    when my black uws box starts to chip/peel.....i will be bedlining mine with herculiner....its pretty durable.

    for painting yours.........wash it really well/scrub it with a scotchbrite pad with dish detergent and water. after drying.....you are gonna want to use a good primer on it.........do a few coats to ensure its all even. then use the paint you choose and spray a few coats.............light coats are better, and you can even the paint out and make everything look good and even that way.
