We sanded the entire bed with 80--grit, wiped it down with Eastwood Pre--Paint Prep, and sprayed it with Duplicolor Truck Bed Coating. The Duplicolor product sprays on thick and leaves a nice, slightly textured, just--right--glossiness finish. However, spray it from too far away and it gets very rough and flat--toned, then cargo scrapes it shiny and it looks bad. With proper application, it looks right and touches up easily. It took five cans to do the complete bed.
