I have not used Scorpion products yet, so maybe they are great, but 9 out of 10 on the market are not. That is not to say they don't have their place, but you get exactly what you pay for.
Scorpion spray $100
Cheap air gun $40
Air Compressor $100
Prep Supplies $50
Taping supplies $50
Your damn near at $350 anyway, why not just pay the extra $100 and get it done professionally with a warranty?
I'd tend to agree. I have NO bedliner whatsoever. So i have no experience in it. But when I get it done I'm going to get it professionally Line-x'ed. It'll cost a little bit more, but once its said and done with i'tll last longer, plus a great warranty. It also should perform better than most DIY stuff (im not saying DIY stuff is shit, It works for some, others it doesn't.
But hey, I'm also a Freshman in college, Getting it professionally done isn't in the budget whatsoever. So I know where that penny pinching comes in. I buy things for my truck all the time just to tide me over.
If you want to DIY then go for it, your choice. DIY might work a lot in your favor as well. Or it could shrivel up and fade and die in like 2 weeks. I haven't got a price check, But that 4k price tag is wayyyyyyy above what I've heard.
