erickpl Online is pretty much it. You MAY be able to get it through your GM/Chevy dealer. Their website may list local resellers though. I got mine directly through them.

If I could find a good representation of the fading my deck had before it was done, I'd show ya. It was kinda zebra'd/streaked and about as light (or lighter) than my flares currently are.

It is my plan to get it done over the winter. I just have not had the time between work and school.
weres the best place to get this? local or online?

Bob how many cans would it take for the stock wrnagler fenders?

hank1 That looks great. According to Gatorback it will look just as good on my 2000 TJ. The Tech guy said it adheres very well to the type of plastic used by Chrysler. I gotta try it after seeing that Avalanche.

Giancarlo looks great but how will it look on seriously faded flares from 97..?
10-07-2008 03:45 PM
erickpl aerosol cans.

Since I don't have it on my TJ yet, I'll show you how it looks on my Avalanche.





With some sun reflection... it shines but not obnoxiously

hank1 Did you get the aerosol cans or will you spray with a paint gun? I'd probably rather use aerosol than clean up a gun if everything else is the same. In the meantime though I have to deal with my blown out rear axle.

erickpl that was me and I'll post up pcs tomorow of it on my avalanche. I have 2 cans of gb and one can of ceaner/prep stuff. I just haven't done it yet.

On the avy it is very nice! Just not as cheap as krylon fusion

hank1 I can't. I haven't used it. The other day someone on the forum named it as something you could use. I'd never heard of it so I googled it. I'll probably give it a shot. Here's a link to their site. Welcome to GatorBack: Home of Automotive Plastic Restoration Products

Gatorback on fender flares

For what it's worth. The other day I read about using Gatorback in a fender flare post. I didn't know what it was. Turns out it's the stuff GM puts on the faded plastic parts of the Avalanche truck, etc. I emailed Gatorblack to see if would work well on faded Jeep fender flares. The Tech service guy emailed me back today and said he used it on Jeep flares three years ago and it has held up well. The company recommends professional application but I saw they now offer aerosol cans.

Naturally, I did all of this before my rear axle disaster. So now fender flares are the least of my problems. Anyway, Gatorback may be something to consider.
