Rhino Lined Power Running Boards

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their "chrome" power running boards Rhino lined? I have a 2018 1500 Midnight Edition and whatever idiot that ordered it at the dealership got chrome boards. I'm worried it may have issues sticking to the metal part.

I found several other posts on several other automotive forums of people that have sanded their chrome and had spray on bedliner applied with very good results.

As long as the metal is prepped well, you shouldn't have any problems.

I’m actually doing it today. 

 

Tore the chrome off, filled the gaps with bondo and coating with raptor bed liner spray. 

 

Ive done my first coat, just waiting to do second coat now.

If I were to do it over, I’d probably just grind the crap out of the chrome and leave those chrome strips on there, coat over them. 

 

But... I sanded my front mustaches chrome and did rattle can bed liner spray and about a month later noticed some bubbles. So tore all that rattle can bed liner spray off, to find you can actually peal the chrome off the mustache, so I took it down to plastic. Should stick now.

I’ve got 1 more bottle of spray to do. Gotta make it count, as on the 3rd bottle I got some good runs from going too thick

Looks pretty good, how hard are they to pull off?

The chrome? Or running boards? 

 

I’ve never mounted these, bought them and wanted to Black coat them before I did. 

 

I’m adding these to my Silverado, so building a wire harness and going off what the Chevy electrical god (pgamboa) has put out there.
