I like that. What product did you use?

Rust-Oleum bed liner. Ive found prepping by scuffing and sanding, then one coat at 1.5 feet wait 3-5 minutes, then 2-5 dustings from around 2 to 2.5 feet gives a nice texture and color. And if you let it bake in the sun for a day or two this stuff is insanely hard and strong

Thank you. I had taken mine apart earlier this year and tried a compound that I bought off Amazon and it didn't darken it like I wanted it to, so I may try this.

Make sure to get all the compound off. They are usually snake oil wax. I tried a few until I figured that out. I've used this for a while on another vehicles grill and for well over a year it's been good n strong with no fade to speak of. Best of all it's about 7$ a can. Make sure to actually shake it well and I tip the can upside down for that first coat..... It's the strong, the dustings are the pretty. I did the spoiler and bed rails too. I think someone at Nissan actually thought grey was a good idea.

I appreciate the regional differences for terminology. I was asking a tool box maker whether their product would work with a "camper shell". He said it works with "toppers". Thinking a "topper" was closer to a tonneau cover, I asked what that was.

Heck, I bought my "camper shell" from a place called Camper Shell Land.

You know, I never considered using bed liner. Makes sense though...takes years to fade and it gives traction. I use Stoner's Trim Shine. The look lasts 2-4 weeks and takes 5 minutes to apply. When I stop being lazy I'll repaint it with bedliner. The other options were trim and bumper paint, regular paint for plastic, or plasti-dip, all of which seemed like they'd wear or peel off.

Ok so you all know the semi useless little tray/cubby above our radios right? I've been looking at remote controlled 360° spot lights, but I know that will result in excessive noise when mounted on the roof... What about right there in that c Ideally a manually controlled one would be used. These seem to have a handle on the back and could be made to work manually I'd think. But also being able to turn it on and off remotely from outside would be neat too. I can already turn all of my lights one and off from a key fob .

If I understand correctly, you want to install a bright light, mounted inside on the dashboard? If that's correct, you pretty much need to make a bezel and put it flush against the windshield. Other than that, you will get an insane amount of glare that will make looking out the windshield very difficult.

Funny. There is a shop up the road from my work called "Toppers and more"...…. So... YMMV.....
