Fender Flares Renewing

After I get my jeep painted next month all the old black rubber/plastic will really pop, so I'm throwing around several ideas to renew these parts. As far as the flares I'll be testing a few different wipe-ons, but I'd also like to explore the idea of a spray on black texture. What would someone use for this application? Not too bumpy, but something to give it new life. Would Monstaliner do since I plan to do the inside anyway? I've never like the idea of painting rubber flares, so this would be as close as I'd like to get to it.

After reading the reviews on new flares I'm not too impressed as to what you get for the money. I'll eventually go with new steel front tube fenders and flares, but for now something to get me by.

I feel like the textured spray on stuff might chip off pretty easy.

Dreaming of my next upgrade

If you just want to make it look better/closer to new than I would use Meguiars (idk how to spell it) Back-2-Black. I used it on my four-wheeler that had been rolled down the highway and on dirt multiple times and it made it shine like new. It'd certainly be cheaper than anything else.
I love my country, I love my guns, I love my family, I love the way it is now, and anybody that tries to change it has to come through me, that should be all of our attitudes, cause this is America

a heat gun taken to old black parts makes them look like new....
I'm going to drive it till the wheels fall off, put them back on, and keep going.
