When it dies I'll just get a third gen runner, so I'm not looking for input as to whether I should do it or not. I'll only be improving its look, I guarantee it. Yes it'll hold dirt, yes it'll weigh more than paint, yes it'll be dull. I just want to know from someone who has done it, how many gallons it took to cover the entire body, or if anyone has estimations.

    TL;DR: My truck is ugly and dented. I am going to put bed liner on the entire body. How much will I need to do the job, in gallons? 1995 Runner.

    Probably a gallon. I used little less to paint mine white. Only used i think 2 cans of Rustoleum truck bed liner to do the Stripe on the bottom. How ever you do it or whatever product you use, make sure you can spray it and go slow with many layers . You dont want to roll on bed liner unless you can lay everything flat.

    Okay, thank you! Did you do white on top black in bottom? That's what I'd like to do. Does the roll-on drip?

    White is Rustoleum Paint. Bottom us Rustoleum truck bed liner. Roll on is hard to get to lay flat. Often you will roll on a vertical surface and it will run if your not careful. Most people use for there beds so they often dont care about drips or runs. But for side of a truck id assume you'd want it as flat as possible.

    Also you want to do some prep work, Might want to take some sand paper like 1000 Grit and rough up the clear coat(if there is any left) or take the clear completely off. Will help the truck bed liner stick better. You dont have to do this but it will help, Ive seen some truck bed liners get sprayed right on to clear coat and sticks.

    Also your dents on the rear can be pushed back out from the inside of the truck. Just use a hammer and 2x4.

    Oh, gotcha, it looks good! I like the Tacoma front end on yours. And yes I was planning on sanding everything to get it to stick better, if you put the liner on the bumpers would it stick or should I sand and or prime them? I couldn't find your progress pics..

    Would the dent trick still work if it has some rust on it? I haven't touched it because of that. I don't want to make holes.

    I put the liner right over the steel bumpers. Just made sure it was clean and oil free. The Truck bed liner will stick better then normal paint.

    Some rust might fall out... you can always use fiberglass or bondo to patch it. Not enough rust from what i can see that you couldn't tap it back out. Might be bend rust now but could be straight rust after...lol

    Okay awesome I was hoping I could just
    put it right on them haha. And that's true, I could just patch it, I forget you can do that.
    Thanks so much for your help!

    I looked at these. Cool stuff. I wanted to try it but Im a Rustoleum fan and it was easy to get too... FYI if you go with this there FAQ said

    Can Durabak™ be sprayed? Yes, with most conventional spray equipment but it requires a large tip (1/4") and should be thinned with Xylene approximately 10%

    So maybe something you want to look into.


    Also I like there main page has FJ40s on it :)

    Oh rustoleum would definitely be easier. All depends what you want and how much effort you want to out into it really
