Question for body/paint guys, Off road Fusion bumper coating

I ordered my Fusion bumper bare and I am going to have it LineX-ed... What the heck should I do about protecting the areas that are going to be difficult to spray with LineX or paint? Looks like it would be hard to protect the area behind the mounting face, wouldn't make sense to have LineX back there. What should be used?



That is the mounting face, it's kind of boxed in and looks difficult to coat, but I am no body guy!

Just use quality materials and paint it to protect it from possible rusting. If you are worried about rust issues use something called KBS Coatings, similar to POR15 but I like it much better.

When I had the bumper on my 00 coated, the Linex dealer had a fixed price for bumpers and they sprayed the back. The down side is it made it a bit harder to install as I had to trim some Linex off the bolt slots. If your really worried, have the bumper hot dipped galvinized before it's sprayed.
