Here's a picture of the part that chipped off... as you can see, it's right on a corner bend and I recall not sanding it too well in that area.

looks good warrior, I was thinking of doing the same thing but doing both bumpers as well. Seems like a good way to really protect the most vulnerable painted surface.

The lower rear panels look the same on mine. You should see it on a black truck. It's more white than anything right now.

Did you sand down to bare metal, prime and then paint Dupli-Color Truck Bed Coating on?

Is it in a spray can or did you use a spray gun?

I have been thinking of doing this also.

I wonder how this would work on the door sills?

I sanded it, but not down to bare metal. The stuff comes in a spray can, which is about $8 or $9 each.

What grit paper did you use?
The nasty stuff!! I don't recall actually. It was pretty coarse stuff though.

Nice job! It has been a year, how's the Dupli-Color holding out? Terrific hints and pictures.
This stuff has worked out great. There are only 2 spots where it has really flaked off of, and they are spots that I simply didn't sand well enough, in the door jambs.

I would recommend to anyone!

Jason,

How has this held up for you? Going to be doing some rust repair and painting the bottom section with this truck bed coating on my fathers F150.

Today's project folks!!!

There was no paint left on the lower rear portion of my rocker panels right in front of the tires (see attached). I've been experimenting with Dupli-Color's Truck Bed Spray Coatin over the past 1.5 years, and have found that it is pretty durable stuff. I've coated my Total Chaos Shackles, Tow Hooks, Rear Fender Wells, and also the "Impact" Struts on my my Pro Comp Lift Kit. The stuff has held up extremely well, so I decided to bite the bullet.

Started by masking off the area I wanted to paint.

Sanded it. (this was the most painful part)

Cleaned it.

Sprayed 3 coats of the Dupli-Color Truck Bed Coating.

Now I'm just hoping that it holds up well!!!

Didn't decide to do this till about 5:30 this afternoon, and since I had ran out of tape, and darkness was approaching, I decided to finish the driver's side tomorrow!

All told, once I go back and buy another roll of tape tomorrow morning, I will have $45 tied up into this project. Far cheaper than the 'wrap' idea that I had been dreaming of, and with any luck, more effective as well.

Still have to reinstall my N-Fab steps as well!

Oh well, enough of my ramblings, here are some pictures!
That looks real good actually:cool:
