    That's the drivers side, the pass side is the one painted I coated the rear of the panels I may use rock guard I do like the look of fresh paint but I would like the durability of truck bed coating like you did on your truck I have another one just like this to do before the winter plus repairs, plows ect. Hope I can get it all done

    Took the driver's side fender off today started on the rocker and found that the floor needs to be repaired not what I was hoping for put more sheet metal work at least it will be stronger than it is right now then under coat the crap out of it

    i don't think I would have the patience to get the mixture right and all that. my father got me a husky gun about god 5 or 6 years ago still haven't taken it out of the box. I was going to use it to paint the plows with majic paint from tractor supply, that stuff is for dummies, you take 1 bottle of that brands hardener and reducer and add to every gallon of paint...now that's easy lol theres even an easier way...plasti dip lol
