OEM Wrangler flares ?

Has anyone had any luck coating chalked factory flares with bedliner spray? I have heard they take paint poorly.

No problems with mine. Just make sure their clean. I know some people have taken their flares off but I just taped mine off and called it good.

They look great Brad. Did you scuff them up before spraying them?

Mine are holding up quite well. Painted them a year ago this month, actually. The only places that aren't holding up to well are rock chips that I picked up over the winter. they use pretty big gravel around here when they "sand" the roads.

If I remember right I scuffed them up with a scotch bright pad. I hav'nt had any pealing or flaking if I do it's easy to touch up.

I used a black rustoleum paint made for plastic,forgot the name of it, but it worked great. stuck a bunch of index cards between the flare and the jeep body and masked the rest with newspaper, and sprayed away.

Of course as with any paints, proper ceaning and prepping of the flares is a must if you want the paint to stick
