Man for 100 I woulda got mine color matched... Body shop wanted 600 minimum and that's if I prepped it before taking it in. Can't get color match paint here to do it myself.

you don't have windows? Dude, blind spots are pet enough with windows, I don't know if I could drive a camper without them.
And I used to love plasty dip. But anymore I don't care too much for it. Looks terrible close-up, they always had problems with it starting to peel and places.

Here's the texture. Shot with my iphone this morning. I can try to get another one when theres more light out. Imo I like it better than paint because it has a rough enough texture to give the truck a rougher look while not interrupting the smoothness of the paint.

So I picked up this topper over the weekend. It being a dark grey and my truck black I presumed to just spray I black. Do my rear bumper needs sprayed. Long story short I am debating on keeping it grey and do my step bars, rear bumper, and lower valance up front grey. Any opinions?

I think it would look pretty sharp. Trying to get her ready for the trip to South Dakota in the summer. The topper does need a few small things to fix it up. Other than that it's in pretty good shape.
