    Since it's getting close to painting time I'm tearing everything apart, and when the carpet came, so did some of the floorboard... hehe.. Man it's amazing how much rust there is. So yesterday I finished the application of POR-15. Seems toi be nice stuff.. Tomorrow I will be fiberglassing in the holes. And am planning on coating in all in bedliner when I'm done. Will I have probs getting the bedliner to stick? I was thinking to just rough up the POR-15 like they recommened in the manual with 600 grit. Any comments or ideas to help me out?

    Thinking of doing the same thing. Been told that POR15 may not allow the bedliner paint to stick after cure. It was recommended to try applying the bedliner paint while the POR15 was still tacky. Have not tried this out yet.

    How easy was it to work with POR15, any problems? Where did you get the fiberglass and how much was it? I will be doing the same once the truck is out of the weld-shop.

    The worst part of putting on the POR-15 was the prep work for it. For it to protect the metal everything has to be down to either metal or rust. It dried in about 4 hours and after the night had passed it seems tough as anything. I wailed on a couple of spots with a hammer and the stuff didn't crack of... **cool** The fiberglass I'm using is my friends. I have to go buy fiberglass resin here at the local marine shop, I'd imagine they have [fiberglass mat and cloth there as well.
