    What's up fellas, I've been contemplating on going for full coverage on my Tundra with LineX. I know it's a huge step but I don't really have much of a thought process on the do'so and don't's. I love the blacked out look and I want to keep it, but the gloss black 202 is impossible to keep looking good with scratches and everything else. It's good from far but when you get close, I hate the way it looks. I don't really want to wrap it because I live in the desert in California and it's hot as hell and the truck won't fit in the garage. Just weighing my options and I don't necessarily want to start out on a new truck. If you have pics then post'em up so I can check it out. Any help or constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated.

    +1, I had thought about doing it to my first gen, paint was pretty bad on it. The new one I think it would be cool if I was off-road more than on, but it's my daily so I don't see a use for it. Although, it would be nice to never have to worry about rock chips, door dings, or any minor damages with the Line-x :thumbsup: There's also the the kevlar coating I've seen Starwood Motors use on the vehicles they build

    The scratches are killing me. I can make it look as awesome as I want but they will always be there and it's aggravating

    I thought about that but I think this bad boy is going to my son. It was my first truck brand new with 4 miles on it so I'm gonna keep it as long as I possibly can.

    Do it! I just had my bed done and it came out awesome. The premium coating has quite a bit of gloss, not sure if itll last but your truck will look badass

    Haha. That'd be nice. I have a newborn and work tomorrow. But the wife is planning something and I think Vegas is involved so that'd be awesome. It's about 4 hours away

    It will be more difficult to wash. You'll basically have to pressure wash it every time.

    I took that into account and luckily I have one. Not sure about the process though. Might be worth looking into.
