Faded fender flares????

Just wanted to let everyone know, hopefully this aint a repost. But if you take some cheap motor oil and rub it on your faded fender flares, they will turn black again. After they sit for an hour or so go back with a dry cloth and wipe them down again to get access oil off. Worked for me.

How long does it last thou?

The funny thing about this signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything, it's too late for you to stop reading it.

It's been about 4 days so far for me. Still look great and the rain beads right off. 4 Days is better than any other product I used on them before. Never used Forever Black though, heard that good.

Back to Black is ok, if they are really faded though it will take many coats, and after a couple rain storms or washes it starts to fade. I would do the paint route, .99 cans of paint and they are easy to touch up, no hassle!

I renewed mine with a propane torch. Sounds crazy, but it works (a heat gun will work also). Just warm them up and watch the shine reappear. It should go without saying that all proper precautions for the safe use of a torch should be applied.

Back to Black lasts about a month
Heat Gun about a year
Fusion Paint been 2 years and still looks great. I might touch it up this year, but I don't really need to.

I picked up two spray cans from Advanced Auto; Dupli-color Adhesion Promoter and Dupli-Color Bumper Coating. I took the flares off and washed all the mud off .

Then I used the Adhesion first then the Coating, they were ready to put back on in less than 1 hour.

That was 9 weeks ago and they still look brand new.
