Truckbed Liners – Rugged Protection with Dozens of Uses

Putting a truckbed liner into the bed of your pickup truck is a great way to protect and expand the number of tasks you can use it for. Coating your truckbed with one of these polyurethane products makes your vehicle tougher and better able to keep up with the hard work you expect from it, and keeps it rust free and intact for years to come. If you use a textured liner, the truckbed will have much more “grip” as well, so that things you put into the pickup won’t slide around as much.

There’s no reason to limit use of truckbed liners to your favorite pickup truck, though. There are lots of other useful applications for these rugged coatings, from cars and boats to trailers and home improvement. Once you get started coating wheel wells and garage floors with truckbed liner, you’ll begin to see hundreds of other great uses for the substance, too.

Besides pickup truck beds, there are many automotive uses for this excellent substance. Sprayed into wheel wells, truckbed liners will ward off the effects of road salt, grit, and even mud and muck when you drive your pickup or other vehicle cross-country to a work site, or relax with some vigorous off-roading fun. You can undercoat your car to help keep the floorboards from rusting through, spray SUV floors to give more grip and prevent rust when you climb in with muddy boots on the job, coat your trunk interior so that it won’t corrode, put a tough coating on your running boards, and apply it anywhere else that wear and tear – or rust – is likely to show up.

Truckbed liner will stick to almost any surface, from metal to ceramic, from wood to PVC, bonding strongly and permanently, and shielding whatever you coat with it from water, chemicals, scrapes, and dings.

Bait tanks and pond linings, the inside and outside of utility trailers, and all kinds of storage tanks can be sprayed or roll coated with the substance, too, making them longer-lasting and less apt to leak. A coating of truckbed liner on your garage floor will give you better footing while working on your car or other projects. Used on basement walls and floors, it’ll seal out ground moisture.

Just about every part of a boat will benefit from a good, thick coating of liner, while if your wife or girlfriend is nagging you for some kind of “honey do” project, then see if you can work truckbed liner into it to make sure you won’t need to do it again too soon. Those wooden planters where she’s planning to put her begonias will last much longer outdoors if they have a good, solid coat of liner on them inside and out, and the same is true of that patio or deck that you just finished for her, too.

Wherever you’re working, there’s a strong chance that you can make use of truckbed liners to do the job a little better. Keep your eyes open for possibilities, and you’ll be surprised at the number of ways these polyurethane coatings can make your projects more successful and fit your surroundings better to your rugged lifestyle.

Gimli Dragway is proud to announce our first major entertainment event!

The Mobil 1 Thunder Jam is brought to Manitoba by Chudd’s Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep in Gimli and Walls Rod and Custom of Winnipeg.

Monster Jam heads from the arena to the drag strip and transforms into action packed, high speed Thunder Jam!

The show will feature an incredible line up of thrilling race machines designed to treat Manitoba race fans to a show unlike any other.

Monster Jam superstar Randy Brown pits his legendary 2,000 horsepower Grave Digger against Manitoba’s own IHRA World Champion drag racer Kenny Lang and his hemi powered 2,000 plus horsepower Pro Modified Camaro. While the two machines have very few similarities and are designed for two totally different forms of racing, they both share one very common characteristic – when they pull onto the track, fans take notice. The pair will go head-to-head in one of the most unique, most exciting and most over-the-top drag racing events ever at the Mobil 1 Gimli Thunder Jam.

In addition to the never seen before finale, the Gimli Thunder Jam will also feature a unique match up as Prairie Gold, Canada’s only bio fuel powered jet funny car returns to Winnipeg to take on Scott McVey’s 3,200 horsepower top alcohol funny car. This promises to be an all out test of power and speed.

Local and visiting drag racers will be going for the gusto for the prestigous Ironman trophy throughout the early evening, too. To add to the excitement, spectators will get the chance to be up and close to the feature stars and their cars at the ThunderFest Pit Party.  The entire pit area will be open so that you can see all of the race cars and talk with the drivers and crews. Souvenirs and concession food will round out the fun.

This is the first time that any drag racing event of this magnitude has come to Manitoba.

Fans of fast cars and explosive action are in for some incredible racing and a ton of fun! This is a “can’t miss” event!
