What type of paint should I use for fender flares?
Currently my fender flares are blue, and I am looking to paint them black. But I don't no way type of paint to use, and where to get it?
Spray paint? Or brush on paint?

Krylon spray for plastic. Clean them well first to remove any residue. A good de greaser.
Scuff them with a scotch brite pad, wipe them off and spray them.

What she said ^^^^^^^. Krylon fusion spray paint has worked well for me so far. Just clean with an ammonia based cleaner (think Windex) and then paint. Just make sure that you aren't using ammonia free glass cleaner like I did at first. Luckily I realized my mistake before painting. I bought the paint at Walmart and used what just about everyone was recommending....Krylon Fusion in satin black. Turned out very nice.

Just make sure you rinse well if you use ammonia or an ammonia based cleaner. they can leave a residue that will interfere with adhesion.
