Paint them.

I plasti-dipped my grill. I think it looks good, but it looks like it will be an annual event to repaint. The plasti-dip when it gets dinged, scratched, etc wants to peel off like a blister. Then you can't repaint without pulling all of the plastic off without having a blister mark.

Screw plasti-dip. I'll never do that $hit again.

I've been trying to figure out what paint would work best, I like the way plasti dip looks at first but it removes far too easily, but I don't know of any paint that will stay.

Your 01-04 flares are plastic.

Just scuff them up lightly with fine grit sandpaper.

Use a good primer and some spray paint meant for plastic. You'll be golden.

I tried it on the inside of them, scrapes off very easily.
