if you like it thats cool...

personally though, I couldn't imagine doing that to my truck...I mean it looks kinda of cool, but washing it would be a PITA on top of that it seems to take away from the smoothness of the truck...

for those of you up north it would probably help with rocks and sand and what not from screwing up paint...

gratz2u on something neat for the truck though

I think that Line-X job is pretty sweet. I'm planning on something similar this fall. Additionally, I'm going to pull out my interior and have my floorboards line-x'd. I had the same thing done to my last Jeep and it was really nice. I never had to worry about tracking mud and dirt onto the carpet.

Definitely looks sweet for sure... But, be careful, the sun WILL fade the black, so you'll have to use a UV treatment of some kind... 303 Aerospace possibly...

The lower front facia and flares of a Tacoma are LINE-X'd (with Nason for no fading) in my last post just before this one.

99% of the time, whenever we apply LINE-X to the exterior (excluding the bed), we use either Xtra or Nason for no fading.

We applied color matched LINE-X to my father-in-law's Nissan Altima about 2 years ago. They drive it all over the country. Seriously, today, it looks as good as the first day we sprayed it. No rock chips whatsoever.

Yesterday, we applied white LINE-X to a portion of my wife's GMC Yukon's front bumper, she's tired of rock chips. I'll take some pics.

I'm not a paying forum supporter so I can't post prices. :cry:

Crummy camera, I have a much better one now!:)

Looks real nice... Could you tell me where I can find out more about Nason ? I think I've seen the Xtra before...

Dupont Nason is a single stage urethane based automotive paint and is available at any professional paint store that carries Dupont products. Looking at Nason and Xtra, you would not be able to tell the difference, they look the same, but Xtra is more durable and is more appropriate for truck beds.

Man Do I like that! :tu: 123 why don't you open a franchise up north??? :D

Seeing how I just picked up a Tacoma, I've notice the color-matched fender flares look like that got the short end of the stick in the factory painting line. I bet this would fix this in a jiffy. Would have to go on a search though since no Line-X in Vermont :mad: Oh well, if by chance do you have any impulse red color matched samples? :ts:
