Looks great. :thumbs:

If you don't mind saying, how much do you have in the project including tape, sandpaper, everything?

Around $125, the Bed Armor was $99, the tape was around $10, $5 for sandpaper and Uncle Sam's share. I only used about 1/3rd of the material too, so really, I guess it only cost me about $40.

Looks great man you should do the bumpers now also

I thought about doing the bumpers, but I kind of like the chrome on the black truck. I guess if they start getting pitted up or showing any rust, I will do them too.

True it's alot cheaper than spray. My rocker alone cost 400 due to the amount of masking with high pressure spray liner

For Line-X, I got quoted $500 for the rockers alone, $750 for the rockers and "flares" (like I did it), and $900 if I had the UV protection added. The Ultimate Linings place phone quoted $1200 but didn't even really want to look at it. Just doing the rockers wasn't really an option since most of the chipping/flaking was up on the "flares".

We just had the whole safari top done on the '70 Rover for $1000. Color matched to the original limestone white color. But part of that was prepping the aluminum.

Well, I got a shot of the finished product this morning. Here you go:

I am really happy with the way it turned out. Even my wife said she liked it, which is surprising since she wasn't real happy about me doing it in the first place. I guess the test will be how well it holds up, but it really can't be any worse than the paint was doing, and I can at least touch this stuff up any time. This pickup has some of the softest paint I have ever seen......

That looks pretty darn good. :thumbs:
