Bedliner for the Brat - Gator Guard PT1

Not much to write other than the bed of the Brat was getting pretty beat up from actual use, and any place the paint came off, rust formed almost instantly. So with the help of my father and father-in-law over the July 4th weekend, we spent a few hours sanding away any rust and priming it, filling in some holes with body filler, scuffing the entire bed with 80 grit, then cleaning with denatured alcohol. After some tedious masking, the bed was ready to be shot. I was using a two part epoxy liner called Gator Guard. So far, I'm very happy with it. We will see how well it holds up. Part two will show off the finished product. The last picture shows the first half of the bed finished.
