I coughed up for the line-x and don't regret it, although my local guy was just $150. I'm bad to screw up whatever I do so I felt it was the best choice for me to pay and have it turn out the best. The line-x is supposed to have superior UV protectants and not fade like Rhino but I guess we'll see.

Round lights all the way, rectangular lights died in the 90's. The only non round lights that are sweet are the new square LED's from RIGID Industries.

Black bumpers and sliders on a Jeep will fit right in. I do like the color matched stuff if you have a limited and color matched stuff already.

I feel a detailed explanation coming on.

Does anyone know why Herculiner fades?

The LineX is pricy, but a great product. In my opinion, spend $30 and coat it yourself. I all my JCR stuff and cleaned it with acetone, then primed well with etching primer, then coated it with rattle can bed liner and everything has held up great! (Bumpers, rock sliders, skid plates). It is also easy to touch up if it chips.

As for the lights, I think round lights look goofy.

These pics are from in the Whiteshell actually, 2 hours east of Winnipeg, where we go wheeling. There is a decent amount of snow out there actually!

There was previous discussion here on UV permanence and some non-believers so I refrained from posting anything until I could provide proof

See thread here on another forum

Magnetman,

I just ordered some samples from your site.

What is the easiest way to prep bare metal?

Also, can this be applied over plastic? If so, what it the prep required?

Honestly I'd use upol raptor liner. I did my floor and jcr quarter armor, and I couldn't be happier.

Best prep for bare metal is to clean it and use epoxy primer first

For plastic, see this document

Monstaliner is made in the U.S.A.

A 2 quart kit is $51.90, mix only what you need. Unmixed material is good forever
