    im about to go out and buy some herculiner to do my faded flares on my truck and was just wondering what the best cleaning solvent i should use before? The flares are plastic and on the instructions I read for that stuff online they didn't include plastic as one of the materials to use herculiner on. Thanks, any advice is appreciated.

    i got a grinder and chewed them up a lot before i put mine on... so there would be a lot for the liner to grip to

    i actually noticed it peeling off easy on spots that i didn't grind.... i had to go back over and grind it and put more layers


    i was mainly the flares that needed this... i didn't have to scuff as much on the body
