You know the krylon fusion looks great after its done, but i have had to reapply it 2 times now. after wheeling and power washing the jeep the paint just chips right off. Im not using a heavy duty or high psi preasure washer either. stupid mud!!

The Fusion shouldn't chip if prepped right, it bonds right in with the plastics. I've used it before on plastic lawn chairs and no signs of wear. Actually hoping to do it tomorrow before I head out for the weekend.

I did the Fusion fix for my flares and all of my other Exterior Black Plastics, including the trim housing around the fuel filler. First time I filled up a couple weeks after the painting, a little gas ran over. All of the paint on the filler trip piece bubbled up and came off, as well as anywhere that the gas dripped on the flare below it as well.

I used the krylon Fusion crap and I could never get it to look that good and I spent more time preping the flares than I did painting them. So I decided to go over them with just Krylon semi-flat and they at least look better IMO. Haven't had them painted very long so I'll post the long term effects of the regular paint as time wears on.

I Prepped Mine With 90% Rubbing Alcohol And They Came Out Perfect. I Used The Satin Finnish, 3 Coats. If You Happen To Miss Taping A Spot And Get A Little On Your Paint The Rubbing Alcohol Also Takes It Right Off. A Buddy Of Mine Also Used It On His Hard Top And It Really Turned Out Great.

I found if you skip prepping and painting the underbelly of your fender flares your wasting time. The krylon will pull right off when washed with even a spray hose. I think b/c it tends to leave a edge where the paint ends and the water can hit it and get under it.
The best results are to remove the fender flares (which can be a pain if their old) then clean, prep,paint, the entire flare making sure to get good even coats all around. Don't forget also to leave plenty of time to dry. I know it takes more time than most people want to waste, but the result are well worth it

I tried using the generic "Tire Shine" by Pep Boys and it works awesome. I have run the power washer on it 3-4 times and then need to re-apply.

I can't justify that amount of work and time to only get them muddy and scratched again when I go in the woods.

Back to Black

I picked up some "Mothers- Back to Black" which is made specifically to bring back the color to faded plastics (fenders and moldings). This did work very well. It made my jeep look like new again. I also used it on my bumper ends. My only complaint is that it picks up road grime since I think it is silicone based. It looks like new again when washed and the water beads up, though it does attract dirt faster than the rest of the vehicle. I just ordered some "Forever Black" from Quadratec. They claim that it comes in a bottle with a sponge applicator that dyes the plastic black and that it does not attract road grime or dirt. I'll have to give an update after using it.

I took the back to black stuff and rubbed it on all interior plastics as well..... Looks like new, and restored the shine for a while. I would recomend it to anyone....with an older jeep. (I have a 1999)

I LIGHTLY sanded my flares with 150 Grit , prepped it with windex and put on 3-4 coats. It's been 5 months and it still looks incredible.
FYI: It's not really necessary to remove your fender flares. Just tape off your lines (take your time and do a good job, all mistakes WILL SHOW) and throw plastic over your paint and you should be fine. It saves hours.

My Stepdad, told me not to use the krylon fusion. He suggested to go to an auto paint store where the bodyshop guys go, and get a paint called SEM satin black color coat. It comes in spray cans like the krylon fusion.

i used sem before with good results, and im using krylon fusion right now.
its been on there for about a year, and looks great! i think prep is everything, so if you do it, clean and degrease thoroughly.

I did mine while I was home last month. Turned out great. I didn't even take them off just used index cards and news paper. I didn't sand them just wiped them down with mineral sprits and used a tack cloth between coats. Did all four flares and used 3 cans of the Fusion Satin Finish. I think I got four coats on each one. I also did the edges with a couple coats before I painted the flat parts, for extra durability as those will usally chip up first. The are holding up real well with all the rain we are getting in New England AND the best test of all the dog test!! When my pup jumps out or in the back she steps on the flares as a step. If the flares will hold up to those meat hooks anything will

I used Fusion Satin Black on my flares & running boards. They look great. I had planned to remove all of the flares. After what I went through to get the r/r flare off, I just decided to let the other three on & mask off the areas. I also used the Fusion on the steering column cover,radio trim panel & instrument cluster trim. I was walking around Auto Zone the other week, & I saw Dupli Color flexible bumper coating. I bought two cans to do my bumpers with, & I loved it. It has a very nice texture to it. I wish now that I would have done the flares with it. A few days after I painted the bumpers, I decided to buff the Jeep, & the wax that splattered onto the bumpers wouldn't wipe off, so I'll have to give them a quick coating of bumper paint again. Here's a link to Auto Zone's website.
