Mad Max 04 I work at a car wash and put armor all on mine keeps them black. Anytime a older jeep comes with flares that look like it hasn't been touched in years I'll put it on there and looks just like new. Just do it like once a month or every other month

Black98 I use forever black on mine but it doesnt last very long especially after rain. I plan to paint mine down the road because using the forever black can be a pain when you have to coat it multiple times.

I was able to get a good even finish, but it isn't nearly as durable as painting with Krylon Fusion or similar products. In full sun, it didn't last six months before I was looking to "refinish" the fender flare extensions again.

jp2611 I don't know how little time you have--- masked and shot my fenders (all 4) between 7-9am one morning last winter in the garage--left for work at 12pm. There are a few pics on here of them.

I did have a very little overspray here and there that I didn't mask well enough. Used a prep solvent on a rag to wipe it off before it "cured". I used Rustoleum hammered.

Good Luck!

98SaharaTJ PlastiDip it's an aerosol rubber coating. I used it for the mirrors on my doors, looks great

Owen_TJ couple things you can do...

as mentioned you can remove and paint them (or keep them on and paint them, just make sure to tape it off really well) with rustoleum or krylon fusion.

Another way would be to use a heat gun on high and basically 'burn" them back to black...

both work very well

jskinn27 rustoleum krylon fusion. painted mine black. just mask around the fenders as taking them off is time consuming. ive also heard you can use a torch to get them black. not sure on how effective that is though.

dfry Say hello to Rustoleum BedLiner or Krylon Fusion. Get to know them well...they will be your new best friend. There are dozens of threads on this. Just depends on the look you want as to which to go with.

And Welcome to WF!!

Help with fender discoloration

A little while back my friend that it would be hilarious to put masking tape all over my car and draw on the tape. After peeling it all off the tape left whatever they drew on it on my fenders, not anywhere else. I have used soap&water, and Mothers Back to Black to remove it but neither work, any solutions to this problem. The fenders are just black plastic if that makes any difference.

Any and all help is VERY appreciated!!
