If I remember correctly https://shop.truckmountforums.com actually refused to install unless the padding was removed. It was like I had to do it or else, not do it if you want to. I did not really want to, but I knew I had to get that padding out of there.I am trading in my 2004 savana, i pick up new one tomorow. We pulled out the TM already took a hour with fork lift! I love GMs!
How much was a spray in liner? I am going to call linex tomorow its not close by. I have to install my TM right away. Pic of my new van!If you can it will be a good idea to take it out and put a spray in bed liner. It looks good and protects the floor from rusting out and looking like Sh*!t.
I just bought herculiner at lowes thanks for the tip. Line x told me $599 plus $100 if i want the good stuff. Did you just do the floor or go up the walls a bit? I left the factory mat in the front of van by the seats. Thanks for any input!I left mine in my 2004 Chevy and it rusted big time underneath. My new van I rolled on Herculiner before the TM was installed.
So Jim, I pull the mat out and there is a padding underneath( to my sorrow is wet as can be). If you do remember situation with your van, what did you use to scrape off existing padding with? I suspect that this is going to be hardest thing to face. Rest of it is easy( relatively). I rarely ask someone to help me, so I do heavy lifting myself, 340 lb, 200lb , etc. , but I can get van empty in few hours, applying coats of bed liner is no problem, what about drying time in this funky weather?We put black herculiner in a van and up the walls a few inches back in the early 2000's. It worked well, but the only thing we didn't like was the black showed everything, any spills dried whitish, any leaks from the vac hoses dried gray. It was tough to keep it looking clean.
