Krylon Fusion vs. Duplicolor Bed Liner on Flares

Well like most people here, I hate having fadded fender flares. Yes back-to-black and all that works OK, but it needs to be applied constantly, which doesnt work well in the winter. I've heard a lot about people using Krylon Fusion Satin to paint their flares, and they seem to come out very nice. (http://jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=239338) I've also seen in other threads that people use Dupli Color Satin Bed liner, this seems like a better way to go, more texture and probly wont scratch as easily as paint. Plus its ruberized and can take a beating. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried either or and has any pictures? I would love to do this to my jeep to clean up the flars a lil bit. Thanx.

I would do the bedliner because it would look tougher, or better yet just flat fender.

Bed liner is definately the way to go. Just did mine last weekend and it looks great. I've bed lined many things on the jeep, finally got around to the flares. This stuff is not really rubberized though. It hardens fully yet will still give as the flares bend. Another thing is the textured finish hides scratches.

Sounds great! Do you have any pics of it? Also what brand did you use, duplicolor? Thanx for the advice!

Only the front has been done. Only had 1/2 can when I started. Have to pick up some more to do rear. I had done the grill about 6 months ago and I did notice that it had faded just a little, compared to the flares. The flat part of portion of the wheel well on top has also been painted with liner. When working on stuff this is usually where I lay tools. It was getting pretty scratched up so I painted it as well.
I've always used the Dupli Color. I think it's in like a blueish can. Cost about $8.

Finish

Is the dublicolor a rougher finish ? ? ? I actually like the herculiner finish on flares.
Is there anything out there with that rough of a finsh and maybe a littel cheaper
Thanks !

Dupli color has a light textured finish. $8 is pretty cheap. You should be able to get 2 coats on all flares with one can.

depending on how you spray, you can get different degree's of texture. read the can of duplicolor and it should explain this.

I bought a can of Duplicolor too. While I'm painting my new flairs I thought about painting my steel safari style light guards with the bedliner.

Mud is for fun, rocks are for throwing.

Do you happen to have the pics for the grill? i would like to see how the fade looks on the duplicolor. I keep getting told to use the Krylon Fusion. So i am still kind of confused...

don't do the bedliner. I did four coats of herculiner on the flares after thouroughly sanding and scuffing, and the stuff peeled right off after about 3 weeks. Just go with black spray paint of some sort.
