Default My 2011 F150 build

Picked up a different set of wheels for company wheels, thought I'd post it up. I do not imagine it will be a built anything like my '08, but will get some attention



'11 screw w/ ecoboost. I am quite surprised how much smoother it rides and brakes in comparison to my '08. However, there is no comparison in power from the '08 to the '11



Shiny dash ftl



Started doing bedliner. Some swear by line-x, however, at $450 an application, I'll gladly spend $100 tops on materials and do it myself



While we are at it, let's do these sill plates. No one likes these scratched, and in the MN winters, additional traction ftw.

Tomorrow depending on my mood, I'll do a full detail on the paint and also see about this shiny dash.

Very nice looking truck. I'm looking for bed liner currently. Which one did you choose?

Herculiner. I did my '08 sills and bed with it, no complaints.

The kit comes with a green scratchy. Give this to your wife and use 80 grit on a palm sander. This is much faster. Instructions call for a scuff, so we don't need to go to bare steel. Hit it with a leaf blower, wipe down with acetone and go to town. It's stupid easy. Since it also adheres to itself, you can make repairs at the drop of a hat should you manage to gouge or slice through it.

Most complaints with the DIY products is lack of surface preparation.

Detailed today and applied wax. I don't think this thing has seen this much attention in 1 pass...a lot of mineral deposits and water spots.

I'd love to see some more detailed, close-up pics of the finished bed and thresholds!

How much material did it take for the whole job?

Awesome, thanks!

Does it turn out better with more than one coat?

Yes. Some spots got 3. With the bed being red some spots are harder to cover. I used less with my black truck
