16. After the paint had dried for about 24 hours, the cargo box was reinstalled on the chassis using a bed-mounting kit from LMC Truck. This kit includes eight new bolts and nuts. At this point, all of the new paint was laboriously wet-sanded. This process involves hand-sanding all of the new paint with 1,200-grit wet/dry sandpaper followed by hand-sanding with 2,000-grit wet/dry sandpaper. After all of this, the new paint is sanded yet again with 3,000-grit sandpaper using a DA. All of this sanding is what removes any "orange peel" and it gives the new paint a mirror-like finish.
