DIY Raptor Spray in Bed Liner and LED Bed lighting (PICS)

If anyone here is looking into a spray in bed liner then I would really suggest looking into the U-Pol Rapter bed liner. After researching it and seeing all of the jeep guys love it and put it thru all kinds of abuse, I figured its good for me. The hardest part was sanding the bed all down. Now on to the pics

I started off by removing the bed liner and found a hole lot of **** under there. Mostly leaves and mold from the water but also found some rust spots.




I cleaned and scrubbed the whole inside with simple green and got all of the crap out.



After that I sanded the whole bed down and hit all the areas with primer where I went thru to bare metal.



I masked everything off and put a tent up because the leaves were falling like crazy.



I sprayed the whole thing with raptor bed liner and this pic is immediately after I got done. you can see its looks a little uneven but after it drys it is all uniform finish.





After the coating dried I installed two 24in led strip lights under the bed rail

Now we just WAIT for time to pass to see how good it is. ALL bedlining looks GREAT right after it is first done..... retake photos in a year.
