    You want it course?? I wanted mine smooth, so I hand sanded mine flat and used John Deere Blitz Black after shooting it with there Buff Primer. As for it being course I really can't offer you any advice, sorry :confused: !!! I can dig out pictures of my top if you would like..

    I redid my 1st gen top a while back.Fixed all the cracks sanded it smooth then retextured it with a product called "Gator Gaurd".It's a bed liner but it's white.
    The texture came out REAL close to the orig. factory finish.
