I just kept at it after it dried. I don't know what it was, but then again these frigging fenders up and went grey for no reason. Like I said, it did the same thing on my 2000 XJ. One of my siblings has a 90 XJ that was kept out in the sun all day every day, and this never happened to it. Oh well.

I'm going to assume that it was budget related

You seem like you know what youre doing so let me ask this. The PO had painted my fender flares with god knows what paint. It has the look of Krylon Fusion Satin but I dont like it and it wasnt done nicely.

I have a few question. Since they have already been painted how should I go about prepping them?

He had oversprayed and got some on the body how do I go about getting that off?

And finally, I like a more matte black look like the one plastidip provides. Is that a good paint to use for the flares or would anyone suggest something else that will provide somewhat the same look?

Thanks!

Well from what I remember about my limited experience with over spray the first element is to identify what kind of paint it is (IE the base of that paint). In your case you don't know since it was from the PO. I believe that my friends who tried it out used either clay bars or an old school wax, not the kind that you find at target. Most of them used clay bars though.

You need to use a type of lubricant when using a clay bar though (get your mind out of the gutter )... it's needed to allow the bar to work without destroying the paint underneath the over spray.

From what I remember the only lubricant you need is soapy water in a bucket. I've also heard of friends of mine using Joy dishwashing detergent and water or something like Ivory dish washing mix. No heavy duty mumbo-jumbo expensive kit needed. Just keep the surface wet by dipping clay bar into the soapy water or with wet towel.

When you use the clay bar work a small section at a time, and try it out in a small section to see if it will work for your over spray. I know that many people say use it in a circular motion, but I had a friend who swearers that you should only use the bar using up and down motions.

He was adamant that the circling motions are what will cause scuffing marks.

Not sure what kind of bar to try but I think he was using Clay Magic or something like that...

Hope that helps.

Let me rack my brain to see what I can tell you about repainting those fenders... hmmmm.

Excellent write up! If I could I would only add two suggestions for the next time: use a cheap scuff pad to knock off any shiny spots and then follow it up with a quick wipe down with mineral spirits. The mineral spirits will remove any wax or dressing residue and those little spots wouldn't appear as a result.

Thanks for your kind words Jeepers It's always a good feeling when someone has seen you do a project, even if it is a little one like this. That's why I tell people to post pics even on the little things....

I'm a visual guy, and I get ideas by looking at other threads on this forum... if my lil write up could help just one other TJ owner to take out their own funky grey fenders then I call that a win

Thanks for the heads up on the mineral spirits blackpony04... I will check that out in the future, and use them on other plastic items that I need to bring back to OEM "black" looks
