    So has anyone rhino coated their fender flares? Don't like how cheap they look with the plastic color. Don't really want to paint them as I think the rhino coat would look better. Thoughts?

    i was actually thinking of doing the same thing. only thing i was worried about was the grill/front bumper not matching anymore.

    yeah after I shoveled out today, I was looking at it thinking the same thing. I think the rhino coat would look pretty sweet but the mismatch might not work. I don't want to get into rhino coating the front bumper. I'm surprised nobody has chimed in that they've done this. I didn't think I was such an innovator.lol

    I saw that one when he first did it. Not exactly my thing but the blue and black looks good. I also have to see but I think the fender flares on mine are a shade lighter than the front bumper. Back bumper is painted black already.

    look in to POR 15, its smooth like paint and is hard as a rock when it sets, can get it in any color too, been considering it myself

    Will definitely post some pics if / when I do it. I'll have to look at the POR 15. At first glance on one of the websites that popped up, it looks like a good option. I was kinda thinking the Rhino coat cause it's got that textured finish to it. I just can't believe how easily the fender flares scratch. The one's on my '99 weren't scratched this bad when I got rid of it at 12 yrs old.
