    Herculiner now has some UV protection if you wanted to keep that same texture, etc. No clue what it'll do for already weathered material, but its not very expensive.

    oh I know, I was just piggy-backing on your thread so we don't have two "black paint" threads right next to each other. I was coming here to post a new thread with the exact title but re: the front grille logo. Sorry. :eek:

    Rustoleom? How ever you spell it lol

    The professional line of Rust. from Home Depot in the big silver cans are amazing. They havent faded on mine yet. I would also try getting the little circular pad that comes in paste wax and get some GEL wipe on tire shine. Put a little gel on the pad and wipe down all your black faded areas, it will keep them darker than the paint can for weeks.

    After you find the paint your looking for......keep it covered with aerospace 303. I use the stuff on my finders, tonno, ect. It has UV protectors in it that really seem to work well.

    I haven't, but planning to pick up some Herculiner next week to do the same to the fenders and front bumper.

    The original owner had put some type of bed liner on the fenders at one time, but its old enough that its coming off. I sanded down the rears and sprayed it with a fine textured Rustolium for plastic and it it looks ok, but not quite the look I want, so just going to end up reapplying the bed liner I think.
