You can buy it in a spray can but it is kind of thin. If your just covering some existing bed liner it should work ok.

Have you found cans with a colour other than black? Sorry I should have clarified, we want green.

Thank you Panoz77, Donna and Greg. I will definitely be trying the coke next summer. For this summer I am just getting it water tight and towable. There will be a few quick fixes, but I am trying to make sure that they are easily un-doable when I am ready to do it right. I thought I did post a photo, but I must have done something wrong. I will try again.

WalMart sells RustOleum Bedliner Black color by the spray can (for less than $10 a can) and by the gallon for only about $50. That is considerably less than the Rhinoliner. I am looking into seeing if they can order it in other than Black (I would like a tan color). If that's the case, then you can't beat it since it would be great to know I can have plenty extra for periodic touch up work. I'll chime in once I find out.

Don't get the spray on type, get the roll-on type, the roll on type is thicker and rolling it on is very easy. It is a messy job and a spray can would make it even worse, IMO

I will be watching to see what answer you get, you never know if the answer will be the same in Canada, but possibly! We have tried a few places to see if they have 1/2 gallons with no luck, but were looking at the roll on type, not the spray on. We want spray on though for the front for ease & our budget. And at this point $100+ for roll on for a tiny area that is colour matched isn't financially doable. I'm not overly concerned if we need to repaint in the future. It would be fantastic to find coloured spray on!

I personally will be using the roll on since Brad's (he did his Boler in the fire truck red Bedliner) advice was to give it at least 3 coats and a fourth would have been perfect. He said to plan about a gallon per coat so the spray cans won't be practical for us. Thing is they sell the Rustoleum in the spray can in Tan and Black and Tan is the exact color I am interested in, so I am hoping they will respond that they sell it by the gallon in Tan. With it being $48 a gallon at Walmart vs. $150 per gallon for Rhino liner. I'll report back as soon as I hear back from them.

The sell it by the quart and by the gallon only. Autozone also carries it and it is about the same price as walmart. A quart is less than $20.

And yes 3 coats is about what you need for complete coverage depending on how thick you apply it each time.

Just heard back from Rustoleum and here's a cut and paste:
_________
Thank you for contacting Rust-Oleum Product Support

Unfortunately, Black is the only color that is offered in gallon sized containers. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused you.

Don't use the spray can, the roll on stuff is thicker and easier to control, IMO. I think in the end the spray cans will cost you much more than a gallon if you are covering the whole thing. Just something to consider.

Thanks, but we are just doing a small rock guard, we have already done other areas with roll on rhino liner (new floor boards after fibreglassing in both under Lino and as undercoat).

As I mentioned earlier I don't need a whole gallon & would rather just spray on a few cans for now, its okay if it only lasts a season or two, as in future we will repaint the rockguard with a colour matched version.

Hey guys, sorry for any confusion but I meant to say I was looking into other colors in the gallon size. You can definitely get the can in TAN color!
I just needed 3 or 4 gallons for the whole thing so I wasn't interested in a can, but I can see there are instances where the can has utility.

RustOleum.com

Good luck!

No Paul, I'm sorry, I was actually interested in the answer for the gallon size at Walmart....to clarify better since I guess i was vague....originally we were going to color match the rock guard even if we had to get gallon size of Rhinoliner, but on discussing we (hubby & I) decided that we would just do black in the can. Because another $100 for just a small rock guard is a waste, if we only use a little bit....so when I heard $50 for a gallon at Walmart I was interested to hear if they had other colors available in gallon sized, & also interested to hear they had tan in the can, as we though tan might work too. So thanks for copying the reply & sorry for the confusion
