painted the tub!

i read on here about painting the inside of the tub with dupli-color truck bed coating as an affordable and easy mod... so I did it.

I made a few mistakes that I would like to share with you to prevent you from doing the same.
1. give yourself ample time. Mine is carpeted and the PO used a lot of sticky adhesive for the Velcro strips. This guy went over board on the Velcro. Lots of time just scraping off the goo and cleaning with acetone.
2. make sure you have plenty of paint. I bought the spray cans with the information of the sales person that two cans would be too much, turns out I needed a total of 4 cans to do just the floor, not the side walls.
3. pull your blue tape before or after the paint completely dries. this can be tricky especially under the dash, but can be done. I waited till it set up and when i pulled the tape, some of my coating came up with it.

Overall I am very pleased with the material and like how hard it is now that it is completely cured. I went over board on masking but didn't notice any over spray, but really, is there such thing as over board on masking?

I would have taken some pictures had I remembered... oh yeah, make sure you stretch out your back after warming it up a little... you will thank me if you do.
Thanks for the idea, I had fun doing this little project and think you would too.
