    My gen 2 has discolored and damaged stone guards. They look like crap.
    I've used this 2k "bedliner" that has an activator in it and dried SUPER TOUGH.
    The results look great. And I have no doubts that it'll last since it is true 2K Urethane. And since it is so thick.20211028_122528.jpg 20211028_125711.jpg 20211028_125739.jpg 20211028_135727.jpg

    The discolored rock guard is just a clear sticker that has dirt between it and the paint. Did you remove it prior to painting or just spray over it?

    I replaced the stone guards on the fender flares with OEM stickers and it was a PIA. The lower ones are starting to look bad and I wasn't looking forward to replacing them. Will definitely keep you method in mind when the time comes.

    Thanks for the tip!

    They refused to be removed. And a razor blade started cutting into the paint. So, I shot on top of them.
    This stuff is thick.
    It shouldn't be an issue.

    I totally would’ve removed before painting too. Don’t like the idea of painting over a dirty sticker.

    I haven’t used one but I’ve heard great things about these:

    this is the correct way to remove old vinyl from painted metal surfaces. Wont work on the fender flares since the friction will melt them.

    I work with this stuff daily. The remaining "stone guard" was gone; the black was glue, collecting dirt. This can be stubborn but cleans up with Prep Sol or Goo-Gone. You may have some adhesion issues or bleed through. A competent shop could have that cleaned up and fully replaced in an hour or 2. Regardless, the repair looks much better than before. Curious to see how it holds-up.
