Painting fenders

Any body ever use rust-o-ileum textured bed coating on there fenders. How good does it stick to plastic? Wanting to use it on my fenders they are really faded. Or any suggestions on what to use?

I painted my Bushwacker flares with Krylon Fusion for Plastic. It turned out great at first, but a year later now its started to fade and chip. I painted a 1/2 of one with plasti dip to see, and so far it looks like it will hold up great. I have read others using the bed coating in a can and have had no trouble.

I used Krylon Fusion for Plastic on mine and havent noticed any fading or chipping what so ever. Its all about the prep work though so make sure you do the necessities.
