Which Paint To Use?

I have seen several people on this site posing pics of upgrades done to their Jeeps. One common thing I see is that people are repainting their factory fender flares due to the faded color. I am wondering what type of paint are you guys using? Also, have you had any problems with it flaking off? What prep work did you do before repainting. Thanks for any tips.

I used Krylon Fusion Saten Black, as far a prep, I just washed them & wiped them down with mineral spirits before spraying. I found it easier to hang them instead of laying them down on paper when I did mine.

Hit them with a heat gun, off the jeep, it will bring the black back.. Herculiner if you want to draw blood from people walking by in shorts who get too close.

Krylon fusion flat black. I used the regular krylon and it didn't work, f***** up my fender sanding it down later realized it wasn't the fusion.
