Faded TJ fender restoration - Plastidip

Firstly this project's total cost was $20 and is tiny compared to the other threads here so if I've posted this in the wrong section please feel free to move it.

Recently bought a 97 TJ, which as you can imagine has faded fenders and to make it worse there seemed to be a lot of marks and chips on it. I googled a few options on how to bring the color on the fenders back and there didnt seem to be that many options.

The back-to-black stuff seemed to fade from what I've read. And I really didn't want to handle a blow torch, I'm terrible with match-sticks forget a blow-torch haha.

All I did really is wash the fenders, then wiped them down, waited for it to dry, added some masking tape and sprayed the Plastidip. Here are some before and after pics, sorry about the quality: indoors + crapberry.
