FOREVER BLACK --Does it work??

How well does the product "FOREVER BLACK" work on flares and bumper extensions? Is the finish glossy or dull?

I have a 99 TJ and really need to do something to the flares/bumper extensions.

Forget about wiping something on to get the color back. Go to walmart and get a couple of cans of Krylon Fusion spray paint. Clean your flares and what have you "EXTREMELY WELL" with like acetone or something to get the oils and previously applied armor-all, whatever completely off, lightly sand to ruff-up the surface and paint the suckers. The fusion paint is made for plastics and such. I did it to my flares, side steps and the mirror trim on the door. It made all the difference in the world. Also try a search on this forum on flares or fading flares, there was a lot of talk about this same thing, that's where I got the info to paint mine.

How difficult was it to remove the flares? I assume that you removed them before painting rather than trimming & taping. What grit sandpaper did you use; would 0000 steel wool be better than sandpaper?

i think the fender flares screw on from inside the wheel well...they are easy to take off, i know that much otherwise people wouldn't be swapping them like baseball cards.

The front ones were easy to remove. The rears were a pita, and after a session of trying, I got nowhere except aggravated and bleeding scraped hands. Masked them off with masking tape and newspaper, and then painting them was a breeze. As I said, before/after pics in my sig. Well worth the time spent.
