Fender flares install, and colormatched / bedlined

I just got some fender flares to install on my step side truck. They are already painted sonic blue, but the rear two are pretty badly scuffed up. I was going to just sand/prime and paint them my self with some color matched paint in a spray can, but Brian's (BlkTremor02) truck looks so awesome with the flares line-xed. Do you thing i should have mine done, or keep them matched?

Also i am having trouble with the front flares matching up, lol i would have thought the rear one woulf have given me trouble..
under the fender lip is there a gap between the flare? kinda hard to explain,

^
the 4 tab things under the fender, does the flare match right against the bottom on the fender lip, or dose it have a gap?

anyone understand? haha

I would say line-x, but I'm not sure how that would look blue and black.

Mine are a combination of both. The poll only allows two choices? I posted in the other topic about the flares that I have mine partially coated.

It will be blue and gray after a year or two...one downside of any spray-in. My Line-X is still black at about 6 months old, but not as dark as it was.

I vote color matched! I think that will look alot better.. If you did not get the edge and had a chrome bumper I might say line-x however keep the monochrome look and paint them the same color.

It's the oilyness of it. Dust will stick to an oily surface. I have found that Armor All Ultimate Clean is better about this. It doesn't leave surfaces as greasy. 303 Protectant is the best you can get, it just isn't cheap and sometimes has to be ordered if you can't find a store that carries it.

Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but any more opinions? i'm still undecided, but i'm leaning toward having them bedlined. I want to try install them over spring break (next week)

No opinion, I took mine off. They were trashed pretty bad from rocks and such. Id say coat them with rhinoliner or even strip them down to the bare plastic, THEN coat them with undercoating or something as such.
