All my Line-X guy would have to do is tape, scuff and spray.
Just curious of what you mean by stripped truck? you said you still had them do the scuffing, i thought that was most of the labor involved? but ya if i could have had it for $1500 after doin most of the labor i would have saved up abit longer to get line-x and maybe they would have been able to fix my bed while they were at it.
