What color Krylon Fusion paint for fender flares?

Im thinking flat black would be too....well.....flat. and i surely dont want gloss. What has anyone else used? LIke a satin or semi gloss?

and does it seem to hold up well?

black satin krylon fusion looks very nice on flares... not too shiny and not too dull

just make sure you prep VERY good or you'll be redoing them in a couple months

Pretty much just wash them down really well with acetone on a rag. Let them dry completely before you spray the paint. If you're not sure, check the side of the can of paint, it will tell you as well.

If you just want them nice and black again use a heat gun or propane torch to heat em up, off the jeep of course and don't get too frisky with the propane either.
Otherwise herculine works well.

I like the satin black. the Ultra Flat is too flat they look more weathered or sun burned.

The reason why people use Krylon Fusion is because its made FOR plastics. It adheres very well just like plastic model paint.

I did Krylon Fusion Satin Black and it turned out great.. Even help up well when a Moron in a Lexus hit me.

Here are some pics both before and after.

As for prep.. wash all teh crap of with soap and water... Then wash the entire thing again with Mineral Spirits and keep it handy. If you streak when applying use mineral spirits immediately to remove and try again.
