    Anyone have a suggestion for making the surface more slick so topsoil etc will slide out better??? Was dumping a load today and most of the soil was stuck had to get a shovel out it was a pain and cost me time. Thanks

    if you want cheap you do not want fluid film as much as you would have to use and reapply ,the abrasion from the dirt and sand would take it off in short order .any thing you have to spray on you will have to reapply .on a relatively constant basis .that's why you put a liner in the bed .this thin nylon or plastic is relatively cheap in the long term .they use similar products in dump truck's hauling fly ash and 500 degree asphalt . same idea as a plastic bedliner in a truck (slip sliding away)
