No prep work needed. Just soap and water and and some painters tape. Any overspray rubs off easy. Keep layering it on and you won't be able to see small chips or pits

I actually have 2 days off and nice weather without rain. I am hoping to bed line tomorrow. Doing the fender flares.

Because this is my DD also I have to admit I'm a little nervous. I want it to look nice. I am planning on getting painter's tape and plastic at the store tomorrow so I don't get the bed liner on the paint.

Any last minute advice other than cleaning? I'll be posting before and after pics.

I also have a new antenna and more grab handles to install.

I guess, it all depends on application and the abuse that it will take in that location.

Good luck.

I used Plasti Dip on my fenders, headlight bezels and handles and it works great!!!

I was bored at work and drew on a paper plate then cut it out. I used some tape to hold it in place and did four light burst of plasti-dip and pulled it off. It's an experiment and seems to be working.

I tested it and didn't have any problems with reception. Doesn't really matter anyways to me because I haven't listened to the radio in years.

Here is the before, during, and after pics from my bed lining today:

I'm about to repaint my flares, sideview mirrors, and front grill thing that says JEEP on it.
I think that I was going to go with flat or satin black duplicolor.
Haven't ever done this before, so
1. Is duplicolor good?
2. How many cans should I need with a little extra to paint what I see
3. How many cans of adhesion promoter?
4. What grit should I sand the flares at if I should sand them at all?
I've read so many different opinions on the thread so far that I'm basically as lost as I was at the beginning XD
I don't really want to use a bedliner since it will be tougher to clean and fix. I don't really like the appearance of it as much.
