    Here is the floor after I did a crude amount of bedlining, It wasnt final at this stage because I didnt have anything to Mask off lines with. Dont ya just love the TRUE bucket seats /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I also took out the old sagging headliner and if anyone wants pics of that I would be happy to show them also.
    I have noticed a bit of heat in the cab at the floor but not enough to bother me. It is also louder inside, but again not enough to bother me.

    Duraliner just a cheap walmart brand, I figure im better off paying 30 for a gallon, and I can always do touch ups later on rather then getting it Rhino lined.

    For prep it said to take all the glare/glossy look out of the paint. well that was no trouble with the floor area. I went to town on that until it was near bare metal but left some original paint there for something to bond to, I also gave it a quick shot of some primer. sanded it a tad too.
    I did make the mistake of not sanding the area under the seat good enough, because when I was putting the seat back in a mount scraped and pulled a chunk right off, I patched it up though. The floor area is good, ive been driving it and what not, its holding up good to people getting in and out. I figure This winter I well try and remove the bad parts under the seat and redo them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
