I've used Boiled linseed oil from Home Depot for years. One application makes them look new again and lasts about six months.

Hi!

I'm new to the board. Thought I'd jump in about the heat gun method. I have done it and it is awesome to say the least. It's so easy a child could do it and its FREE if you have a heat gun.

Paint will crack or flake due to the flux of the flares as the seasons change. Shoe polish is gonna bake into a bigger problem than you have now. Armor all has its problems too, due to improper use. But if you massage the Armor all with a datail brush (use an old paint brush), wipe, then wipe again with a dry towel.
My flares on my '95 look new! I've got people asking all the time if I'd replaced them cuz they look so good.
Then, car wax will retain their look, but you have to "wax off" thoroughly.

Hey S8NNG8,

Do you have a couple pics to show what the Armor All job looks like?

If your fenders are black the forever black dye works from quadratec I've used it on the mirrors plastic bumper ends and the fender flares also the valence and it works great it doesn't run or anything I've done two coats and a year later its still black. A highly recommended product

Forever Black is good dye, but don't get it on anything you don't want stained, including your hands
