heat is a NO-GO. you will get weird spots in the plastic where you overheat it. i tried, it doesnt work. dont use heat. i painted mine on the jeep with Krylon Fusion Satin Black. washed them with dishsoap and a scrubby pad, rinse and dry thoroughly. mask the hellllll out of everything else. overspray is ridiculous. i unfortunately did not mask all that well and i have black overspray all over the jeep. no sanding is needed, no primer (krylon says no primer) and deff take your time. nice even strokes and make sure you let it dry before you drive it. i didnt let mine dry totally and now i have bugs embedded in the paint.

Yeah I used alot of newspaper when I painted mine. I prolly should have cleaned them up a little better than I did. I would use some aceatone if I did it again.

If I were to do it again I would mask and paint. I took them off to paint and it was a major pain in the butt as most of the mounting bolts broke off. Just something to think about.

I have used three paint products for Jeep black plastic trim over the past eight years: Krylon Fusion Satin Black, Rustoleum Textured for Plastic and Duplicolor Flexible Bumper Paint. The Duplicolor looks better, coats more evenly and lasts longer. It stinks to high heaven and takes a little longer to dry, but in my experience is a superior product in the rattle bomb solution to flare fade.

It also looks good on......

I have painted fender flares but I want to make them Black, how much do I have to sand them down before I can re-paint?

Can I use that on the side trim too? My XJ is red and all the trim is silver, but its so worn and faded you can see the red in places.

yeah you can use it on the side trim, shouldn't matter.


Krylon fusion is a no-sanding-required product. Scuff it with FINE sandpaper if you really want to.

I did it to mine, and it turned out real nice with the krylon fusion, haven't tried the flexible bumper paint mentioned above.

even if it does fade in say, 2 years, how bad is it to take another 4 hours or so to fix it again.

Just curious have any of you guys done this to the stock painted flares? I have the green ones that come with sahara edition, will the black paint work ok or should I do something else to them first?

Duplicolor bedliner is more durable than using paint, though it seems to fade quicker when exposed to elements.

I used the krylon fusion and it worked great. I used printer paper and masking tape behind the flares. It took all of 1 hour to complete.

Krylon -- all the way. I even used it to repaint my tan soundbar cover black. The cover is made from nylon which is plastic. It took quite a few coats to cover all the nooks and crannies, but 2 years later it still looks great.
It will feel slightly sticky for about a week afterwards.

I'm gonna re-paint my fender flares with Krylon Fusion - It's a white & Chrome 1990 XJ so the fender flares are grey/silver. Does anyone know what color code that is? As in, what color Krylon should I use to get the original silver/grey stock color back on the fender flares/body trim/bumper caps?
