Black.Jeep.Alex i painted my fenders with the flat black krylon and it looked really well until i went out on the trail and pushed a bush over that was in my way. it scratched of really bad. i repainted them with rustoleum truck bed coating. i love the slight texture they have and they hold up alot better to scratchs

Hammerdown I tried Magic Eraser. I suggest you leave it in the dish rack. Did nothing except leaving whitish residues.

Zurn Alas, I fear none of these listed methods will help my fenders.

In the second picture, did you put any clear coat on that or is that how the Krylon satin looks? I thought it would be less shiny? Is it the sunlight that's causing the shine?

x2....I also wiped down exposed body panels afterward with a "prep solution" AFTER I was done painting, and masking was removed. This cleaned up the over spray very quickly.

Most parts stores have it in about a quart container. I think it works better than WD-40, and you should use it for clean up after lightly sanding whatever you are painting.

aelwero I use brillo pads on my JK. don't have any oxidation yet, but I have more scratches and nicks than any TJ I've seen around here, and brillo pads will actually smooth out a lot of the nicks and burrs. been using turtle wax ice liquid polish. I just spray it on everything, paint, plastic, powdercoating, whatever and wipe it off. keeps it simple... I like simple

Did "accent stripe" today and also shot the gas tank skid. One can does a lot of projects for me and I usually need to "touch up" about once a year with off road and IN winters.

Theist4JC Ok, I tried using Olive Oil as suggested by someone on this thread about 5 days ago I think. It has so much garbage sticking to it now and it's super sticky. I don't recommend it.

JeepCreeper I would think this would just attract dirt?

I've tried back to black and it does work for a few weeks. I think I'm going to paint my flares.

I'll have to try this. Seems like a nifty idea.
