Bedliner, Krylon Fusion, heat gun, or replace them.

Use a heat gun on its low setting, it will turn them black again. No it won't damage the paint & there is no need to do any masking.

Before & after. It doesn't last forever but depending on how much sun the fenders see, it will last six months to several years.

Never heard of the heat gun trick. Thanks

I did the heat gun trick. It was difficult to get the color uniform but mine aren't black to start with. It lasted about a year and some spots got lighter than others. It kind of looked like camo. This past weekend while wrapping up some other projects I masked them off and painted them and it looks %100 better. In my opinion take the time and paint them and you'll never have to mess with them again.
