I peeled off all the plastidip crap from my front end and shot some Duplicolor bed liner spray, the blue can not the shield with Kevlar. The stuff is great. I sanded the chrome with 80 grit, was going to go finer grit but honestly it is not necessary. Duplicolor self etching primer and 4 coats of the bed liner.





This one is still hanging there drying that's why it looks uneven. It takes more than 24 hours to fully cure.

Even if like I had a shop do it? I cannot install it myself and was trying to find a reasonable time. and this one place was saying like 7-10 hours for a professional shop to install it. Sound reasonable?

A shop will probably charge you about 5 hrs of labor at least. Try to haggle them down to 3 or 4. The average price range for what you want is around $600. Which would equate to roughly 6-7 hrs depending what the hourly rate is. So if you can get them down to $300-$400 that would be a good price from what I've seen.

Although a DIY job is always more fulfilling and saves $

HONESTLY, I would absolutely love to do it myself... But have never done anything of this serious in nature, and do not want to fuck up my truck or do something wrong.

I put my cousins 33" mud king on the back just to do it and it was a mistake. As soon as I lowered the jack I fell in love, so now I am and pricing lifts, tires, and rims.
