painted the fenders
hey guys! (and girls!) :)
finally got around to painting the fenders
Supplies I used: painting tape, masking tape, newspapers, windex and rag, and 1 can of Krylon Satin black

it was easier than I thought, especially with 2 people. It was my first time doing this, so it took a little longer.
I only got before and after pics, so here ya go....

some supplies I started with... I dumped the index cards for newspapers and used different tape...


heres a before and after shot


let me know if ya have any questions! :wavey:

RatherBNarizona 06-28-2008 07:20 PM

Buc Knaked 06-28-2008 07:30 PM

what kind of paint???
you cant just use any black paint right???

RatherBNarizona 06-28-2008 08:13 PM

well I'm not sure if u can use "any" type
I used Krylon black satin spray paint
that what most of us use to paint the fenders

Looks good. I am looking for motivation to work on my heap.

RatherBNarizona 06-28-2008 10:11 PM

yeah I have been procrastinating on it for a while
then I didn't have plans today and just did it already

nycom96 06-28-2008 10:40 PM

Looks alot better!

did you tape off everything and rattle can it ? or did you actually remove the fenders and then paint?

my next project is to paint my fender flares. im gonna remove em and spray them with something. dont know what yet. got half a gallon of some rustoleum left over from another project. might try that.

RatherBNarizona 06-29-2008 02:05 AM

well I heard it was hard to take the fenders off, and honestly just kinda wanted to get it over with
so I just taped over the ends with painting tape, the put newspaper over the rest (my painting skills aren't the best lol) it came out pretty good. I only went through about half the can of paint too

spanky 06-29-2008 10:34 AM

cool beans!

LWrangler 06-30-2008 02:20 AM

thanks guys! :)

I did that to mine a while back. I took fronts and rears off and primed them first, then sprayed them the factory stone white and clear coated.

tarheel 07-06-2008 05:22 AM

I did mine awhile back. I used Dupi-color for bumpers. It is a flat black that will hopefully be easier to touch up. So far I haven't needed to though:cool:

yjwrangler 07-06-2008 08:31 AM

i have been painting alot on my jeep lately, duplicolor, on metal i use rustolium then a top coat of whatever, usually bed liner, then i primered my roll cage, and primered and bedlinered the interior and used a vynal dash for the dash, its black now, was tan...
i never taped anything when i did the roll cage, never got a single spec of over spray on anything...hahaha

RatherBNarizona 07-06-2008 02:50 PM

lucky you lol
I used tape because I didn't trust my spray paint ability

mac3kuby 07-13-2008 02:55 PM

That is freaking awsome. I am gonna try that with mine but go with a spice/tan color. I think it would look good with my green jeep and tan top. I called krylon and they only recommeded fusion, but there isn't a good color for me in that. Since you just used their regular line I may try that on my rocker panels and see how it holds up first. Great to see someone who tried it!!!:D:D

I was thinking something like this for mine, what do you think ? I am going to start with the rocker panels and see how they hold up.

spanky 07-13-2008 05:12 PM

was that the color you'd use? becase personally im not fond of it. not the idea, i like the idea, just not the paint scheme. id go the color of your hard top. if not that then maybe black.

ive always wanted to paint part of my jeep forest green.. i love my green/tan seats in my jeep.. when i get tube fenders later this summer im going to paint em forest green until i get the $$ to get my whole jeep repainted the sand color it is..

heck you have the jeep i wish my parents would have bought.. exactly like mine WAS =D but now the goldish color has grown on me and i love it to death..

mac3kuby 07-13-2008 08:17 PM

Well I was trying in microsoft paint to get the color of the hard top but it was kinda difficult. Yes I will get paint almost the exact color or I won't do it at all. I was just trying to get a general idea of the end result. I am glad you like the idea. I don't think anyone has done it yet, at least not to my knowledge. I may try it in the next week or so....

MoA 07-13-2008 10:35 PM

the color of my jeep is the EXACT color on the sahara decal.. i LOVE it.. which is why im gonna rock the forest green tube fenders until i can save up enough money to get em painted right

mac3kuby 07-14-2008 08:32 AM

I think that contrast with forest green will look great. Go for it!:wavey:

02gtp4now 07-16-2008 04:10 PM

that looks alot better

erickpl 07-17-2008 07:34 AM :) Works on plastics quite well and VERY resistant to fade.

I used the Duplicolor roll on truck bed liner from Walmart on mine and they turned out awesome. $25 a gallon and I used less then a quart. One thing about it the stuff will NEVER come off.
