i also made the mistake of using forever black

it is CRAP!

i only did one fender, then quit right there

after a few washes, i decided to try Krylon fusion, man that stuff looks awesome

one key thing to remember is to prep the flares first, i rubbed them down with some denatured alcohol and painted them as soon as they dried

looks good as new again, i would recommend it to anyone

I was thinking about a body shop but for the price new flares would be much cheaper.The forever black doesn't look like its going to come off easily,but it sure looks like a mess.

Once you get them black again, try using Ice liquid wax. I used it on my hardtop and it has kept it looking good for a few months now. A little bit goes a long way.

Has anyone used/tried spray-on Plasti Dip yet?

I used black Plasti Dip on my original mirror brackets. Like most early TJs, mine had started to turn white with corrosion. Somoene had tried to touch them up before but that clearly wasn't adequate to seal them off. I tried Plasti Dip just so I could encapsulate them better than paint alone. Worked out great so far.

Plasti Dip is flexible - it's the rubbery stuff used on tool handles. It dries between a Satin and Flat sheen by itself and has a good temperature range: -30F to 200F. Note - I'm not sure how well this could work in the Southwest where the sun makes things extremely hot but, for most of us this range is good. If anyone decides to try this stuff, take note: Plasti Dip isn't actually paint so you have to go easy on your spray strokes or get runs. It flows well like paint but builds up fast. Read the can.

'97 Jeep TJ (SE) - Sold. Goodbye ol' Paint. Be good.

I work at HD and we had a bunch of Plasti Dip go on clearance. I bought a few cans figuring that someday I'll need them. Honestly though, if I were to keep my stock flares, I'd just pay the money to have them line-x'd It would look rugged, and would be durable as hell. And you don't have to worry about it fading. But that's me.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

An uber cheap, quick and painless way that lasts about two weeks is Simonize "Tire Wet." The little handheld squeeze bottle with the built in applicator is like MADE for our flares. I love it. It doesn't attract or hold dirt. it gives a satin shine without being glossy. Turns the flares BLACK. I tried Krylon Fusion. Had to media blast the stuff off because I couldn't get it non glossy. Even with the satin Krylon. On a side note. Quite happy that a friend gave me his factory flares when he "upgraded" to Bushwacker Pockets. Need passengers side factory fog light and the two rear flares after this weekend. A little paint too. The space between the trees was just a little to small. On the way in. And, on the way out. First trail scars. Awwww. My baby's growin' up.

IF IT'S STUCK, FORCE IT! IF IT BREAKS, IT NEEDED REPLACING ANYWAYS.

I think the company is changing the name of that product to Forever Crap.That stuff ruined my flares.I just bought some new ones on Ebay for $125 since the old ones were crap before I tried that stuff.

A friend of mine gave me a bottle of Mothers Back to Black yesterday. I put it on, we'll see how well it works. I used it on all the flares and the back stock bumper. He did his several weeks ago and still looks good, but then again he's got a newer (07?) JK

That stuff works well,but washes off like Armor All and it costs more.

I used the Back to Black and had same results. Looks good, but doesn't last.

So far its holding up ok, but it's only been a week. I'll probably end up painting it when it wears off

It's what I use.... just have to apply it once and awhile. I don't have any problems with it. The more often you use it, the easier it is the next time.
