    Bed liner day!

    today i decided to apply bed liner to the tub. it was just the $100 EZ liner kit from canadian tire.

    First i sprayed "Marine Clean" at almost full strength in every nook and cranny that was all full of dirt and crud. after letting it soak for a few minutes, i blasted the interior clean with the pressure washer.

    once dry, and with the help of cherokee steve and my wife, we sanded the interior of the tub with 80 grit untill everything was gone over.

    after another thorough cleaning once again, it was time to mask off the areas i didnt want sprayed. i decided i wanted to do the top edges of the tub and the door frame, since they are areas that recieve a fair bit of contact.

    so here are some before and after pics.

    enjoy...







    i mixed the product half at a time and went easy on the hardener to give myself ample time. once it got tacky to touch after the first coat, i sprayed on the rest on. Giving areas like the floor a good, heavy second coat.

    i used an undercoating gun we had in the garage so buying one wasnt necessary.

    as i remember details, i will edit and add.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    I didnt really put much thought into it, and found the most difficult part was the sanding. most was done with the palm sander.

    Yes Tim, i kept in mind about smaller batches. it was recommended to do two coats anyways, so mixing half at a time, and not allot of hardener, worked well.

    The more i look at the pics, the happier i am with the results. i havent been over to see how well its cured, but will be over tonight to check it out.

    Hi Billy! And great job. Which bed-liner product would you say is the best? And, is it necessary to sand the floor before applying the bed-liner? My floor is in awesome shape, I just wanted to throw away the rug and protect the floor.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sanding creates a rough surface for the liner to adhere to, so it is a necessary step. Not sure if there are other chemical products on the market that will make a good painted surface paint ready as well though.
