Does Rhino-lining de-value a truck...

When its applied to the outside of a vehicle?

This looks abominable, no snow-man pun intended:

I think it would be better if it were a military vehicle you know like olive drab.

Good Gravy thatís Ugly! That's right up there with Martins unfortunate discovery:

We should have a blooper section or possibly a "What not to do" section on this website to prevent such tragic events!

Oh my god! I love the comments like: "straight body panels"....


Who gives a crap! You destroyed a fine rig!

But, the only plus I see is they won't ever need to worry about brush scratches damaging the paint...

Not very easily, then you would need to repaint it after you got it off.

I thought Rhino-lining was supposed to line the tub/bed -- not the outer paint. Ugh!

I've seen few trucks here that had the same thing done but in darker color and It looked fine. However, those trucks were POS and they used that as it was cheaper than painting the truck.

That is really scary looking...almost makes the Defender look like it's made of paper mache. The Defender pinata...ha! However, I agree that if it were painted olive drab it might look better.

Then you could atleast claim it was an anti chemical warfare coating.

What the hell is with those lights on the cage? Looks like Marty the martian!

THose look like cheap decals that might come off with a little effort prior to your rhino-lining appt.
