Default Bed Armored my truck bed

Well I finally got around to putting the Duplicolor Bed Armor w/Kevlar on my bed. I brought it down over the rails to match the tailgate. Was a pretty easy process. The prep work takes the most time. LOTS of sanding! I ended up buying an extra gallon cuz it was on sale. But i put 4 thick coats, about 1.5 gal of the product in the bed. I think it turned out real good.
