    Painting advice on factory fender flares

    Just wanted your opinion on painting factory fender flares. Mine are started to fade and I would like to keep them black but not sure what paint to use? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    I have tried that before and it looks good for a couple of weeks..... I also tried the heat gun trick which made em even worse. I'm too cheap to buy new ones and I plan on cutting these up into flat fenders.

    If you want to paint, I suggest Aev spray paint. You get nice lightly textured finish. I use it all the time. It's a little pricy for a spray can though.

    So I guess the next question would be paint for plastic or just regular auto paint?

    You would need a paint for plastic if you use auto paint you have to prep the plastic with another product for it to adhere right

    I would also think paint for plastic, because the fenders are going to flex, and if the paint is too hard, it will crack and flake rather than moving with the fender
