Painted flares and bezels

Decided to finally paint my flares and bezels today, took about 4 hours. Those little screws are hard little suckers to get on and off... Did 4 coats on everything with krylon fusion satin black. Looks good so far, just hope it holds up. Let me know what you all think.

Thanks for all the compliments! I used krylon fusion satin black. I went to checker first, and it was like 6.99 a can! then went to walmart and it was only 2.99! haha I noticed the light was tweaked in the pictures to, didnt really notice when I was actually taking the pics. It does make a HUGE difference.

So do all flares fade like that? I was thinking about buying new ones but if this happens all the time maybe a touch up would be better/cheaper.

I do plan to do a repaint in Durabak. Also planning on some other stuff and a couple rattle cans instead of hundreds of bucks.
