Glad to see you back and getting an update on this. Such a ton of work went into it! I had to go back to the start and read through it again since it had been a while. I find myself wondering why you decided to re-install fender flairs? I thought it looked better without them. And also the Line-X install. It did not look like they did any scuffing other than what you brought it which left the back bed wall not good for adhesion. Or did they do some and it just looked white still? Same thing for the bed rails? Looked like they went right over the clearcoat on that.

How is the seat holding up you re-did? There never were any interior pictures in this build of that after the fact.

Fender Flares: Eh...I don't know. I like them.

Line -X: I was concerned about that as well. They said it's not an issue and it won't peel off. 3 years later and it still looks like the day they sprayed it and not an indication anywhere of peeling. The liner is rock solid. I've been very pleased with the Line-X liner.

Seat: The seat is great. No issues at all. The only issue I have now is my headliner is starting to peel, ever so slightly up near the front windshield. That will probably be the next project. Since I'm self quarantined at home right now, I'll snap some pics of the interior tomorrow and post them up.

Well....it is your truck...so we'll let the flairs go...haha.

So if you went in with a new truck do they not scuff it at all now?

I honestly don't know. What I do remember is that they said "not to worry, it won't peel off" when I questioned them about them about spraying the top rails, but once it got in the booth, who knows if they might have done something in there.
