Rustoleum bedliner. I tried Krylon Fusion but it eventually grayed and got chalky looking. The bedliner is a good texture and more UV stable.

I tried that first, but it came out blotchy. It may have been because it was about 20 degrees out that day though.

I am definately going to try this method out. I think the guy who owned the Jeep before me painted the fenders so I am probably gonna have to get some type of paint remover first

Thanks

I tried the Krylon Fusion as well, Looked great at first but faded with in a year. I just did them last month with Rustoleum Bed Liner in a can. I am very happy. I love the texture and they look great. Pics in my build thread.

I heard you have to be very careful about making even passes or else they look overlapped.

Try this:

Bedlining the Fender Flares

Looks awesome, very similar to stock, easy to apply and very forgiving. Even looks good on the front of my fenders!

Dragon you are brilliant. I used the stuff and they look like they came out of a professional paint shop. As hard as I tried to screw up it just wasn't possible. Thanks forthe advice Amigo!!

You're welcome.

I don't know what it is about that stuff, but it goes on so smooth and flawless.

Mine was a warranty but they said it would cost me about 100.00 todo all 6 pieces with a lifetime warranty.. They sprayed the inside and out. Said it last longer and it looks amazing

That video is cool but what happens when you get 1000 degrees closer to the paint?
