Tub finally lined....... Pic Heavy

Finally finished lining my tub. I had a lot of prepping to do. More than I first thought there would be. A couple of weeks ago I found a few rust through spots in the left and right side floor pans, so I fiberglassed them both. Thats when I decided to remove the brown outdoor carpet that was installed by the previous owner. When the carpet was removed i found that the sheet metal where the seats bolt in on both sides was split and coming apart. This was the first thing to fix. I welded all the cracks and splits up, then proceeded to weld up all the screw holes from where the carpet had been screwed down. After all that I guess it wasn't too bad. General cleaning and sanding for the most part. I wasn't happy to just use the scotch brite pad like most do. I actually used 120 grit paper on my sander. Lucky for me that my wife was bored, so I had some help.
For the liner I used the Dupli-Color brand bed liner. I chose this because its what I used for my bumpers and it worked pretty well. I bought a gallon and the application kit. (roller, pan, and brush) I had enough from the gallon to only do 2 coats, so I may do it again before long.



Welded floor at seat mount.

As you can tell, I didn't remove the rollbar, and the seatbelts I couldn't break loose so I strapped them out of the way.

It's even better when you can get your wife to do most of the work.

Yes it is. She likes to paint, so she willingly (with no argument from me) rolled it all. All I did was the cut in with the brush.

I used the dupli-color brand. They also have it in a spray can that is easier to use for touch ups if I need it. This is what I used on my bumpers, and it has stood up well, so I stayed with it.

Looks Great !!!
I like the dupli color because it is less "grainy" than some other bed liner paint.

The seatbelt bungies made me laugh, what a good idea.

Couldn't break the bolts loose, so I did all I could. The wife kind of got a kick out of that too.

I'm sure it will look great. I've heard that the herculiner is the best. The only reason I didn't use it is because they don't make it in a spray can like the dupli-color brand for any touch ups that may arise. Post some pics when you're done.
