Sub'd...I'm actually getting ready to do this soon on the reg cab I just bought. I just ordered the paint from automotive touch up's website to do mine. I will definitely be using this write up! Thanks!

Take your time and it'll hold up as good as factory paint. Mine is still in excellent condition.

When I put on the clear it orange peeled. I went back and wet sanded until I got 95% of the peel out. I'll reclearcoat this coming weekend if weather permits.

Mine came out great using the duplicolor perfect match MGM paint and clearcoat.

Goes great with BHLM. Much better looking than a stock OR front end to me

This thread was a big help

I also did the rustoleum bed liner. It's been on about a month now, holding up great. I did sand though.
