Question on Bushwacker pocket style fender flares

I bought a set for my LJ and am wondering how many people Paint them, Rhino line them or just leave them the way they come.?
Thanks Bill

We've applied LINE-X to TONS of them.

Well, maybe not "tons", but I think you get the idea.

Personally i do not like the look of painted flares. The line x may trap mud and look dingy but i have no experience with it. A plus side of the line x is that it will hide the scratches, and can be touched up lot easier than paint.

Heres a pic of mine on my MJ. I didnt do anything to them

Actually, LINE-X Premium will not trap dirt/mud. It's much easier to clean than standard LINE-X.

Leave them alone. You must prep plastics correctly or the paint will peel.

rusted fastners

Did you have any issues removing the fastners on the rear flares that have the inserts? I am trying to figure out a good fix for mine. Had to use cutting wheel to cut off the bolt heads which when drilled out leaves a hole that is accessable from the outside only. BTW I had my new flares commercially coated with bed liner. Also had the front fenders coated. Will send pics after reassembling.
