I'm gonna post some more in-progress pics.
First off, let me offer a piece of advice to the guys that want to coat the outside of their rigs.
DO NOT TRY TO FLAT PAINT THIS STUFF!!! Maybe someone can get it to work with a spray gun, but it just won't work with a roller or foam brush. I mean, this stuff is bedliner, not paint.
I got it in my head that I could figure out a way to flat paint it, and tried it on my first coat. I really took my time and tried very hard, but let me tell you the main reason it won't work. This stuff is thick. It's bedliner for god's sake. So you'll paint it on nice and smooth and move on to another part. But because it's so thick, it takes a while to run, and since you've moved on you won't notice.
This is not a fault of the product. I was trying to use it way outside it's manufacturer's recommended application method.
So, one quart reduced about 10% with S8 reducer was just enough to completely coat all these parts with one coat.
edit to add: if you want to try to flat paint it, skip the reducer. It might help prevent the runs. But from a guy whose tried it, I DON'T RECOMMEND IT.
