Faded Fender Flares - Cover All?

Anyone tried Cover All High Gloss Tire Dressing Aerosol on their fender flares? It was recommended to me by a fellow jeeper recently so strongly that he gave me a free can.

I gave it a try today.

On jeep 1 I have original 2003 flares that are close to white. They are also covered with spots of extreme whiteness.

On jeep 2 there are aftermarket flares of an unknown age and brand. They were still pretty gray.

The original flares darkened up a LOT but the spots became more visible. On the aftermarket ones they darkened up to something like new. Remember that these flares were never black, but very dark gray, which is NOT the same thing at all when compared side by side.

I think that for a non-wipe tire dressing that is spray-and-walk-away this did a respectable job. The original color seemed to become much more visible to me, the only real disappointment being the spots on the OEM decade-old flares.

And I do not care what the can says, I do not want this stuff on my paint, so I wiped pretty well about a minute after application.

I did not think to take direct before and after shots. But I have some shots of both vehicles when washed with the flares looking exactly like they did about an hour ago. I can pot these if you like.

I am mostly curious about whether I just ruined my paint or melted my flares or whatever. Anyone else try this stuff?



If this stuff is a mistake I can always rewash both jeeps, I guess...

I don't use oil based products on plastic, rubber, or interior parts. I just don't like the "greasy" look or feeling much. In fact I usually don't do much for "looks" on any machine I have but I did paint my stock flares with bedliner a while back. Previous owner had put done nasty crap on them with a brush (of all things) and it was peeling a lot.
