    Here are some pics of how it's going so far (click on my webshots). Between this and work I have been pretty busy and haven't been on here hardly any in the last few weeks /forums/images/icons/frown.gif . The first coat of epoxy primer is sceduled for next weekend and then the body filler after that.

    Nope noth outrages just a simple royal blue and the bottom 10-12" of the body will be gray bedliner with the cap gray also. With the rust repairs I had to do and the fact that the old paint was all chipped up along the lower side of the body I figure the bed liner material should eliminate those problems, plus be diffrent and have a utiliterian look to it.

    It was about an hour job after the old carpet was removed. Just used my wire brush and Makita grinder to clean it up a bit the wiped it down with that stuff you use to get rid of any oil or wax then brushed it on. The best part was it only cost me $27.25 and that was with shipping www.por15store.com and it only took a pint (said it would cover 50 squar feet. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    You can fix holes with it also just brush it on then lay down some fiberglass cloth and then put on another coat over that according to the catalog I got with it.

    That looks awesome!! I like your Idea about the bedliner on the bottom half, I think I might do that to when I start the bodywork.

    Nice work!
