Project Bedliner

Started doing my bed liner around the bottom half of my truck. i started with this section first because i had chipped off some paint from wheeling (which you can see from the first pic) right down to the bare metal. wanted to get it painted before the chemicals of the north took its toll on it.

put a good three coats on her.









i got the paint on and got the tape off, it started to peel off the edges of the paint. i had a tough time taking the tape off of the tailgate too when i painted that. but it was too dark to take a picture so it will be up tomorrow.

oh yea i just didnt have enough time today and i was worried it would be too cold. i did the bottom of the tailgate a couple months ago to fix a nice scratch i put in it. and figured id continue and go all around. the back corner panels will be tough with the bumper in the way. and i also have that famous dent in the corner that all rangers seem to have lol

i did like a inch inside the jams. just on the lower half. also going to do the bottom of the door. its starting to rust really nicely under there. but im going to need a heavier grit sand paper for that.

I know what dent you mean... mine has one too! The bumper isn't a big deal to take off to paint behind.

haha. its crazy how many rangers have that same dent
ill take a look. my guess is a few rusty bolts to take it off. somehow i gotta punch out the dent otherwise just paint over it and call it a day.

Just cut yours in the clear too.
That way the insurance will pay for a new truck and you won't have too

Looks good man. how much sanding did you do for prep? because that may also affect how it cures.
