Krylon Fusion Flares

I went to Wal-Mart and picked up:

- 2 Cans of Krylon Fusion (Satin Black)

- 2 100/pack Index Cards

- 1 Roll of Masking Tape

- 1 Roll of Clear Plastic



Total Cost = $18.00

Time to Complete = 2 Hours (less than)

Before Photos:

Before I started taping off the flares, I cleaned them really well with some Windex.

I tucked the index cards behind the flares and taped them in place.

I wasn't really comfortable with my paint-control abilities, so I also taped down some plastic too.


I covered the ends of that sweet-a** front bumper with my custom 'Safeway' masking bags.

I used small strips of masking tape to cover the turn signal lenses. (I used one of those 'shopper cards' on my keychain to tuck the edges around the lenses)

Here it is, in all it's ghetto-fab glory

I sprayed on 3 thin/medium coats of the Krylon, and let it dry for a good 30 minutes. Per their instructions, the dry time is 15 minutes.



After Photos:

I only ended up using one can of paint, less than half of the plastic, and one pack of index cards. I guess I can do them again if it wears off.

It's been 6 months. How are they holding up? Can you post some new pictures?

I agree - I'd like to hear how this is holding up. Looks great, though! One of the best 'cheap' mods going!

Looks good. I used Bondos Back to Black Die. Only lasted till the first rain. What a waste of time. Hows the paint holding up?

Here are mine after nearly a year and one coat:
(sorry for the poor pics)









Over all the durability has been good, these are a sampling of about what all four show for wear.

Road debris that gets kicked up from tires and regular washings seem to wear on the fender paint. The paint on mine lasted about a 1-1/2 and it is about time that they get another coat. All the time is in the prep work. I had three coats with the first two being light build up coats with the last one being a good cover coat. I wish I had taken pics before and after.

heres a tip! put wax your jeep( carnuba works good for me) around the area that you think may get overspray on then when your done painting wipe the wax off it will take off any over spray that may have gotten on your jeep...
