looking for pics of Line-X'd rocker panels

I have an oxford white f250 CC. How would it look with the bottom 10 inches lined?

I would not like it for no other reason than it is hard to clean. I base this on my Son's experience, he did exactly what you are proposing and it ALWAYS looks dirty.

I did mine with RHINO lining about 3 years ago.

Looked AWESOME for the first year and after the second I started to notice the top shiny coat was coming off. Brought it back to the shop in white bear lake, MN and they told me that was normal.

I heard line-x offers a lifetime shine product now specifically for this application where people want the shine from day one and last forever. I have been meaning to swing by the line-x shop to see what they can do for me.

If I were to do it all over again, I would go Line-x with the lifetime shine warranty. Don't even bother with rhino lining.

Just my experience, currently have red truck with black bottom (its got a blochy look now, frickin sucks)

sent an email into corporate with attached photo and talked with another rhino rep nearby, he is telling me to wait and see what corporate says. But he is also at a loss of words what to do.

lesson learned for this guy.

Lets just say I hope to get hit by a car on all panels, so insurance can buy me new ones, lol.

Personally I'd just pay to have it sand blasted then take it over to line-x and get their "lifetime warranty shine" job done. Little pricey to have it done but I'm such a stickler for how my vehicles look haha.
