Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

okay I just did one liner to see how it would go.

1. It now sheds water
2. It still has the felt texture
3. It's still flexible
4. It didn't smooth out the liner so trapping leaves and twigs would still be an issue.

How did the bead liner spray job work out, now what it has been at or over a year.

I've removed mine to access the fog lights. Nothing behind them besides the guts of the car. The amount of dust those things retain is insane.

What was your experience with road noise after you removed them? I've got oversized tires (275 55 R20) and I'm trying to either pin the liners back or remove them all together to get some more articulation clearance in the rear.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

Most higher end vehicles have been using felt liners for long time now. I was always told it's for sound deadening. I like them. They spray off clean and never looked aged like plastic eventually does.

Re: Felt Wheelwell Liners removeable?

That bedliner trick looks pretty nice and I bet will help quite a bit. As an alternative, you could use a rubberized undercoating spray, which also has sound deadening qualities.
