below the middle body line

i have a can of the stuff laying around. roller and everything. just never used it. should i? or would it be too much. on the positive side it would cover up a lot of my scratches i have from wheeling the truck so much..

He meant from the Middle of the door down. in that case NO, dont get trigger happy. I would DEF do the frame of the truck and as much as you can under the body..I painted everything, even the fender wells...It makes a huge difference. Do that first at least. I wouldnt do your doors man. Rocker panels should be cool though.

I say no. Too much black going on. However, Just the rockers alone might be pretty cool. It will make the truck look longer and slimmer in the middle.

do the rockers, then do your grill/hood to match, so its the same texture. instead of bedlined sides, then flat black hood.
