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 think it would look good although your pickup has much more of a "city" look to it so it may throw off the overall appearance of it. You might try finding someone who can photo shop what it would look like so you can get a good idea.

This link may be of interest to you, I have considered doing my front bumper (scratches and chips), rocker panels (bare metal showing, would like to know how previous owner managed that), and rear bumper (chrome is developing issues) .

I think I would stick with black as the color matched stuff just looks faded to me. This F250 shows that very well

If you decide to go with the line-x be sure to post pictures as well as what it cost you.
