She now sits with 95,000 miles making that about 40K hard miles since the 1st post. I few months ago I got some body damage to the driver door rocker panel (went to back into a tight spot and didn't see a 2 ft high decorative wall, totally my bad). I hired a guy who came right out to my site and paid him cash without looking at the thing (Was busy running the job). Guy did rough work with a paint that was a darker shape of red and proceeded to turn itself blackish and ugly.
My plan was to have the rocker panels Line-X'ed on both sides to not only cover ugliness, but give my truck a pretty sick 2 tone black and red contrast as well. Unfortunately, I don't have nearly as much disposable income in the summer here as the $400+ electric bills kick my butt this time of year.
I'm trying the Plastidip route. Here's layers 1 and 2 so far. Also in retrospect working in the shop in 112 degree heat is less fun than coming up with a grand for Line X.
If it holds up well than great. If not it is a reasonable temporary pretty cool solution for now as I'm tired of seeing the door blemish.
I don't care how many layers it takes, the plan is to apply in very very light pass overs. I have 8 cans total so maybe 4 for each side.
