tube fender (GenRight) finish

I am getting a set of GenRight tube fender in a week or so and I would like to see how some of you finished them.

I have included a poll to help me decide on powder coat , bed liner(Monstaliner) or flat black.

Your help is much appreciated

Flat black or some other sort of roll/spray on bed liner.
I put mostaliner on my tube fenders and didn't like the outcome when it gets damaged.
It gets brittle in my opinion and comes off in chunks and is a pita to patch up and make look right.

FWIW I scuffed the Monstaliner and went over it with Placticoat bed liner.
I bought a gallon of roll on for well under half what monstaliner costs and can touch it up with the rattle can version of the plasticoat and a sponge roller.

And again it takes rocks, trees, and stone chips WAY better than the monstaliner.

Color match the body part, and then go flat black on the flare section. Here's mine, I did orange and gunmetal gray as you can see but it's the same idea.

I have the aluminum zero flares




krylon satin black. easy to touch up, doesn't need clear coat, and doesn't hold dirt like a bed liner

That's really nice

I'm now leaning towards the satin black any one has experience with this brand ?


Mar-Hyde® Black Satin™ Automotive Trim Coating - aerosol, 3811, 12 oz, 12 per case

Try it for yourself - spray Mar-Hyde® Black Satin™ on aluminum foil, let it dry, crumple the foil and see the adhesion! Also provides excellent adhesion to brass, galvanized steel and plastics.
