    Any tricks for easily/cleanly removing bedliner?

    PO rolled/sprayed the lower 6-8" of body, and I want to go back to full stock color.

    I've heat-gunned it some and gotten a bit off, but it takes clear coat with it. Next step is a flap disc.

    Just wondering if anyone had a trick to get it done easily.

    On monstaliner instagram they were using citrus strip to remove to bare metal in a video this week. I'm not sure it's possible to only remove monstaliner and being able to leave original paint? Maybe just scuff amd tint new liner closer to original paint.

    If you are sure that it is ML I believe it can be painted over. Might try contacting them. Other way is to use MEK to soften and then either wipe or scrape off. Be cautious MEK is nasty stuff.

    Not sure what the actual product is, but it was rolled on so it has a definite texture. I'll check out the MEK and citrus stripper.

    I'd be okay with it as-is and just painting over it, but it extends past the top of the fender flares (which I want to re-mount). Filth flarn flarn filth.
