Fender flares are fading what to do?

Hey guys, my fender flares are fading from black to a grey color. Just wondering if you had any suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

paint, plastidip... lots of options with good results. Could just get new ones, too - if budget allows.

It looks like someone already painted them.

Get some really fine sand paper and sand them down. clean them with soap and water and then some acetone. Paint with krylon fusion.

Yea most definitely the way to go! Sprays on very easily, gives it a nice sand paper feel! Scratch just buff out with a little water it's awesome

Everyone is saying to use Krylon fusion on other boards, any opinion on that?

I used Krylon Fusion on my flares several years ago. Still black but slightly faded, and no chips or scratches that I've seen. It's a good and cheap option to consider. Less than $4 a can at Wal-Mart.

I also used it on my headlight bezels, rear license plate holder, and portions of my dash.
