Tough Decision With Deck Lid and Bumper

I am pretty sure I want to black out the center section of the lower rear valance, possibly the center top of the rear bumper (indention), and the rear of the trunk. The delimma, paint or honeycomb for the deck lid. The bottom will get paint. I am not a fan of vinyl. The question is in the type of paint.

The honeycomb looks great, especially if the emblems are retained. I do not like that it makes the tail lights look as if they have been shoved into the rear quarters. It does not appear to be as flush as my perfectionist brain wants it to be. I could be wrong.

If I go with paint, it will be matte or satin. I would likely use an OEM style trim paint. However, the thought has crossed my mind to add texture using a truck bed liner spray. The bad part there is the removal if I decide to do something else later. Spray liner is a pain to remove if applied correctly.

No, I do not want to try plasti dip. I am not a fan of the spray and peel applications.

I like both so Im no help. Sometimes the honeycomb one bothers me and sometimes it doesn't. I think some fit better than others. But I planned on the honeycomb for my 03 but I do like the idea of a satin black too.

"I don't want something removeable. But I'm not sure how I'll remove what I'm about to do..." pick a side dude :laugh: Bed liner... no.

Dip it, decide if you like the look and then have it done in paint. Or dip it, decide you don't, remove it and try something different until you are happy.

You can get the vinyl wraps from AM to and that will look just as good as paint, and you can get the shiny black or matte black.. Beats plasti dip at least. I plasti dipped mine and actually like it but it does peel and is hard to clean..
