How to bedline a toolbox





Alright, guys so the things you're going to need for this project is dupli-color truck spray, bedliner, some frog tape or your choice of painters, tape, a spongy block of sandpaper. I got this one's a 16 80 grit, some plastic drop cloths, so you don't ruin your floors and in this spray bottle is 91 % rubbing alcohol. I put it in a spray bottle to make things a little bit easier. So let me get started all right. Guys, the first thing you want to do if your shoes them use the drop cloth, is to get the drop cloth. Put down then add your sawhorses or whatever you're using to support the toolbox. Then add your toolbox all right guys. The next step is to get your isopropyl alcohol a paper towel spray it and wipe it down. So what you want to do is you just want to have it on a mist and just lightly wipe it down. This is just at first to get all the contaminants off the toolbox when we go ahead and use our sanding block on it. We'Re also going to wipe it down with isopropyl alcohol and you'll start seeing the aluminum residue coming off all right guys. I got this 80 grit sanding block, as you can see, says 1680, so we're going to use the 80 grit side we're just going to go back and forth and up and down, and once I get that to where I want it I'll bring you guys back. All right guys now, here's before and here's after obviously can see it's a lot more dull step for this is to take your alcohol and your rag, wipe it down a couple times until you don't have that gray, residue anymore, just wiped it all down, and that's What it should look like again wipe it down until you don't see any more gray, contaminants on that cloth and then you're ready to move to the next step. In my circumstance, I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to go all around the toolbox, get it all sanded first, I recommend doing that and then we'll be ready to apply the bedliner. So I got my little sanding block. I'M going to use the sixty grit. So basically, what I've been doing is I've been going back and forth side to side and then circular this is aluminum. It would be best to use some sort of um chemical that itches it or even if it was a primer, but I'm going to give it a shot doing this. Hopefully the results turn out good the whole surface sand it down. I hope you can see that I don't know if it's going to pick it up on camera, but it definitely has a brushed aluminum. Look to it. Now, it's not as shiny and it's all been wiped down two or three times it's the alcohol. Just to get extra measures, I've sanded down the top I'm about three times because to me that's the most important part. That'S the part you're going to see that as well as the front, so I think we're good I'm going to get some bed liner shaken up and we'll go ahead and go for it. [, Music ], you [ Music ] and you [, Music, ], [ Applause, ], [, Music, ], all right guys. So what you just saw was our first coat put it on thin, come back in five minutes and we'll be ready for our second coat [ Music. ] you [ Music, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], [ Applause, ], [, Music, ], all right we're on the third coat [ Music ]; Oh [, Music, ], [, Music, ] and [ Applause, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], Oh [, Music, ], you [, Music ], you [, Music, ], Oh [, Music, ], Oh [, Music, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ] and [ Music, ], Oh [, Music, ] and [ Music; ], you [, Music, ], [ Applause, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ], alright, guys here It is I just let it dry overnight: it's been about 12 hours so far. I just peeled off the tape dry to the touch I'm going to let this cure for at least 24 hours, most likely I'll. Let it sit in here for a couple days, just because I mean, if you put all the effort into it, you want it to last, but a came out really good. I just the black to me is a lot better than the polished aluminum its bed line. Now so it's not going to rip or tear like the plaque, see that did when my spare tire is rubbing around or so I have a bunch of wood stacked up or anything like that. So I am beyond happy, hopefully I'll, be able to give a review and a couple months of how it's holding up but yeah, I'm stoked. So, basically, now I'm at the point to where there's about a quarter inch lip of a non bed line surface. That goes all the way around I'm debating on taping off the bed. Liner I'd probably wait the 24 hours, and I could put my tape here - said line the rail and then I'm thinking about bed lining the floor and possibly the size, and then I don't know. I put a tape line, I guess all the way across for the back before I just do the whole back piece up to here for all my items that go in here I have a three ton floor, jack. You can see where it sits. Um. I don't know, I feel, like it'd, be a cool little touch and I have a little bit of bed line left. We used five can total so far. This has like a quarter of it left, but the drop cloth work nicely as you can see how much over sprays they're cleaned up a little bit around, but uh really stoked on how this came out. I'Ll have a list of how much all this cost. But it's right around sixty five dollars, which I don't know where you guys are: that's probably a lot cheaper than you can get done anywhere else. That'S the whip I was talking about and then, if I did the whip, I would go completely over. So I'll probably bring you back here in a second again, I'm going to show you that list. If I haven't already of what you're going to need in the prices of them, okay guys, I said I was going to do the inside of the box, so I just took some crappy trash bags and went around so right now, I'm getting the whole rail on. That'S one really fit coat if it runs, it runs on the trash bags, so I mean it really did doesn't matter. I just kind of want to get it thick coat on there and be done with it. Um not sure I'm going to do the inside without getting everything covered, because that was kind of a pain but uh I'll. Keep you updated, huh, hey guys, it's a few days later in the toolbox is just looking awesome, so I ended up getting this rail done. I know I was going to say I was going to do the inside of the box, but I think I'm gon na hold off for a little bit on that. I think the box is great where it's at um, you know a thirty damaged and whatever on the bottom, so it really doesn't matter. If I get some more time later, this summer I'll go ahead and do it but uh, hopefully you can see in the Sun. If you see any of the striping on camera, it's actually just where um kind of dents are. It took me a second to figure that out from where that jack would I hit the back on corners and whatnot, but I'm loving it I'm going to have a sticker made right here. As you guys know, my license plates Mad Max I'll paint this black and have a white matte matte sticker painted on there, just because this is getting kind of chewed up alright. So I just went ahead and not sanded down with those little mixture of sixty and eighty grit sandpaper on that husky logo, just to get it nice and scuffed up now about to spray some gloss black on it. So when my light letters go on, they pop alright guys so there it is painted black with the Mad Max sticker. I'M not sure if I'm going to stick with that font in size, it does seem a little bit too big, but uh anyways. I think it looks good, so if you guys want to do this, I say go for it. It was about with the sticker. It was about a $ 79, so pretty inexpensive, pretty easy good project. So thanks for guys for watching and subscribe if the others [ Music, ], [ Applause, ]
