dctucker,

It cost me $100 for the grizzly grip (1 gallon). It took 1 leisurely day to complete. I think it would be worth the effort to do. Of course if you do the floor it would only make sense to paint the console as well as it would then look out of place.

I used Rust Oleum spray cans for the console. This was pretty easy too. Of course everything still takes time..... I am however extremely happy with the results.

The deck looks seriously good. I'm going to be doing this soon to my Osprey; hopefully it'll look as good as that

Hi Tim,

You might want to look into doing it with a roller it comes out even and very grippy. I was told to do it in two coats, 1st then let dry, then do the second. The roller is made out of a kind of rough textured sponge rather than the fine hair bristle like rollers. I just did the final coat yesterday and the floor is so much better than that black grip tape stuff you can buy in strips. This is one of the easiest and worthwhile improvements I've done so far.

Good luck.
