    Finally some progress!
    Scuffed up the paint, which was in good shape, went with Krylon OD flat rattle can. All told took 13 cans, approx 4 coats over the entirety.
    As far as the bedliner, I went with the only 2 part epoxy system I could find out there, gator-guard. It took 2 complete kits, I was happy with it, I put approx. 2 coats on for good coverage. I had some serious rust issues on the roof and some more minor ones on the bottom of the doors. I wire brushed the rust off, acetone cleaned, sprayed any rust areas or bare metal areas with rust converter, then bedliner. The doors are removable so I had them all off in order to fully protect the edges right up to the bend as well as the interior bottom approx 3-4". While I had the doors off I also did the door sills and rockers right down to the pinch seam. I had some bad problems along the roofline at the windshield where I was the victim of vandalism and my body guy butchered the job so I did right in the windshield channel. Very happy with the results.

    I rolled and brushed on the bedliner. Any discoloration you see in the OD paint in those above pics is just dirt or varsol overspill from the prep work to bedlining. The best part of the OD is that any nicks or scratches I can go over with a spare can and it blends in perfectly.

    Thanks Josh, felt small next to your big beast tho! I'm just happy to get control of the problem rust areas on the surface, undercoating every winter will take care of the rest.

    Steve, at least mine runs!! With out the knock, knock, knock!! Ha!
