Did any of you catch the segment on Mythbusters about the durability of bedliners? WOW I was 100% amazed. I knew that stuff was tough but when it held the wall together with the explosives...Holy Cow! And the Dog bite test....and the crash...

a few yrs back we was coming back from Coffyville KS with a steel shot blaster in the back of the truck. Somehow the powered shot residue on the floor caught on fire. We stopped and poured some Mountian Dew and bottled water on it. It didnt even mar it up, looked like nothing happened after i washed out the bed.

That was pretty cool. I think someone on here did their mower deck with it. The deck will out last the tractor! :bigrofl:

I just wish there season was longer, it seems like they just got started and they have already had their finial episode for the season. :mad2:

Frequently Disc channel does reruns...so it'll be back on In fact I think it is scheduled for tonight or tomorrow. I am not a TV fan in fact I probably watch 1 or 2 hours a month maybe...but this was incredible. One of the tests they sprayed bedliner on a wooden wall, both sides, made an identical wood wall with no bedliner, put an equal amount of explosives an equal distance from the walls ignited them and the wall with the liner looked like nothing happened, the other one was decimated...Wild!
Here is the aftershow...on youtube...
