looks like the rino liner I have on my truck, But I like the way it looks, If it stops debris from chipping your bumper great. I have had to sand and paint my bumper twice from debris chips.

Well, it's definitely unique. But, I'm not sure...it just kinda looks out of place.

Personally, I think it's an interesting idea, but if you keep it like that it needs something to tie that into the rest of the car... Maybe the mirrors or something like that... just so it doesn't look like it was messed up...

I saw something VERY similar sprayed on the entire lower half of some guy's Wrangler yesterday. On THAT it looked good.

^ You're kidding right?

I'd rather drive with no bumper than drive with my bumper looking like that. My bumper is fiberglass, and the paint hasn't cracked nor has it chipped excessively. All he needs is to apply flex agent so that when the bumper flexes a bit, the paint won't crack.

That looks horrible man!

I just saw the nose of a corvette done the same way. I think it will grow on you. Give it some time, you can always have it re-done.
