rhino lined fender flares?
 
what does everybody think? i just got my 00 wrangler a little over a month ago and i love it so far. looking to throw a lift on it and upgrade to larger rims and tires. brother in law had the idea of rhino lining the fender flares and license plate bracket just for a different look. what do you guys think. new to the forum. love what ive seen, your input would be rad. thanks.

I think it would look pretty cool. I have never seen it done before either, but I'm not sure how well it will apply to the slick fenders. Maybe once you sand them down they will be rougher. Give it a try and see, they are only fender flares. Welcome to the forum.

yea, and i figured if i didnt like the way they looked or if it didnt work out, i would just have a good excuse to buying some new ones right? haha

:punk: I think that would look awesome on the bushwacker fender flares to, post some pics of it when you get it done

I did it with my stock flares, I used the Duplicolor roll on bed liner stuff. It worked and looked great. The stuff is cheap, easy to use and really durable. With my 04 Rubicon, the paint came off when I was pressure washing them, I had them replaced by the dealer and the next time I washed it the paint came off again so I used my pressure washer and took the rest of the paint off, scuffed them up a little and rolled the liner on.

any problems with it coming off at all?

No problems at all. Once you put that stuff on, it is on for good. Be sure to clean the flares really good beforehand. The stuff is really sticky and dries fast so you can put the flares back on in about 1/2 hour.

right on man, thanks. ill let you know how it turns out. im almost positive ill do it now

You get the stuff at Walmart and if you roll it on and wait till it gets a little tacky and then roll the roller over it again it will give it a bumpier texture, but that may not be what you want. Be careful and roll the texture you want quickly because it dries fast. Good luck and post some pictures when you are done.

How about using the rattle can duplicolor stuff I was thinking about doing my center radio panel

I found that the spray Duplicolor bed liner was too smooth for me. To give it much of a texture you have to put it on heavy and then you may get runs. Just my opinion. I would suggest trying both to see which you like best.

For a radio panel it might be perfect.

Wear gloves when you put the liner on and make sure you don't get it on your hootus! :D

You have any pictures of this, I would really like to see it? Thanks

Well these are about the best picture I can find. If you can zoom in you can kinda tell what it looks like.

I wish I had never given those old flares away!

just dont put that stuff on metal....its good for protection for the first year or two but after that it gets holes and holds water in.........we all know what happens after water gets to metal.....oxidation baby..cj frame type sh@@

hhmm i'd be scared of the flares vibrating if there is liner on the corners. Wouldnt want my paint scratched off all around the corners of the flares and rusting in about a month..

that looks good

mirrorman9 01-14-2009 05:43 AM

I just did mine also, very happy with the results. I used Dupicolor brand. I also Rhino lined my mirror housings, and my front wind deflector. Extremely happy on the way the wind deflector looks.
