First off, my Jeep was already black and full of scratches so this was not an extreme change for me.
I used Duplicolor aerosol bedliner so it's not nearly as thick as roll on bedliner.
I think thick bedliner would be sweet but I've always liked this stuff. It's pretty tough.
I guess it's kinda sandpaper-like feeling.
I did my whole interior a few years back with good results so I just figured "what the heck?" and did it.
I basically just used a spongy sanding block to scuff it up, then used masking tape to cover things.
My sidesteps were getting a little rusty so I sanded them and did them too.
It took about 4 1/2 cans but you could always go thicker. I used aerosol Plasti-dip on my flares.
I just came from the car wash, where I used the soapy foaming brush and pressure washer and it was easy.
I like the flat look and I always have a can around for touchup if need be.
As of now I can't find my digital camera so my phone pics will have to do.
I doubt sticker letters that would work here so I guess I could just paint the letters.
Or I could just say "screw it" which is probably what I'll do
