Paint is great and all, but I found this dye on autogeek.net great stuff, dyed all of my F150's faded plastics, turned out amazing, then it sat in the sun for 7 months in 29 while I was gone, still looks good. I am planning on doing it to the 250 as soon as I get home, stuff is great, just lots of prep, and wear rubber gloves. Its also fairly expensive, but its worth it!

Hey y'all sorry for the late reply. I actually used it this weekend on the F150...it's called Showroom New. You can get it at autodetailingsolutions.net. It's a bit expensive, but definately worth it. Also less is more, many people use too much and it layers on too thick. Just tape everything off and use a foam brush. Make sure you wear gloves! Hope this helps!

If i pop my bed rail trim off, there won't be any holes under there that the trim clips to right? Obviously there are the holes for straps. Was wanting to run the line-x on the rails in addition to the bed.

Ton of holes... it is real hard to get it off of there without destroying it. They are not that much brand new, like 70 bucks from Ford. Might be worth it to look into it.
