Okay "spray bedliner" must be something totally different from what I had in mind, as yours just looks like regular paint to me. To me, bedliner is the spray-in cargo bed liner from LineX that I had put in my Frontier. It's rough/gritty, looks like crap when dirty, and nearly impossible to get clean. But yours looks more like a smooth satin paint. What makes it bedliner?

It's Rustoleum spray can Truck Bed Liner. It's not obvious in the pictures, but it's definitely not smooth and it's also a pain to clean. I'd say it's probably a much finer grit than professional Line-x. For $6/can though, it's great stuff! I used it for the entire bed on my Sierra. They also make roll on kind that is a lot grittier and looks more like Line-X/Rhino.

Ah okay, thanks! Maybe I'll pick up a can and test it on something laying around to see what it looks like. I def don't want to make things harder to clean, but I could use it on potentially slippery step surfaces like the little plastic steps at the rear bumper corners.

I currently got done a few weeks back using the new McKess 37 trim restorer. Amazing product. Does not run in rain or washes. Several weeks have passed and it still looks like the day I applied it.

Solution Finish has just released their new GREY trim restorer also...

Eastwood Plastic Resurfacer is the way to go in my opinion. I applied back in April of this year and it still looks the same as when I painted it.

Here are some photos of when I did it on this post

Get some Black Magic Tire Foam , Costco , ( three cans tire / plus one can rim cleaner ). Previously they had Simoniz....not the same. I noticed that in the directions , on the Black Magic can ...quote: can also be used on wet tires and other rubber surfaces ( ie bumpers. mud flaps, trim). Use a wet sponge , spray on sponge , wipe all trim , wait a few minutes or rub it in a bit . Great stuff , bugs will not stick to front , mud seems to wash away with just water next time you have to clean the xterra.

Product is solid. Trim still looked like new before I traded it last November.
