So if you've got rollers sitting around just buy a couple pints. I also picked up a rattle-can for like $8 to do the speaker grilles and lights.

Wasn't MUCH cheaper than having it done, but it was easy and I didn't want to have to take it to a shop, it was more about the time than the money for me.

That's probably what I'll do but since I have some plasti dip that's what I'll use on the speaker grills and lights

I love the camo you have!

$3 a yard is awesome! The only place around here that carries it wants $16 a yard!

The roll-on sounds like a good choice plus you have spare paint. I JUST finished spray painting mine with rust-oleum's truck bed coating, over a can worth of rust-oleum primer (Filler/Primer). One can of the filler/primer is not enough and the fiber lines of the board still transferred somewhat through 3 cans worth of the bedliner spray paint. My spray painting skills are not great so results are a touch blotchy but still satisfied.

If I had to do it again I would do a roll on application. But I think with 2 cans of 11oz primer/filler and 4 cans of 15oz spray can bedliner you can get decent results if you are ok at spray painting. FWIW, based on bluejunior's paint usage my estimate is near the same volume of total paint (82oz vs. say 5/8ths of a gallon? -80oz). So you might be able to save money by using more primer than bedliner spray? IDK about the results.

BTW I also taped 12 feet of 16inch of double bubble reflectix ($8 worth), loosely fitted under the metal roof. My air conditioner can use all the help it can get.

It's worth mentioning that the roll-on herculiner came out much more heavily textured (if I owned a camera I'd post a pick, but my smartphone's out of commission right now) than the spray-on job originally posted. None of the fiber lines came through, but it's knobby not smooth.

Maybe if you sanded it with a finer grit it would smooth it some?

I like ot fine as is, I just thought I'd give a heads up to anyone reading and considering using that brand.

No,
For 97+ take the middle light cover off to access the screws that hold the fixture in place. Same for front and back.

For 97-Take off the plastic light cover off then you have to get those stupid tabs off with a needle nose. Same for front and back. Quite the pita.
