    Hey guys, my fender flares are taking a beating from the sun here in AZ & are turning white. Has anybody sprayed Dupli-Color bed coating on their flares? If so, any tips ??

    I just coated my skid plates, turned out good.

    Thanks

    jkeller did that to his and they look great. There also some ways to get them back to black or at least better than they are. 303 aerospace and turtle wax ice are 2 products I've used on mine and have had success. I've also heard of some people using a heat gun on the plastic like this

    there are some boys on here who have sprayed their flares and it looks awesome,ill be doing it next year but for now i use a mr.clean magic eraser first which brings the life back to the flares(or any other plastic part thats faded),then i use Mothers back to black.

    i did this about a year ago with the dupli color bed liner. i first sanded it down with 320 grit then sanded it with 1000 then i washed it with soap and water then used acetone to clean it. even after that some has came off around the rubber type seal. but u can touch it up if that happens. good luck hope it turns out good
