SWEET!!!!!! Really nice looking treads and that green is poppin!! I actually just put a new set on my sears tractor. Had a little bit of an issue with the adhesive. I used 2 part epoxy in the past with bad results(peeled paint, didn't adhere very well). I ended up using liquid nails, but that left bumps and was somewhat messy. Ended up touching up a few areas that had lifted on the seams with crazy glue.

Are your treads made out of hard plastic or are they rubber? What did you use to adhere them? They look great. I had been looking around for a tough two sided adhesive that I could have traced while I was cutting the treads. Might have been a lot easier!

I would be really tempted to do the complete underside in that stuff too.

Here's the prep ! Since my 175 had been painted a few crappy times I had to go to bare metal.
The warning is bedliner will stick to bare metal or factory ( never repainted ) paint ( that's why they bedliner a new truck ) and why I had to put the bedliner foot pads on before repainting the deck.

Sure LTG!! but my garage is unheated and I suspend all reno's by cold weather. AND don't forget this is my Toy 175, Rusty 175 is going to be a much bigger challenge !! ( the whole problem with Rusty's starting and no lights and no PTO... Yep Ignition switch filled with ............ wait for it...............
RUST:fing20: Switched over Toy's ignition and everything came to life..

What does it take to be able to paint the bed liner also?

Looks great, by the way.

That looks great. I had an auto body shop redo my deck on a 322 I owned. Your looks just as good. Put a good coat of polywax on both the top and bottom surfaces before putting it back on to help it last longer.

This is my high tech spray booth, I need to paint sitting down for my back.

The bedliner comes in rattle can like the [email protected] (TSC). Just tape off the area and spray away.
I did 2 coat 1 day 2 coat the next day. used up the rest of the can to touch up the inside of my Model 50 and 80 trailers

You know after polishing it's going to be sealed with KLASSE sealant thanks to Brian

Did you paint the deck with rattle cans too or do you use a paint gun?
