Black Line X or color match front bumper??

I am seriously considering having my front bumper/lower valance done in Line-X. I am getting alot of rock damage to the paint and one area has even got a half dollar size area where the paint has chipped away on the last trip to Los Angeles.

The delima I am having is one, will it even look good?

Two, would it look ok in just black or should I color match. Color matching adds about 300.00 to the price of a truck bed....I am guessing its not much less than that for a bumper also.

Touch up jobs to the bumper are running me about $100 a shot and I have done that twice already. Its about $350.00 to paint the valance. If I do that I would also do the clear vinyl film over it - thats a good $300 just to have that installed.

I don't think the Line-X would match the style of your truck. 3M makes a clear vynil that comes in differant sizes that goes over the paint. It works well and helps soften the hits on the front end. Most good body shops can get and apply the 3M.
I think you'll be much happier with the new paint and 3M treatment.:glasses:
I think the texture is fine on 4x4's, but not on a street custom. Our bodyshop guys did trucks fronts and side rockers with the 3M. If its done right you can't even see the 3M.
