TnDz TJ The Rustoleum bedliner requires two good coats ( one can for flares ) The touch up is unnoticeable. Its a slight texture... here is a shot of my swing-away and bumper with two coats also...

If the old paint is chipping off, you should just strip it and spray the liner. The aerosol liner doesn't go on nearly as thick as the roll on stuff.

BLK00TJ I kryloned the summer before last and by this summer it had already grayed and became a little chalky looking. The parts that I bedlined with Rustoleum were still as black as the day I sprayed them (same weekend that I kryloned). The other parts were bumpers, handles, license plate mount, and gas bezel. A few weeks ago I sprayed the bedliner over the krylon.

flyfishnevada Best part, is you can shoot that stuff right over the top of itself and you'd never know. Easy to maintain and repair.

AZ Greeen Jeep Wow! Those pics all look great. I'm going to have to do that. Where do you get this stuff? Auto parts store?

The Boss Man Just use krylon paint. It's cheaper and lasts about as long as the bed liner does on the plastic just make sure you prep it right. Dish soap works great!

NHEric I did the Rustoleum spray bed liner. I bounced em off trees all last weekend. They held up great. Wish my tail gate held up better when it met that tree, but that's a story for another day.

Dextreme Just paint them with Krylon Fusion - Satin Black.

jasongind I used plati-dip on my fenders & bumpers. It worked great. I've had it on the trail done then & not a scratch on them. To prep I washed them with Dawn dish soap, then wiped then down with a lint free cloth & aseton, then sprayed them. The rubber isn't like pain to where toy need to sand it in order got out to stick. They are still dusty thus the washed out look, but they clean up good & are a very deep black again.

Menchu..

How did you prep the flares? Did you have to sand them or something to get them roughed-up so that the bed liner material would adhere? I have the plastic flares that have turned a greenish-gray, and was thinking of doing something as well.

It seems that paint, or any other material for that matter, would have a hard time sticking to this surface. It probably didn't help matters any that I put Black Magic on them to try to revive them.

Fender Flares: Paint vs Bedline

I need to restore my fading gray factory fenders. But I'm undecided to paint or bedline them.

I just can't make up my mind!

Which lasts longer? Which will fade first/fastest. Which is more durable to scratches? Which looks better?

What is your thoughts? Which do you prefer?
