Default Truck bed liner on whole body and Chassis saver on frame

Hey guys, first big project. I'm Raptor lining the whole truck black, with grey trim (also Raptor lined) and doing chassis saver on the whole frame. Let me know what you think and any suggestions to do after this project. I'm planning on refinishing the rims and getting new tires soon, and I'll probably have to get a new exhaust system in the next couple years because the idiots that installed the current one put them in a place that the leaf springs scrape them and put pressure on them.

Got the bottom of the bed done. Looks significantly better now. I'm now prepping for paint on the bed and back doors which will only leave the trim and some details to be worked out!

Wow, that looks beautiful now. Great job! And in FL, it should stay beautiful for many years. Did you wire-wheel the whole frame? What paint did you use?

I used chassis saver (off brand POR15) after wire wheeling the whole frame, and grinding any pitting out. Scince this stuff actually sticks to rust I let a little surface rust develop overnight and painted over that. Came out pretty good. I did the frame and under the whole bed with 2 quarts.

Got all the major painting done today! Now I just have to paint the trim, put the bed on, and reassemble everything! Super excited, just the cab all done makes the work worth it.

Oh and there are some pics of the motorcycle too. The matte black suits eachother

That looks good! Didn't think bedliner would turn out like that on the body. Nice bike too btw! Can't wait to see the "it's finished" pics! Thanx for keeping the thread updated.
