Ron Noka’s ” Nite Hawk ”  Chevy Truck Restoration – Bedliner – Graphics

[divider style=”9″]



This is a pretty cool story this Project meant a lot to me.

Ron had owned this truck for over 30 years and had decided that It was time for a complete restoration. So he discussed with his Dog Tundra (and not after Toyota)  you might think In crazy telling you this but I grew up on a large chicken farm and we always had dogs. So I understood There was only one problem Ron and Tundra had to come to an agreement that if truck was getting a re-do

They were a part of our life like many of us and Ron was no exception his dog was a Big golden Retriever and rode in the back of the truck with Dad .If you grew up in our local community and you didn’t know Ron you were a foreigner ( just Joking )  But everyone knew Ron and  was happy to talk to him I always said when I retire I pray that I’m as easy going and happy !

Ron – He just had a cool way about him and was always sporting a larger than life smile.


You will notice I did this post – Ron Noka’s ” Nite Hawk ” Chevy Truck Restoration – Bedliner – Graphics from finish to start it’s just nicer when you can see the finished result in the beginning!

You will see here we are wet- sanding and buffing the final finish after a Black Sapphire metallic paint Job with 2 gallons of clear coat.

What we do on a project as massive as a big k series Chevy truck is cut and buff first then assemble and then back tape the moldings for a final glaze so we don’t get the compound in the moldings once we are all finished with assembly it’s easy clean up at that point.

No skimping on this project

We installed a brand new dash, new seat all new door rubbers rocker moldings and visors when you stepped inside this baby it was like brand new.

You will see below some very detailed pin-stripping on the side we included the Indian Feathers and on the tailgate the spear.

Ron was a Proud Narragansett Indian and I was friends with a lot of the local Tribe.



This gives you a side shot of the Body work straight as an arrow truck really came out nice I was fortunate to have 3 of my favorite – Team players on this Job Harry , Jason , and Slink – You are as good as your team in the real world and we all has our hands in this Job 🙂

Below you will see this full restoration project we even installed our Famous spray on bed-Liner   Ron fell in love with the bed liner I think he liked it because his partner in crime didn’t slip around as much. Also, you can see we went over the rails so he had full protection on his bed rails.

Famous Palm beach customs spray on liner

Below you will see the bed from the truck in prep stage.

I had to get a new floor and 2 new quarter panels we replaced all the sheet metal on the truck new doors, fenders, inner fenders ( you see them in the bed picture, rocker panels, quarter panels and rear bumper the only sheet metal that was original was the tail gate and the hood .. we gave the truck a full undercoating before the final coats of paint .

will do it in the beginning of the project and sometimes at the very end . In this case we wanted to shoot the liner in the beginning stages

so we could bring the final coat of indigo blue metallic over r the leading edge as you will see in the completed pictures .

Reflex vs. Rhino vs. Linex Spray on Bedliner Cost

John RussoBedlinerJuly 25, 20133 Comments

This post is going to compare the price differences of the three major spray on bedliners: Reflex, Rhino, and Linex Cost.

We’re also going to compare some of the common questions that many people ask when they are trying to decide which bedliner to put in their truck. Being in the auto body refinishing business, I have had the opportunity to work on all the major brands of trucks including

Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet, and the Asian brands of Toyota, Nissan, and others.

Quite frankly, all of these trucks would come in with different bedliners sprayed on them. So it was very common to have 3 or 4 trucks in my shop with Linex, Rhino, and Reflex this has given me a birds eye view for comparisons.

One might think that I’m biased because I spray the Reflex brand; and at one point in my career when I decided to add spray on bedliners to my business, I had to make a decision on which brand to go with just as you are by doing the research on what to put in your truck bed. This decision is a very important one because we value our trucks – the purchase price to own a nice truck can sometimes be upwards to 40-50,000 – so this is not a small decision.

Here’s an important fact: Your truck bed is definitely going to be better off with a Reflex, Rhino, or Linex liner installed. And I’m not going to go into listing all the benefits of putting a liner in your truck bed is the protection of your bed, cargo, etc. over the plastic liners.If you want to read more about that you can check out some other posts that I have done here that go over the advantages of a spray on liner.

Before we get into The price of a spray on Bedliner whether it’s a Linex -Reflex or Rhino

you will want to consider not just the cost of the actually Bedliner!


I will give you some things that you want to know about the quality of the products that not everyone is aware of.
Here is a quick list of questions you want to ask when considering the quality:

  • What are the ingredients of the product? Is it a polyuria-hybrid product?
  • What kind of UV protection is in the ingredients? What is the life of the UV stability?
  • Are you able to get unlimited colors over the standard black if you want?
  • How is the prep and installation completed? What are the procedures?

Below you will find pictures from my shop of vehicles with Reflex, Linex, and Rhino. You’ll see the differences in quality, texture, imperfections, and UV problems. My point being here is that a picture is worth a thousand words, right? One thing I have made a practice of is that I never try to make sales bringing down my competitors. So let the pictures do the talking.  I would love your comments!

Reflex Spray On Bedliner Excellent Finish Durability and UV protection


Rhino spray on Bedliner with the Typical Sun Fade
Linex example with sun fade 6 months old

Back to the subject of the spray on bedliner cost.

I will say that generally speaking, all three companies are within $50-75 of each other. So it really comes down to the quality of the product and the confidence you have in the dealer (what type of work they’re producing).

It’s usually impossible to find the pricing for a spray on bedliner unless you call the dealer.

But I’m going to go against the grain and give you the cost of the Reflex brand liners from my facility. Please keep in mind that I don’t ask for extra for over rail, under rail, etc. – I have a flat price policy. This will narrow down the three most popular truck beds that we service:

  • 6.5′ bed        $450.00   plus tax
  • 8.0″bed       $550.00 plus tax
  • mini              $375.00 –  $425 plus tax
  • Jeeps           $625.00 plus tax


There you have it – that’s what we charge at Palm Beach Customs when we do your spray on bedliner project.

We use the highest grade urethane products and colors available to give you the best color and UV resistance. The only maintenance is to wash it with soap and water once in a while to keep it clean. The other brands usually offer a yearly UV protection coating – but who wants to go through that trouble?

Here is some Technical info for all you techies ” 🙂


Here is some techie info for all you Tech Heads ! Directly from Reflex

Q: Is Reflex UV Stable?

A: The short answer is yes, Reflex is UV stable, but the one question does not address the true concern regarding the retention of the original appearance. Many truck bedliner groups claim UV stability and yet look terrible less than one year later. UV stability only means that the material won’t fail due to exposure to sunlight. It’s really something that needs better interpretation. Color stability and resistance to premature oxidation of the surface are the two most important issues from the standpoint of how a truck bed liner looks two years down the road. Our Polyurea Hybrid Chemistry is formulated from a group of polyols and isos that perform as well as cured urethane material exposed to intense direct sunlight.

Our primary concern is that a Reflex truck bedliner looks as close to original condition on its second birthday. We know from years of trials that when we get that much longevity, the following years will also be satisfactory to the customer and repeat sales will follow. We also use the best colorants, including automotive color toners that have a proven UV performance history.

Q: Spray-on Bedliners: Hard vs. Soft vs. Flexible. How does Reflex compare?

A: Some truck bed liners are made from relatively hard, rigid materials and most competitors trying to market harder products like to refer to Reflex as being “soft”. Reflex really isn’t soft but rather extremely flexible. Just like the rubber used in car tires; you wouldn’t think of a tire as being soft or fragile, and you also know that a tire is extremely rugged and will withstand a lot of abuse. If car tires were made from a harder, more rigid rubber composition, three things would change: The vehicle would be a lot noisier because of the rough ride, the tires would wear out much sooner, and you would slide a lot farther while trying to stop. Hardness is not a measure of durability and abrasion resistance.
Our Polyurea Hybrid Chemistry is formulated to have the properties of a rubbery inline skate wheel instead of hard plastic. Reflex’s flexibility results in fantastic grip and its surface will protect the cargo from sliding, scratching or marking.
Another example of flexible material strength is the liner inside of concrete pumping hoses that utilize a very flexible rubber for the best possible resistance to severe abrasion. Reflex will outperform any other truck liner product in a sandblast chamber because it does not chip away from the jagged profile of the blasting sand.

Q: How do the physical properties of Reflex compare to others?

A: Reflex has a Shore A hardness of 85, Tensile strength of 2,000 psi. and elongation of 600%. It is difficult to use these numbers to make an accurate comparison between products, however, because all three numbers need to be considered together. Paper, for example, at the same thickness as a rubber band is a harder material and will have a higher tensile strength, yet it will cut easily compared to the rubber and tear rather than stretch. Similarly, concrete has a high tensile strength but doesn’t make for a good truck liner. The materials should be tested for suitability of purpose, apart from focusing on one particular specification. We could be misled by focusing on elongation alone, but the real test of a material is in an extended field test where all elements come into play.

Hope this provides some valuable information and if there are any other questions that you would like answered please contact us.

 Commercial fleet truck lettering packages and custom car graphics for nearly two decades.

Palm Beach Customs is no stranger to truck and car graphics. We have been providing top quality commercial fleet truck lettering packages and custom car graphics for nearly two decades.

Many of our customers realize that in today’s economy a business must take advantage of all the ways to market their business and get in front of their potential clients and to brand their company for the success they are looking for. Some clients use their personal vehicles and/or a few company cars while other clients have a large fleet of vehicles at their disposal. Here at Palm Beach Customs, we can provide both of these types of clients with the business advertising they need with truck and car graphics.

We provide:

  • Design from concept to reality
  • Fleet  refinishing
  • Fleet lettering
  • Spray on bedliners
  • Complete branding packages


Below is a local company, Cape Coral Plumbing, that we installed a spray on bedliner inside their utility body and up and over the tool boxes. Along with a commercial fleet lettering package, we did a complete logo design installation on their brand new F-450 work-truck. The choice of colors on the white body was very simple blue for the plumbing and red for the heating.

Another example of another very big client that has a large fleet of trucks is Fagan Door Company located in Rhode Island. The fleet of trucks they operate are two colors – dark green metallic and jet black. Their logo is a 4 leaf clover where we used 22 karat ¼ inch engine turn gold leaf with a green outline. The design is easy to read and very clean you will notice both clients put their web domain names on the trucks. As a matter of fact, Fagan chooses to only put their domain names without phone numbers (

Are all auto body shops created equal?

[divider style=”9″]

This is a good story of a Jeep CJ-7 total frame-off restoration done in our auto body shop at Palm Beach Customs. The customer, Ann (real name), is a really cool girl – she runs her own small business serving Lee County with her own construction company.

Ann is a dedicated CJ fan – so this was going to be a fun project.  We dismantled the Jeep and did a complete assessment of the parts needed for the job and we ordered all new sheet metal to get the project started.

Choosing Your Auto Body Shop…

[divider style=”9″]


When choosing your auto body shop for a project like this you need to be careful because not every body-shop is capable of doing a ground-up restoration – it takes a different mindset.

Then, most of the collision auto body shops are all about the numbers – how fast a task can be completed this is important in the bottom line, but a much different approach is used when doing a frame off restoration.  It’s more about procedures and quality rather than “how soon can this be done?” I’m sure you get my point



Everything on the body we prepped, sanded, and replaced with new metal where it was needed. The frame needed new perches, new body mounts, complete stripping, and then undercoating. It’s interesting to see that when we were cutting out and cleaning up any previous work (30 plus years old) you realize how many hands have been in the pudding before you.



Our auto body shop is one of the few that provides a spray on bedliner service and we get tons of Jeeps in, as well as the pick-up truck beds, boats, and trailers. CJ-7 Jeep

That was great for this particular jeep because we sprayed the complete underside of the body tub, then flipped it over and sprayed liner into the passenger compartment, which sealed it up nicely. All the body parts were epoxy primed, filled, and block sanded.

An all new windshield frame with windshield and new gaskets were also put on to replace the older parts.


House Of Kolor Kandy ,Auto Body Shop

The client chose a beautiful House of Kolor paint – Kandy Tangerine for her color. We applied the nova orange ground coat before the tangerine – along with many final coats of high solids clear to finish it off.

Pristine example of car graphics & logo design applied with custom paint


This is a pristine example of car graphics & logo design applied with custom paint for a complete color branding of a company and the image they want to portray to the public. There is no vinyl application in this particular piece – it is completely done with automotive finishes and paint masks. We hand taped and airbrushed the vehicle and logo that you see.

a logo design applied with custom paint
We hand taped and airbrushed the vehicle and logo that you see.


This is unlike a vehicle wrap, which is essentially a full sticker on the vehicle. Vehicle wraps often have a lot going on in the space and comes off as cluttered and difficult to understand what the main point is. While this works for some, the finished product of a vehicle is not as classy as what was done with this truck for Prestige; it does not require the same amount of skill, application time, or design and this is reflected in the end result.

car graphics
we used House of Kolor Burgandy and rainbow minis



You can think of the popular soda brands, Coke and Pepsi to illustrate a great logo and sign design scheme. They are both clean logos with only a few colors and easy to read fonts. The work done with the Prestige truck can be equated to the Coke and Pepsi labeling scheme: it’s clean, simple, and easy to spot with the white and blue two-tone body paint and easy to ready logo.

Base coats of graphics done with a logo design applied with House of Kolor custom Paints Ready for clear coats


Along with the custom car graphics and paint, Prestige also decided to go with the Reflex spray-on bedliner that Palm Beach Customs provides to the SWFL area. The bedliner completes the clean look of this vehicle and it will never fade in the sun due to UV protection characteristics, flake from dry rot, or fail you when loading heavy equipment.

Looking for Bedliner and Repair For Camper Rv and Trailer Roofs?

[divider style=”9″]

Owners of motor homes and trailer roof owners know that fiberglass is actually quite easy to break or damage.


Sometimes, all it takes is a rock chip to slam in the fiberglass body and make a big dent in the motor home or trailer roof.


Here’s a case in point. This Camper RV owner brought in his RV which needed some patch work and full sprayon bedliner treatment.


Even though bed liners were created for the roofing industry, RV entusiasts quickly recognized its unique features and started using bedliners for their camper RVs.



Take a look at the camper that we sprayed for a local Fort Myers Customer, with a breakdown of everything we did on this RV:

  • First we prepped and taped off the areas that we did not want to cover
  • Then we washed the Camper top with a cleaner
  • the roof had small cracks in the fiber glass
  • The owner did not want the camper to get worse over time so we did a full body fiberglass inspection and repair
  • The color  picked for this Camper Repair was light gray
  • We applied the excellent Reflex Brand Spray On Liner with the proper pigment

Jeep parts and accessories in SWFL

John RussoBedlinerDecember 13, 20120 Comment


Are you looking to trick out your current Jeep or have plans in the future?

To own one of the most  bad ass Jeep 4x4s that are made in the USA since 1941  take a peek at 2 pretty cool Jeeps that we tricked out at our Shop. The Red Jeep 83 is a CJ-7 from California that happens to be owned by Jamie Russo.

This was a special project that father daughter worked on ( me being ‘the Dad ‘) since she was 14 years old. Growing up in a Body Shop Environment had its rewards especially seeing all the cool cars and trucks rolling into the shop. It sure would have the young peoples attention – including the ones who never grew up — lol.

Jeep parts and customs in SWFL


Ok lets talk about the body work and paint now. We stripped this baby down to bare metal with zero rust exposed. Simply love the California cars for this reason and gave it many coats of Epoxy Primer and urethane Primer, then the block sanding and straightening out all the sheet metal began– and I must say not bad for My Daughter, Her cousin Jordan  &  Kai  did all the wet sanding  — at 15 years old — 🙂


Then the difficult task of picking a color to paint when you are a kid and walk into the paint  mixing room  — with a complete House of Kolor Mixing bank at your disposal — We went from Lemon Ice to Tangerine and finally Candy Apple Red was the final decision.  It requires a cinder red ground coat then apple Kandy the HI grade urethane. Flow clear by House of Kolor  you can see below it came out very nice.



  • Jeep parts and accessory’s  in SWFL  we added Reflex Bedliner to the inside of of the Jeep Floor
  • Spray liner was also applied to the roll bar
  • we also installed a Weber carburetor, new radiator, lights and goodies  



On a photo below is a 1968 Jeep that the shop restored for a good friend John Gordon. When this came in it had no rust just in need of some love and updating so we did the body work and paint along with a spray on liner on the bed floors, new seats and roll bar. We used his company colors of indigo blue.

We take serious Pride in our work since the early days in the 1980 s we have been Restoring Classic & Muscle Cars while  providing Collision Repair and auto paint services for customers all over the USA . Clients ship there cars  to us from all 4 corners of the country to get there cars and Trucks Restored.

What might this have to do with A Spray on Bedliner, you might ask, and its a very valid question.

The answer is simply who would you like working on your car, truck, boat? A company that has recently started and has no experience in dealing with expensive vehicles, or a company that has thousands of automotive restorations?

We spray many liners on boat floors, boat trailers, jeeps, recreational vehicles, car bumpers & floors… Clients are driving from Tampa, Miami, Naples and of course all of Lee County because they recognize the quality we put out for our customers.
