bwilburn Congrats. Our youngest is 15 now but our oldest just had a baby. Makes me feel old. But anyways, I used Rust-oleum X-2 rattle can satin black on my flairs. I have been to the carwash a few times and they seem to be holding up good.

Tannerr Can you only get the Krylon paint in spray bombs, or can you get quarts and what not to put through a gun too?
03-10-2011 05:27 PM
InfernoGirl If you paint the body, use gloss, and clear it with a few coats of gloss, make the final clear what ever finish you want to end up with.... Gloss is harder.

Just bought a 99 Tj Sport on the 4th, and had to paint the hardtop and flares. I used Krylon Fusion Satin Black worked great used up about 7 cans altogether. Hears a couple links you can check out:

Hope this helps you out it sure helped me. Only cost me $40.

BigEZ heard Krylon Fusion is good for the flares (and cheap) and u-pol raptor/line-x, similar bedliners are good for the flares and hard top. Don't see why the Fusion wouldn't work for the top other than might be hard to do without runs and/or pooling just b/c so much flat surface to cover. Either way as you have already read, prep the surface area extremely well or it will all be for nothing

I would use primer and then paint separately.. but there are many ways to go about it.

The most important step in re-finishing a plastic/rubber piece from an automobile is the pre-paint prep work. I would advise giving each piece a good wash with a towel and some plain old Comet powder from under the sink. This gets rid of any film/oil/grease/dirt that might keep paint from sticking and/or make bubbles, runs etc.

DKarge87 I have always Heard great things and great results my self and for the top i might look into a marina for paint they would youe on fiberglass boat hulls
