Fender Flares

Ok, so I've called Rhino Linings, LineX, and two body shops. None would do the flares. The lining guys said the baking process does something to the flares and the body shops said if there was ever (yes, ever) Armor All or anything like that one thm, they can't do it. I guess what these people are really doing is stating they'd rather not mess with them.

Thanks. I'll do what you did. I'd like to do my bumpers and side steps. Can I use the same stuff?

I use it all over bumpers, inside tub, sliders, mirrors; and I haven't posted up yet because it's still drying in my basement, my hood.
Sneak peek!

Surface prep is the key. Be warned, it can be addictive.

Bed liner is made to stick only to clean, grease-free painted steel. Anybody I know who ever applied it to plastic flares regretted doing so in a few days, if the flare flexes, it cracks and flakes off.

I guess I'll find out. It seems to have stuck pretty well. If it does come off I'm out $7 and an 1.5hrs.

That doesn't appear to be the concensus on this forum or jeepforum.com. Most are recommending it.

One word. Penetrol. Fender flares, bumpers, factory side steps...anything that used to be black that you wanna bring back.

Wash, dry, apply Penetrol with a foam brush, wipe off after 5 minutes with COTTON CLOTH (t-shirt is the best bet). Treat one piece at a time. Lasts way longer than any other liquid treatments and wont crack like liner or paint.

Happy Jeeping!

I did my flares and fiberglass top last august with Krylon Fusion Satin or semi-flat It hasn't cracked or peeled, and I even had them off a few times to do some bodywork. They get pretty flexed when removing them. No Cracks. And the stuff goes on perfect.

Only problem is that no spray paint brand or type is really gasoline resistant. So I got some staining below my fuel cap. Turtle wax fixes the gas stains pretty well though.

Walmart has Fusion for $6 a can.

Just be sure to wipe the parts down thoroughly with acitone. The spray will bead and separate as you're applying it if you don't.

Did mine in March of 2012. Still look new. I did clean them with plastic cleaner. Don't remember what it was called but it is used to prep plastic for paint.

A change of plans. I'm having my hardtop painted and the guy called me and said the paint supply house can make me spray cans of paint with the flex agent and will match the top. I think I'll try that roure first. The paint supply house guy told me to use alcohol to prep.
