I recently purchased some flares and they were faded so I cleaned them and then wiped them down with a very lite coat of burnt oil they look like new now

I just did the heat gun fix and it worked great. I use 303 UV blocker on my raft. I think I'll start putting it on my flares too.

Works beautifully on pretty much any faded plastic.

I know! I was thinking about completely flaming him for posting such a ridiculous photo, but then my sense of kindness and decency kicked in and I realized his Jeep hasn't ever left the mall.....so.....I let him live....

Ditch the paint. throw some under coating on the flares for a more aggressive look

Rustoleum bedliner is the best. Its tougher than regular paint and it has an awesome textured finish. It has lasted me a year so far with only rocks causing some small scrapes. Easy 5 minute touch up.

Bed liner does look amazing but if you are like me and live down a mile long dirt driveway your fenders/bumpers will fill up with dirt And look bad :/

I can see how this could be true. And the texture is something you can't just clean by wiping off so if you get that mud that stains, you'd have to repaint or sand or something. But i have had great luck so it just depends on where you live I guess.

Forever Black. One bottle at $9.99 will do two Jeeps.

Line-x bed liner! I did it to mine and it looks awesome. I hated the look of the old faded ones so I got mine redone in black.
