2 should do it I would think ...I used 1 can on my fender flares and then opened a second can for bezels and antenna that's still almost full. Also, I scuffed up my flares with 400 grit sandpaper, blew the dust off, and then wiped them with acetone before I sprayed.

Gonna redo:
1) my bumper & fender (sun damage is significant).
bumper i'd do bedliner, fender I might sand down and do a respray of matte black

2) trim* (or are they called flares)
if it's entry guards in the door i'd do bed liner

3) metal rails that hold the soft top on (sorry no idea of right name)
I'd do these in plasti dip

I might be bitting off more than I can chew but I have been checking the forum and it don't seem that hard. Well except for the taking off the **trim/flares**.

Thank U for the help and or links.. ::smile::[

hope that helps. I have never really been a fan of the plasti dip, but I do like the bed liner for some things...

Did the fender flares come out good with the bedliner? I ask due to the texture diference.

mslandsurveyor It has been mentioned that while PlastiDip can withstand a lot of abuse, the only place that it has been getting peeled off is off of the door sills when we get in at out.

We did do the bedliner last summer in the tub in the back of the two door and along the rails for protection from the dogs being idiots. I don't think that he scuffed it, so the soft top frame wore some of the bedliner off over the winter. He just touched it up with bedliner and the color matched paint and it looks good as new! The Bullet has been stripped of his doors and soft top, so he is a happy Jeep!

mslandsurveyor I like the PlastiDip because you can just peel it off if you want to do something different later on. We've done the grill, the entire cowl cover area, the entire tailgate and around the rear lights, and along the rocker panels.


I also know how it will look once we get the cash for the Stage 2 Rock Sliders from JCR! Kind of.....anyway.

KSGoldenEagle I did my fender flares, light bezels, and antenna with rustoleum truck bed liner and I think it came out great. Never used plastidip but alot of people like it. I think if you want a textured look go with bed liner....a smoother look probably plastidip (someone correct me if I'm wrong). I just taped off the fender flares instead of removing them. Hope that helps
