Water Dog I painted mine with fusion satin 2 years ago - no clear coat. This is the way they look today. My Jeep lives outside.

I did this to my fender flares too. They're holding up well in the trails so far. Beats dropping a few hundred dollars on new fender flares.

Dextreme Just leave it "as is" with Fusion Black Satin. It's durable. If it starts eventually looking ratty, just shoot another light coat over it to make it look new again. Simple.

rdsiler I painted mine with fusion. No clear. So far they are holding up good.

sok ya thinging ill give it a try with just the paint first like the looks if it nothing to repaint if dosnt work out...
04-24-2013 03:25 PM
thgr8alex I mean i wouldnt see why not besides it looking really shiny. I would just keep em with the fusion on there. Just my opinion.. But Ive had mine painted for almost a year now and still look great.

sok did prep work want to know about clear coat or not
04-24-2013 03:10 PM
thgr8alex I did fusion on mine. I sanded them down before i painted and cleaned real well. The key to getting paint to stick/last no matter if its fusion, plastidip, etc. is the prep work. Good prep work before painting is key to having it last longer

You should have just plasti dipped them or used rust oleum truck bed liner. It's more durable and doesn't have a glossy shine
