I was looking on line for options on turning my gray fender falirs black again. I came across a video of a guy taking a heat gun and they would turn black again. I was wondering if this last very long. Not sure if I am going to use Krylon Fusion or the bedliner. If this heat gun thing works That would be the fastest

I saw other videos were they used a torch, and i think it will last till they fade out again, since aplying heat will probably melt the faded coat with the rest of the black plastic.

I have on both mine and friend's Jeeps and it works well. Just keep the heat gun moving, it will look like the heat gun is spraying out black paint instead of heat. It's not permanent since the material used fades with time but it will look good for probably close to a year or longer.

It works good but I would just paint them lasts longer and looks better. The heat gun is hard to get even coverage you get darker spots in some areas and whatnot. I didn't have it like that long before I went and got some paint

I found that it doesn't work too well if it's cold outside. Mine ended up coming out blotchy so I painted them with Krylon Fusion. After a year, that chalked up so I re-sprayed with bedliner.

I tried this but found it doesn't last very long and hard to heat evenly enough to prevent splotching. Painting or replacing best.

I tried it. My flares were a white-ish grey when I started and shiny black when I finished. The finish was a little splotchy and didn't last very long, so I ultimately ended up spraying them with Rustoleum spray-on bedliner. That seems to be holding up pretty well
