Subscribed. I've been contemplating on doing this to mine but not sure if I want to do it or have it done?

Also if you don't mind me asking what was the total cost of the project?

Im curious as well. I have a dump trailer and I wanted to line x it, but it was huge money. I just want to do the floor to prevent it from rotting, the powder coat is already coming off the floor.

It was the dupli color kit that came with a small roller, brush, tray and stir stick. oh and plus the gallon of bed liner. First if you have the money i would pay someone to do it because it makes a mess. i would do it outside in the gravel or lay alot of card board down like i did in the garage. Second the lines are hard to get strait but be patient and keep trying. Third it is very thin and when you first open the can all of the actual kevlar chips are at the bottom and you have to slowly stir it for about 15 minutes. The first coat will look horrible and you will be able to see right through it but just keep going over it until it looks good and then i would suggest after a few days adding a few more coats for protection. I get a pretty good discount at napa and the kit was $54.00 but i have seen them at Meijer for $99.00. I still have over a half a gallon left so i will be using some on the inside of my tool box. It feels tough today and i cant get it off with my finger nail anymore so it should do its job protecting from rocks. I would deffinitly reccomend doing this to anyone who wants protection and it gives a great 2 tone look. I think i might to all my chrome with it next but thats a pretty big decision. I dont really like chrome but i dont want it to look to cheesy. Oh and also WEAR GLOVES because it makes a big mess coming off the roller as well and it sucks getting it off your skin.

I used it several years ago on my Ranger bed. I think they have improved it since then, but I had adhesion problems, thickness problems (3 coat and it looks like a single layer of spray paint), and it was not UV resistant so it faded.

I hope it holds up for you better than it did for me.

I love the look though, perfect compliment to the red paint job.

I could deffinitly see a thickness problem in the bed of a truck. like i said i put alot of coats on and it is thin. so i agree with you there but im not so worried since i wont be throwing any parts or anything onto this stuff but i am kind of worried about it fading now that you said that. If it does i will probobly just go over it with some herculiner or something
