Relatively easy once you have the interior door panel out. It's pretty straight forward, you should be able to see how everything comes apart once you open up that panel.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

what type of paint do you use for fenders? Does it last? It looks good.

Those look VERY nice. I kick myself for not using Krylon Fusion when my wife and I painted our flares last summer.

We used Duplicolor's paint for Vinyl and plastic trim. after removing the flares we hit them 3 coats of adhesion promoter, then put 3-4 coats of paint. After it was all done they looked good as new, but I have a few touch up spots from scraping on the trail. the Krylon Fusion probably adheres stronger and last longer.

If I can dig up pics from when we painted the flares I'll post them, but just so you can get an idea.

BEfore when they were faded


and after painted, although a bit dirty in this pic

First I removed the flares from my TJ, then cleaned them and dried them off.

After that I used a couple coats of Duplicolor adhesion promoter, Autozone has it in their section they keep all the spray paints.

Probally wouldn't really need to do much prep using Krylon Fusion, since that stuff is designed to bond right in with the plastic. I imagine just wash and spray.

H2RESQ- The Krylon will come off also. Just ask anyone who has overfilled their gastank a little. Once the gas hits the Krylon it eats it away...

As for prep, I just washed the Jeep, cleaned the flares with an ammonia based cleaner (I used Windex) per the paint can instructions and painted in many thin coats. It has lasted a couple years so far. Mine are due for a touchup though...

That's good to know, I guess I'll stick with the Duplicolor since I've spilled gas on them a number of times since painting them and it didn't do anything to them.

i took mine off. washed them with soap and water. took a scotch type rough pad and scuffed them up. just lightly, not like it really needs it anyway, but just in case i missed any dirt.
then just applied a few light coats.
