So the wifey and I bed lined our faded, pealing, cracking, and scratched fender flares yesterday. I must say they look 100% better. Almost like we ordered brand new ones from the factory. We purchased rustoleum bed liner from Home Depot for about $8 a can. We used both cans we bought. We applied about 5 coats to each fender. Before spraying we sanded down all 4 fenders. Then we cleaned with alcohol, also available at Home Depot. We then taped them off with painters tape and wrapped the jeep with news papers and plastic sheets to prevent overspray. It turned out pretty well and we love the finish. We will be doing the hardtop VERY soon. The grill is Plasti dipped, we will be ripping that off soon and bed lining as well. Here are some before pics and prep pics with it sanded and such. If anyone is thinking of doing this I highly recommend it. Enjoy. :)
Before.

:thumb: Good as always with bedliner, one of the first things I did when I took mine home. Didn't you used to have clear corners and turn signals?

We currently have the orange turn signals but we hate them. We found a pair of clear ones on amazon for a good price and will be ordering them soon. Sticking with the black and white theme. :)

Look good, next time I would say remove it from the jeep so u can reprint the entire plastic
That's what we had intended to do, but we forgot our toolbag and we having our bedliner fun in our cousins' garage. They didn't have the appropriate tool to remove the bolts, haha. So we taped. Bedliner makes the plasti dip look awful in comparison but maybe that's just because we didn't do a good job on the plasti dip in the first place.

VERY happy with the fender flares. Can't wait to do the hardtop!

Pretty cheap on amazon. $25 shipped for the two square ones in the front. Haven't looked for the ones on the side yet. I'll post a pic when I put them on.
