paint flares with monstaliner?

Is it possible to paint 6" flares with monstaliner? When they flex will it break the monstaliner off and crack it, or if I prep it right will it hold up?

You can paint the flares after doing the prep work... but if you flex it enought, the monstaliner will still tear, and from there it will be like a sheet that the wind will pull off. I wouldn't suggest it personally, just for the fact that it most likely will end up cracking if you go off road with it.

My jeep is monstalined, but I would not do the flares. Just my opinion, but good luck on which ever way you choose to do.

Won't monstaline them then. That is what i was thinking as well. I guess I will clearcoat them or something to make them look new again.

I sprayed mine with rustoleum bed liner from wal mart (about $8 a can). Looks great, and has held up well.

Couple of months. I've run through some nice tight canyons/creek beds with tons if branches sown the side of the jeep. Some could almost slap the passenger through my side!
