Fender Flare Paint Removal?

Hey guys, my dad was pressure washing our jeep and he got too close to the fender flares and chipped some of the paint off. Does anybody know how i could get the paint off of them without having to buy/use paint stripper chemicals? Thanks!

Those ARE YOUR OPTIONS. Unless you want to Sand the Paint off and also change
the Texture of the Flares as well, in doing so.

Take the paint off? if you wanna make a change, the only thing should be adding some plastidip to CHANGE the color.

Now if you want them to just be Black like most Flares, Mask them off and
just Paint them using Rustoleum Bed Liner Spray Paint.
Search the Forums on the Subject for HOW TOs and Photos.
Just an idea to consider, and it will save time / effort, and won't cost you
your LIFE SAVINGS.

Or Plastic Dip, or Fusion, or a host of others.

Rustoleum bedliner paint or plastidip? I want to change mine (color to black). Are they to hard to take off (mask them off instead)?

My fenders were faded bad. So i just cleaned them off, and used Krylon Fusion spray paint. The satin black color. First i did the rear by taking em off. I'll never do that again! Its not hard if you takes the tires off. With them on it can be a pain! The front fenders i left em on and just put newspaper/masking tape all around it. And shoved as many index cards as i could inbetween the fenders and the body. Then just sprayed them while it was still attached. Came out perectly fine! Just make sure when your spray painting you're doing burst sweeps to spread it out. Don't just spray in a certain spot till it turns black. Takes multiple coats to make a nice finish. I used 2 cans on all 4 fenders.

Use rustoleum bed liner!!! Im all for plasti dip but for the fenders i dont think so. Your tires are gonna be "sand blasting" them by flinging dirt and sand. I just did mine in rustoleum bed liner. 2 cans for all 4. They look AWESOME!!!

I plasti-dipped my flares about 2 weeks ago and am a little hesitant about washing them like I usually do my Jeep, at a car wash with the pressure washer.
I've heard it comes off easy and I wish I would have just Fusioned them again or bedlined them. I guess I'll know for sure soon enough.

I used newspaper, stuck between the flare and body of the Jeep. If you press down on the flare it's easy to get it in there.

It's fine my hood is plastic dipped and has been for 2 and a half months. Just don't full on blast it on an edge or where it ends. But anywhere else its fine to pressure was it.

I just got back from the car wash place. I used the foaming soap brush and then I hit it with the pressure washer from about a foot and a 1/2 away with no problems.
