    I've had 5 trucks now and have done a roll-on bedliner in every one of them. I've tried a different brand with every truck and I think I'm most pleased with the looks of this one. I'm curious to see long term durability.

    Raptor Kit:
    4-bottles of liner
    1-can of hardener
    1-spray gun

    Other Materials:
    100 grit sandpaper
    Scotch bright wheel
    Scotch bright
    Self etching primer
    Painters tape
    drop cloths

    Step 1:

    I washed the bed thoroughly with a wax and grease remover to get rid of years of car wash build up and oily residues.

    Step 2:

    Sand the finish until all the gloss is gone. I used a sander with 100-grit for most of it. Then I came back with the Scotch bright wheel followed by hand scrubbing with Scotch bright. This got rid of almost everything except the tight corners.

    Step 3:

    Since no one is perfect you may sand too deep and get to bare metal and you may not be able to get into the tiny crevices. Use a little self etching primer in these areas.

    Step 4:

    I disassembled everything I could to make masking easier. Make sure you double and triple check your masking because nothing will ruin your mood like blow-by.

    Step 5:

    Mix and spray a first coat like the Raptor instructions.

    Step 6:

    I followed the instructions and put on a 2nd coat on the entire bed and a 3rd coat on the floor, tailgate, and wheel humps. You may be able to do more or less depending on your bed.
