x2. It could be a lil thicker but it does the job for me. Upol is great stuff and if you prep and apply correctly it'll last a while. The only chips I have in it are from the 5500 watt generator I hauled back there from the repair shop and from when I dropped my hi lift jack on it. Small chips, nothing major lil duplicolor rattle can bedliner touch up will take care of it.

I removed the carpet about a month ago. xtra heat not too bad. I did buy a roll of gray auto carpet at Big Lots for $8, plan to cut pieces that will generally fit to help with heat and sound (with proper holddowns of course), but plan on lining the tub first. Line-x nice (had it in a previous pickup) but real expensive. Planning on a DIY. Was thinking about an Al's Liner, heard good things about it. Still researching.

As far as the prep goes I used 220 grit sand paper to scuff everything up. They supply one green scrub pad with the kit, but I felt it wasn't going to last very long or do a good job. Once everything is scuffed up vacuumed then tape off and wipe down with Acetone. Then spay it on use low pressure like 40 lbs or less (practice on a piece of card board till you get a good pattern). I let first coat sit about an hour then did second coat, again I let it sit an hour, and then I peeled off the tape. This is a must don't let the coating dry or you will have to use a razor blade to get the masking tape off! One other tip leave your drain plugs in! Then after the tub dries use a razor to free them up! Good luck!
