    I have a set of cbi sliders on order that should be here wednesday. Trying to decide if I should just prime and rattle can them or spray them with the bed liner in a rattle can.

    Powdercoating isn't an option for me.

    What do you guys think is my best choice of product to use?

    Bed liner is just going to peel off if/when you drag them on a rock, while when the paint scrathes off, its a much more easy touch up......

    Rustoleum hammered finish. Looks good and handles people stepping on them fairly well.

    decided to go with some valspar gloss black tractor and implement spray paint today from tractor supply. supposed to take more of a beating than regular paint and has rust inhibitor in it.

    plan is scuff with sand paper (is this even possible????), wipe down with rubbing alcohol or paint thinner, prime, paint.

    Rustoleum is what I have and it holds up well and easy to retouch if you use them like I do :D
