Icon10 Line-X'ed Exterior Accents

Alright, so I just got my bed sprayed over the rail this morning with Line-X. I also am replacing my front valance, since mine is cracked. I was considering removing my fender flares, and having them Line-X'ed, along with my new front valance. Has anybody done this, anything like it, or have an opinion on the subject?

Thanks!
Marshall

I thought it would be an idea that had to have been done a few times before but I can't find many pictures of it.

It will look awesome! Go for it. I'm getting mine bed redone with UV Al's Liners, my fenderwells, the bottom of the truck, and my step rails. Can't wait to see your pics!

My new Line-X bed, over the rail. Sprayed extra thick (and extra sexy).

I talked to the linex place here last summer. I inquired about doing the rockers, bumpers and fenders and they wanted some $600 or $800, I forget which. It was ridiculous to me so I never did it. I may change my mind about it some day, I think it would look good with dark shadow gray linex all around the bottom.

I think it would look good and hold up well, but I'm not sure I would personally bother with it being that your fenders look to be a flat black plastic. If they were painted I would be more worried about chipping and stuff. But it's your cash, and I do think it would look nice.

Yeah the price is definitely ridonkulous. I am trying to be really patient in order to be able to buy the best of everything, so that in the end my truck will be perfect!

And yeah, it doesn't look bad now since I have the black flares. But it is just BARELY a big enough color difference for me to think "hm. I wish those matched.."

i recently had my rockers line-x'ed and asked them about how it holds to plastic and they said it will hold ok but not good on very flexible or pliable plastic. he advised me not to get my flares and valance done as it would most likely chip and not stick well.

I have been meaning to get pics up of the line-x and 06 flares but i had a hub assembly go out and the truck has been down.
