Blackety black!!!!!!!

So I'm trying to figure out how I can get my muffler back to black I was wondering also if anyone has put rhinoline on theirs cause I was thinking that too. My fenders are also getting grey so I might rhinoline those too...

I have a question why does the way your muffler look matter? Its under your jeep and should be covered with dirt grime and of course mud. Take a heat gun to the fenders and theyll clean right up.

Yep. I would think just about ANY high-heat paint would work.

Go check at Vatozone, they're bound to have what you're looking for.....

If you use the Jeep off road the muffler's just going to get dirty anyway.

For the bumpers I would have them powercoated for best results because paint won't work as well or last as long

I found a bedliner spray paint at my local auto store. Scuffed my fenders up a little and spray painted them with 2 or 3 coats then covered them in a clear coat. Took 1 can per set of fenders at 8.99 a can but I thought it turned out well. Gives them a rubbery coating for protection with a good look as well.

You can always touch up the paint.

I have and it didn't last very long at all. I got the spray on bedliner previously mentioned and went back over them with that. They look much better now and do still have that nice texture to them. That is the cheaper route to go IMO because I know I will have to do it again eventually as it starts to wear off. I think it's due to a lack of UV protection that caused the herculiner to fade.

And maybe a little operator error as well, I'm sure I didn't properly treat the fenders before I Herc'd them. The first time a heavy coat of mud was applied and dried for a few days, the herculiner came off in clumps when I pressure washed it.

bedliner spray

Here are a few before and after pics of the bedliner spray that I used. The liner spray gives it a rubber feel as well.

Before









After

It's holding up well. I wish I had used a textured paint now though. I just prefer that over a smooth look.
