I used the duplicolor bed liner on my grill and leading edge of fenders. U think it looks really good. Doing my fender flares next. Very cheap and easy. Will post a pic later. Won't let me from my phone right now
I did the heat gun thing yesterday. Yes it gets rid of the chalky look and brings them back, but mine up close looks like a bad paint can spray job. I mean there is not way to NOT see the lines as you run the heat gun because basically you are melting them a little so they dont melt evenly. But that said i still like not having them look weathered. Tire black is still the best thing ive found that isnt permanent. I think someone hit the nail on the head when they say all these products will fade... from bedliner spray to cooking oil, which by the way works too for a month or so.
Nothing beats the traditional lightly sand then krylon satin black method unless you like the bedliner look and texture. Bedliner is tough but IMO, much more difficult to clean due to the gritty texture vs. krylon paint.
This photo shows what my heat gun will do in just a few minutes. No need for masking or any mess and it won't bother the paint so long as you don't stupidly hold the heat gun pointing at the paint. That it's free to do worked very well for me.
