So I recently purchased a 2012 Bright White Sahara. It had a cracked rear passenger side fender flare (the guys wife ran over a trash can apparently), and I was looking to get that replaced and color matched.
I was quoted $470 for them to order the new flare and paint it Bright White to match.
I know the OEM replacement fender flare cost $199 on quadratec.com and I can buy the mopar 5oz spray cans. Quadratec description says the fender flare is a smooth texture for Sahara Applications.
Would I be ok to buy the replacement flare and just spray it myself? If so, how many 5oz cans would that take, any ideas? Or is there a place to buy a bigger can? I just want the flare to look like the original, I don't want to do it myself and have it stick out like a sore thumb.
Also, there is a small paint chip thats beginning to rust (it on the drivers door right near the window, looks like a rock chip about the size of a pea). If i touch that up should I use something to get the rust off first?
Any input is appreciated!
