First on my list of things to do was to have the bed sprayed. I had every intention of taking it somewhere and having it sprayed, however, I got the wild idea that I could just do it myself and save some money. So I sanded it down top, bottom and sides and prepped it. Then off to Lowes I went and came home $45 worth of Rustoleum spray in bed liner. Needless to say (cause I know you guys are laughing right now) it didn't work like I thought!!! It actually turned out very nice, just wasn't very thick and I wanted it not just for protection, but for some sound proofing as well. So off to the PROFESSIONAL I went to have it re-done. Lesson #1 learned! haha!

Sand, sand and more sanding....and yes, even my wife chipped in to help sand!!

Dove hunting, an occasional deer hunt and just hauling my beer! Our dove lease is 1000 acres of farm land so when it rains it is REALLY soft mud and walking sucks! It's mainly just a toy for me and my boys.
