Start by painting the corners, under the bed rails, and other difficult-to-reach areas first with the paint brush. Then using the roller, apply one light coat to the front and side-vertical surfaces of the truck bed using long, overlapping strokes for best results. Allow at least 20 minutes dry time before applying an additional full wet coat. Aerosol bed liner paint is a good option for corners, hard-to-reach places and to have on hand for small touch ups.

Look for the Truck Bed Liner Kit, which includes a gallon of paint, roller frame and cover, scuff pad, tray and brush. The website is .
