The matte textured finish was not a problem to paint with the pearl tricoat that was used to match my truck. The flares did not require trimming as some other reviews mentioned, they just were not putting any effort into pushing the flares tight against the truck. Mounting would be easier with 2 people. One person to push the flares tight while the other screws them in from the wheel well. But I was able to do it alone, it was not difficult. It took me about 4 hours total including mounting the rubber and fake bolts. 2 people could get it done in 2 hours easy.
