Doesn't prevent rust on the back side or dents on the front side. Creates more work for the body guy if a panel needs repair. For a new car, clear bra or wrap is the way to go if you feel like you need to protect the paint. Bed liner is good on fender flares because they're removable.Line x is permanent ,but industructable.
We'll still be waiting a while, this years SEMA will be all prototypes. We don't know the Line X/ FORD relationship. FORD will not give access to aftermarketers that may compete with their own accessories line.This should put to rest that we won’t be waiting years for accessories. The thought that 3rd party items won’t get designed until they have a unit bought off the production line was misguided in my opinion. This demonstrates what will be the case for many of Fords partners and 3rd party suppliers. With today’s technologies available, 3D models are supplied well in advance of customer production. That’s not to say they provide this information to everyone but to targeted partners. The information sharing is bi-directional so it does not come without effort and management. Where physical models are required for processes other than size can be had as shown above.
