The pickup. This type of vehicle has long been used not only for transporting loads on the farm or construction site. A big pickup truck is a trend that is not only making many friends in the US. Pickups have long been owned by "non-craftsmen" or "non-farmers". Whether investment banker or manager, pickups are becoming more and more popular. But it doesn't always have to be the big American Dodge Ram or Ford F-150 pickup, offshoots of the pickup can also be found in the form of a Nissan Navara, VW Amarok or the Mercedes X-Class. But modern pickups still have one thing in common with their predecessors. They offer a lot of loading space, which can be used to transport all kinds of goods. And let's be honest, if you have a loading area, you also use the loading area! What used to be a wooden platform on the pickup, where cargo was simply thrown on, is now often a painted surface or optically high-quality and elegant plastic. Even rare wood can be seen more and more often. If bulky cargo is simply thrown on it, unsightly scratches and flaws are quickly the result. In order to prevent these scratches and quirks, the tuning and supplier scene has a solution at hand. The protection of the loading area!
with paint or rubber against scratches
Who wants to protect the back of his pickup against scratches and quirks, that said, there are many opportunities in the market today for this problem. So different the many models of pickups in the vehicle market, as different as the means and possibilities for loading area protection. First, it should be distinguished whether the loading area with paints or a tub to be protected. The solution by means of a tub is the simplest conceivable. On the cargo bed is simply placed a tub, which protects the actual surface of a pickup. Most of these tubs are made of rubber. But you can reduce the loading area and, moreover, often break quickly. More professional is the solution with a special paint to protect the cargo area. There are different possibilities here. From simple spray paint over powder coating to a particularly thick 2 component coating. Important in the selection is certainly the way in which the loading area is used. A rubber mat may not look nice at first glance, but it's easy to clean and quick to remove. Coatings with paint not only protect the vehicle, they can also produce a visual enhancement.
Loading surface coating - defy the weather
A loading surface coating for a pickup is not only useful to avoid scratches or quirks. Environmental influences can also be kept away from the vehicle's loading area. The sun, winter and storms have also put a lot of strain on a pickup truck bed over the years. An additional coating on the loading area sensibly increases protection against UV rays and weather damage to the vehicle. And a coating can easily be upgraded or renewed, while the base area is difficult and tedious. PS. By the way, there is with the FOLIATEC Hard Rock Liner a variant with which the entire body receives the incomparable rhinoceros / raptor skin. And other manufacturers have discovered that too. Reason enough that we have devoted ourselves to the topic in more detail and also found tutorials. There is more to it HERE.
