Ahh, good idea. Before you paint them be sure to do the prep work. Makes all the difference in the world.

|supernova1021||Yeah, Lowes carries Fusion. Have you thought about using Herculiner (truck bed coating)? I have used it on a few vehicles fenders and lower panels over the past couple of years and am VERY happy with it. Does not flake, fade or peel as long as you prep it good, and use the ROLL ON not the spray.|

took about an hour and a half to tape everything off, and then another 30 minutes to paint.

|vin211||I did mine last weekend. I used actual fender paint and so far so good. I put a couple of coats on their this time. I did it in the spring and they faded by time the summer was over. I did hear about using the heat gun and over home treatments. I guess whatever works for you. If you use paint, be sure to use plenty of newspaper and painters tape so you don't accidentally paint some of your rig.|

I pulled mine off, washed and scrubbed them with Dawn dish detergent, dried them, wiped them with Wax & Grease Remover (autobody type), sprayed Bulldog Adhesion promoter on them (for flexible parts), sprayed two coats of SEM Bumper Black paint on them. This was done over 4 years ago and they still look great. I've spilled plenty of gasoline on the left rear and still holding up (but I do wipe it down as soon as I spill anything).
I've also never had to Armor All them since.

|burton160w||Hit 'em with Krylon Fusion Black you'll be satisfied, mine look just like OEM. Just do a light sanding and wipe down with rubbing alcohol then spray away. Quick light layers work the best in my opinion. Only thing is, try not to get gas on the rear driver side or it will eat right through the paint|

|Gary2||I used plain old Krylon satin black about once every two or three years. I just wipe it real good with rubbing alcohol to get any oil off of it , tape it off and go to town . use it on my Daughters XJ on any black moulding or rubber bumper parts, door handles anything that was a dull black originally , hell I just did my Hard top Sunday .|

Also heard a heat gun will turn them black again.

Search through the forum first next time you have question cause this is a very popular one.
And if you search im sure you'll find that krylon fusion satin or flat black is the best for fender flares.
