Fender flare paint

How long does the average re painting of fender flares last? Is it worth it and does it look decent? Thanks

It really depends on how you use the Jeep. I don't go off road and the paint has been on mine a couple of years, except where a rock was thrown by a tire. I used Fusion flat or satin. I don't remember. I got a little fish eye, even after sanding and cleaning with acetone. I have painted them on the Jeep with cheap flat black and it came out better but they were sand blasted after one ride on the beach.

I used the Fusion Satin also. Painted on the jeep. So far so good. Definitely lasted longer than any Armor All type product.......

I pulled mine off this time because I had other stuff to do.
In the past, I had used cardboard from cereal boxes and stuffed it in behind the flare. It worked pretty good. Others have used index cards.

I stuck printer paper between the fender and the flare then put sheets of painters plastic over the rest of the jeep.

After my doors were stolen and I got some nifty Honolulu Blue ones for cheap that didn't match the rest of the jeep I decided to do mine using Fusion - "Patriot Blue."

I taped em off. Was easy enough to kind of pull/stress fender away form jeep and get painters tape in there. I slid a fake plastic credit card in between the two front pieces as it happened to be in my trash bag and worked like a champ. I then just used some plastic drop cloth to protect hood and doors and got it done fairly quickly after a much sanding and cleaning.

I don't wheel much and this was just done in September, but it has been to and form elk camp twice, on a handful of trail rides and power washed twice. It has recently seen a wicked cold spell/snow storm and the hunks of ice are now melting and revealing no damage/chipping. I'm happy with it.
