    for short, quick answers, a poll would've been a better option.

    I'd go line-x.

    I used herculiner on mine (poor man's line-x haha) and it's already wearing through and I can see some surface rust underneath. Gonna have to strip it off this spring and have it sandblasted and done right next time.

    and x2 on the poll idea.

    Personally I rattle canned it with hammered rustolium. Doesn't look bad and easy to touch up when I get hit by a rock or branch or something. Wouldn't want to spend a lot of money and get a chip going down the highway and not be able to repaint/repair it.
