Mine are painted flat black with truck bed coating. I think they look pretty good.

That'* why I did it. I originally used hi-temp bbq paint. Just recently I went to the truck bed coating, as that'* what I used on the front scoops. I like the finish MUCH better.

Bill, do you think that bedliner paint would work well on the inside of wheel wells? I'm just guessing, but I think it may hold up better than the rubber undercoating.

Your inner liner is flexible. I don't think it would last. Rubber undercoating is the best, but lay it on thick.

Pardon the dirt, but here'* the latest of my tips:

Ok Bill, thanks. So far my rubber undercoating has held up well, considering how much salt and dirt has battered the wells all winter.
