Mine is stripped out pending spray in deadener, and a new liner. Not leaving it out. Besides looks I think it will be too loud. I can snap a pic of it mostly stripped out including the jute. I'd at least do some sort of spray in headliner if you go this route... but that's just me.Awesome--exactly what I was wanting! Any big downside to ditching it? Seems kinda surprising that so many spend lots of time and money to replace theirs when the rest of the rig is pretty stripped.
Mine is completely out and all the zute or whatever that stuff is, is gone as well. It's loud when it rains, not to mention super hot when it's sunny out. I'm planning on using the second skin stuff. I put damplifier on my FJ55 roof followed by spectrum from second skin. It's held up well so far. Put it in about six months ago. I'll probably just put spectrum in the 60 and save the damplifier for the floor.So do ya'll think it will be loud if I remove it?
Do ya'll not think that spray on sound deadening(maybe the regular ole sheet stuff as well?) will be quiet enough?
The second skin stuff is soft, not so soft that you can pick it off, but it definitely doesn't feel like bedliner or paint. IDK if it would be wise to use it in place of a bedliner. If you could find a bed liner without the rubber bits, that would be best in my opinion. I brushed mine on and it doesn't level at all. The stuff is pretty thick, so if you want a smooth texture then I'd spray. The texture would be smooth, but I used a fat ass brush to put it on so there are plenty of texture lines. As for toughness, I don't think it'd hold up to any gouging the way that bedliner is meant to. I think the stuff was meant to be used on the interior like door panels, under carpeting etc (event though they do say you can use it on the outside)Did you spray or brush it on? How is the texture? I'd like to do the entire inside(and underside really) with it or Lizardskin or something to that effect; normal bedliner seems to rough to clean easily. How tough is the Secondskin?
