I finished bedlining the Jeep
 
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

Looking good! I might do my door hinges. :thumb:

I like it

Wow, that looks great! I would have thought you used a lot more than 4 1/2 cans.
The hinge idea is a good one, mine are getting rusty and I was going to replace them, thanks for saving me a bunch of money!

Once you bedline a few parts, it turns into an addiction. I'm always thinking of other things I can use it on, and can see myself doing the whole jeep on day.
Looks good.

Very Nice...I was thinking of doing the same, but plasti-dip the fenders, door handles, hinges etc. kinda the black two-tone look ????

Looks sweet man!

great job man! looks super good, actually about to use some roll on in my tube this weekend.

Yesterday a resident dropped off some roll on Duplicolor bedliner at my job (Haz Waste/Recycling Center) so maybe I'll use it for the inside tub to thicken it up more.

I just occured to me that I should have bedlined the flares rather than Plast-Dip because it would be an easier/quicker touch up (if need be) without taping or removing them. I have so many cans of it laying around (my job again) that I figured I had to use it for something. I suppose I can bedline over the Plasti-Dip if I want.

Use a pencil and draw the jeep logo on there then paint it with a fine brush. That's what I'd do :D
