And the in use testing has started

Scotch scuff pad followed by some simple green and some time at the car wash.

Then 1st coat using the grey. It dries a few shades darker, and my camera lightens things a bit.

Dried, color wise its somewhere between the back and the bed.

Using the restore roller, plenty of texture.

2nd coat, i went with a really dark green when dry. Its setting now and ill be leaving it alone for a bit. Temps are low and being water based dry time will be extended a bit.

It looks really good, time will tell how it holds up. I ended up using about 3/4 a gallon on the 1st coat. 2nd went on a bit thicker and i used all but an inch or so. So 2 gallons would have done it with plenty left over. So if things work well, $50 for a colored bedliner vs $100 for black vs $1500+ for a spray in.

Or worst case and im out $50 on my $200 truck.
