I've asked this before, but has anyone had the spray-in bedliner TSB performed on their truck due to discoloration? If so, how did it turn out? Can you post "after" pictures of it? Was it worth doing? I'm struggling with this issue because my liner is very light gray and looks like total dogsh*t but at the same time I have a tonneau cover on it that stays in place most of the time.

I hate the way it presently looks as I'm pretty damn anal about that kind of thing but I don't want to make the situation worse if the TSB fix is just a "Band-Aid' kind of fix. If it looks great and is durable, then I'll do it. My warranty expires in July, so I've got time to decide. Any help or insight from you guys would be greatly appreciated!

Hey.....what the hell happened to the "cheers" smiley?!? Don't tell me it fell victim to some a$$hole crying about political incorrectness! Or worse yet, did someone's wife catch them "drinking" in the forum? Oh well, it's kisses then......:kiss:

I am going to the dealer Monday for a second leaking exhaust manifold. While there I'll have them look into this.

Nope, it's still around. :cheers:

I had it done when the TSB first came out.... like 2 years ago. They had my truck 3 days. They sent it out to a third party body shop. I do know there was a fresh coat of "paint" or whatever it is. Because there was a very small imprint of a shoe in mine. Otherwise turned out great. After some thinking about why this was caused, I noticed the worst spots where in the corners. After having my truck washed on day, I looked in the bed and saw soap which did not get washed out sitting in the same area as the light gray spots. So i asked the service manager if soap could be the culprit. He said I wasn't the first to bring that to his attention. But he had no idea. Since I have had it done, no discoloration at all. So YES I would recommend getting it done.

Thanks for the info! I'd like to get quite a few members' feedback just to get somewhat of an average. Thanks!

I had it done about a month ago. It looks like a brand new bed. I can get pictures when it is light out. But I would definitely recommend it. They had my truck for two days. The dealership also owns a Chevy dealer in the area and my understanding is that it was done at the Chevrolet body shop. I wish that I had gotten some before pictures.

I thought I would mention that in the next several months, LINE-X will have a new PATENTED product called ReNew that will refresh ANY brand of bedliner. ReNew includes the use of LINE-X Xtra. Xtra resists fading and loss of gloss, is more scratch and stain resistant, and contains a Dupont Kevlar micro pulp for extreme durability. As a bonus, Xtra is maintenance free, just wash it off. ReNew can be applied in less than 4 hours.

I had mine done per the TSB ay my Nissan Dealer last November. The black is now black again and looks good in my opinion. The only gripe I have is there were a couple runs in the stuff they sprayed on on the bed sidewalls that looks like poop, but that is an execution problem from the shop.

I would venture a guess that is no more or no less durable that the original finish. No discolorations since it was done. Sorry...no pics here as there is about an inch of ice in the bed and no warm garage for the beast to sleep in.

I wouldn't hesitate to have it done, but be prepared to be out of your truck for 3 days. I pushed them to give me a rental. Ended up with a Dodge Ram as I need a truck for work everyday. They happily obliged with no expense to me whatsoever.

Thanks so far to the guys posting on here! I'm taking my truck in next week now and the service rep has yet to hear back from the district rep as to what they're going to do. Either way, I can't get over how bad it looks presently, so I'm having some sort of repair done.

Hey Titangasm, post some more info on the Line-X product you mentioned. A lot of guys would probably be interested in that if their liner looks bad and they're out of warranty. At the very least, I'll suggest it to the dealer as an alternative to the TSB. Line-X of Pittsburgh is very close to me. Thanks again fellas!:cheers:

Mine has the bubble issue plus it's looking chalky. I'm out of work for a while, so I will give the dealer a call in about a week to take it in for TSB.

The ReNew product will be introduced to LINE-X dealers at the LINE-X third annual global dealer conference on February 15 which I will be attending. I'll be happy to report back to the forum regarding ReNew after that date.

The Nissan TSB process is pretty interesting reading. Basically, they melt black silica on the bedliner. The bed actually has to bake in an oven. I've never seen it, sure would like to. I wonder if it becomes slippery?

I had the same concern that the surface would become slippery before I sent mine in. I have to say that it initially seemed to slippery, but after a month or two and a couple washings, you really can't tell the difference from the factory finish.

I'm no chemical engineer, but it seemed like there were some oils that were on top of the bedliner from exposure to the heat. Again, a month or two later and things are back to normal.
