OK, so it's been slow going on this box. I've only been able to squeeze in a few min here and there but it's all starting to pay off.

looking good for sure, specially for a first time. I'm liking the box hanging from the ceiling for painting too, very nice setup. should look good when it is finished. Not sure if I like the white but I'll wait to see the final product.

Only the port and design will be white, the rest is just primer...

SPY

I think it was like 1/4".

I'm pretty happy with the outcome for my 1st attempt.

It looks good, we'll see how it holds up. Very easy to use and hides the screw holes and joints very well.


I found a spray on bedliner (in a can) that I think I'm going to try for my next build.
