i have this stupid paint crack developing on my truck thats starting to spread. i don't want to put money into a paint job till like next year because i want to lower the truck soon, but i don't want to get rust. i think I'm gonna spot fix the paint for now and cover it up with a bed stripe. only thing is... this crack is on the front of the bed not the back. i have never seen a bed stripe on the front of a bed but i have seen tons on the back of beds, so a stripe there would be kinda different... what do you guys think...satin black decal of course, i don't want it to stand out and i like my all blackness.

the crack...

its not the only paint flaw (its a 10 year old truck) but its right in the middle of a panel and you cant miss seeing it. at first i put a line of touch up paint over it and it looked fine but the paint above and below the crack is like starting to lift off the truck and peel itself away.

I'm just trying to get her back into top shape where i can be fully proud of her again. i love that truck. between the new tires/brakes/calipers/hubs/and ball joints she is driving like a brand new truck. i just need to fix a few paint issues and get the engine bay looking good.

I need to get my ball joints done on the upper driver side. It is clunking on little bumps now.

I would do it till you can get it painted. I also like it all black, so the stripes will be just a band aid till you paint it.
