Question painting the bottom half of truck

my truck is black with the two tone and grey on the bottom, i want to do the grey all black but my body shop said they won't be able to match the color and they would have to paint the entire truck, the other thing he said was paint the bottom part and then do a black pinstripe same size as the stock stripe but black to break up the paint line? does this sound right i aint a body guy????

Yeah, its right. To paint that part on a truck that is X years old, is impossible to match, due to the fading of paint. The pinstripe will create a breaking point between the new paint and the old, and leave it less noticable. I had some douche kid throw an egg at my truck, and apparently something in the egg etched the paint. I will have to paint the whole door and part of the cab too . After the $1000 estimate, I decided it's not worth it to fix

You could look into 'lining' it . Some don't like the look though, but you'd get protection, and a different look than most trucks you'll see on a regular basis

Yeah, and if you have a shop that your truck will fit in, I would look into Al's liner. I like the user friendlyness of it, and the look should be comparable to a Line-X, but MUCH cheaper

Yeah I would look into lining. I have seen some trucks that the lining looks good on especially black trucks. I would look into LineX as a company, buddy of mine has it on his off road rig and it hasnt faded or chipped.

The cool thing about the Al's liner, is that you can add any color pigment you want, whereas the Line-X you only can choose from the colors they offer. Line-x may be a better product, but I don't know . I'm thinking about using Al's on my from and rear bumpers :noc:
