My 2 trucks 49 and 51 3100 have running boards which i painted top and bottom with bed liner. If you were to sand/wire brush the frame, the fenders you could paint/spray with bed liner to protect from rust FWIW Bill

Is bed liner better than something like 3M rubberized undercoating?

Definitely. The stuff is pretty durable. The same as any paint or undercoating, what you put it on has to be CLEAN, and scuffed so the product sticks.

Like 49 3100, my plan is to use spray-on bedliner for the running boards. They will be blasted and primered with epoxy first. Also considering it for the underside of the fenders to protect from rock chips.

In thinking more about the undercoating, I would like to see what you think about:

1. If the truck originally came from the factory without it, do I really want to do it?

2. It seems that the textured finish of bedliner or rubberized undercoating would tend to hold mud and dirt, whereas a slick surface not so much.

Thanks for your opinions

....my .02
On both my 37 (22 years ago) and my 52 panel, after blasting the chassis I painted with gloss black. I'm not a purist and no one see's it. I don't drive them on dirt roads, at least not very often, and its amazing how slick and clean they are when i slide under them. (and I drive them....drove the panel to homecoming and K.C.) the 37 has been a little of everywhere.
Even when working on them I can take a rag and it wipes off nice and clean.
....like i said, just my .02.

The 2-part urethane bedliner can be applied textured or smooth. The shop I talked with said it was a matter of air pressure adjustment on the spray gun. When I had one of my fiberglass running boards on my F250 repaired and new bedliner applied, they did the top textured and the underside of the front end smooth where it gets peppered with gravel.

My panel truck has a generous layer of undercoat, presumably installed by the dealer when new. Every place there is undercoat, the underlying components are like new.
