Have any of you painted the inside of this style bed side before installing it?I was just thinking of an easier way than painting it on the truck.What if its painted and cleared...the weld is on the bottom of the truck on the pinch weld for the most part isnt it?Once the bed is welded in,tape off and seam seal then paint with base clear without unmasking the seam sealer?

I would probably install it THEN paint it. That's an awful big part to try to install after it's painted and with the welding you could easily damage it somewhere and need to paint it again.
