Fixing up my Bezels and Fender Flares
 
So since im off work tomorrow, I have decided to put some work into my Bezels and Fender Flares. I am getting the paint tonight and will have some pictures up tomorrow of at least the before. Should have the after pictures for everyone tomorrow night.

Paint In Progress

Looks good except that god-awful tag on the front. Drops the Jeep's style points dramatically.

You can hate the red and black all you want. I just hope you dont have any type of vomit orange on yours. That sets you back to negative points.

Also, here is a picture of the new painted and installed bezels.

Bezels look good, I may be doing that too. What kind of prep work did you have to do to them? And what kind of paint? thanks

Looks good! You should also do the juggs that are on your back bumper and the plastic part under your grill, on top of the front bumper that says JEEP....if you haven't already decided to do so. :wavey:

Now it's time for new tires and wheels, no?

BlueHoseJeep75 08-02-2010 09:29 PM

You are correct sir, it is time for new tires and wheels. I have the suspension on the way. Due to unforseen circumstances throughout the day I have ran out of time. Once i get home from work tomorrow, i will have the pictures of the finished front fender flares that are installed as well as the jeep logo on the front that is finished. :punk::punk::punk::punk:

Man.... I have been driving without flares now for weeks (no time yet to paint). The riveted holes/bolts that are boxed in by the body I ended up having to hacksaw off because the rivets just spun inplace. Did you have any issues?

No sir.. it's "Up with the White and Gold." Just giving you crap. I've got to sharpen my trash talking skills.. only a month to go.

Up with the white and gold....... oh man you really did have something wrong happen to you. Well at least for now i can bask in the thumping we gave you last year.

As for the rivets and screws, I did have a problem with the rear fenders due to the same problem. I ended up moving up to the front and found out the problem. There are little plastic nuts that are on the back that if you dont hold they will just keep spinning. Once i found those i didnt have a problem with them at all.

For the prep of the bezels and flares, I really didnt have to do much to them. I made sure to give them a good wash and dry before I did anything to them. Once I had them clean I went about painting them. I use Krylon Fusion for them. 4 coats on all pieces.

ok so here are some new pictures. I am finished with the front except for the bumper. I have yet to take off the rear flares due to time constraints. I will have them done hopefully by this weekend and then i can give you the full before and after pictures.
But for now here are the new pictures.
You can really see a big differance between the front and back now.
Let me know what you think so far.

Looks good! I did a post a while back when I cut my fenders down and painted them up with Krylon spray for plastics. Man, that stuff still looks great!

RoSs 08-03-2010 08:38 PM

Very nice. I need to do this
