Stocker Fender Flares!

I plan on replacing these somedaybt at the moment it is way downthe list of mods I (Need) want to do.

So that being said does anyone know how to keep the damn things from fading so bad or how to bring back there original luster!

When I got my jeep they looked great I have had it for I dunno I would guess somewhere close to a year. They are already fading and my buddy's are grey. Any ideas or products that actually work?

just use some rubbing compound, about 2 dollars at our local ACE store.
i use No.7 rubbing(orange) and polish(white) for everything these days.
follow that up with mothers caranuba wax and they'll shine

Actually. my wife bought a dremel and I had to try it out. Used tape to get the line and followed it. I used the little cutting wheel that came with the kit and then sanded them with the sand wheel. I left the flares on the Jeep, just freehanded it with tape.

them dremmels man, i'm not lying when i say they are wort the investment.

home depot usually runs a special on inserts. I got one from there with over 50 inserts (drills, holders, other cutters, etc) and like 10 hard cutting wheels, another 50 grinding cutting wheels then another 100 sanding disks.. and many more. 40 bucks..

i busted out my dremel yesterday to only find out my old co-workers from the kitchen place i use to work at stole all of my inserts =/

i even had a battery for my dewalt drills and my saw-zaw stolen from me.. the guy i was working with was pissed because my xrp set same with a xrp saw-zaw and his didnt.. so he tried the old switch on me.. it was funny when another co-worker stole it back and replaced it with the one he tried giving me..

the only thing im still missing is a battery.. he traded me one that didnt work for one of my good ones.. so i stopped carrying an extra battery with me when i worked.. just made sure i had one that was fully charged..

funny thing is now i have about 12 18v dewalt batteries =D

alright sounds easy. tape it up, cut it off,sand it smooth. give it a fresh coat a kyrlon fusion and those are some nice flares. what do i do with the light/wiring tho?

also, when you sand it smooth, do you sand just the edges you or sand the whole fender? my fender has quite a few scratches in it from flying rocks... hit it with primer and then a couple thin coats of the kyrlon fusion?

I took mine off. Get a 5/16 ratchet wrench. Loosen the rubber piece inside the wheel well so that you can get your hand behind the fender. (held by some christmas tree plugs) The first 3 screws are in a fixed grommet style nut. The rest have a rubber piece that needs to be held while you remove the screws. Not hard to do and easier to paint while off the vehicle

I just painted mine on the Jeep. I did take off the front extensions, since they were simple to remove. I used electricians tape next to the flare, then blue painters tape, then newspaper to mask the Jeep off. I didn't have any problems with getting any overspray on the Jeep. Use electical tape since it makes for some very clean tape lines and it's extremely flexible when masking curves. Try it with regular masking tape, then electrical tape.....you'll never go back to regular tape. A little trick I learned in a previous life as a custom painter in a body shop.....

Just clean the flares with acetone prior to painting them. It's to clean them and to get off any wax that may be on them.....wax is not your friend when painting. If you don't have any acteone, Dawn or any dishwashing soap will work since it cuts the wax as well as any grease. Just be sure to give them a good rinsing.

Good luck. The best part of painting them with Krylon Fusion is that the paint is cheap and very easy to touch up if you ever need to. I only used one can on the whole Jeep and that was with 3 light coats on each flare....
