Restore color to fenders
Like almost all jeep tj's, my fenders have faded to gray. I do not want to paint them and have used back to black a few times and it really doesn't hold the color well. A few of my friends are automotive students and can let me borrow their heat gun. I'm just wondering whether or not this will work. I don't want to deal with the hassle of taking on and off my fenders. Any ideas of whether or not the heat gun method will work? Thanks

The best part is they won't scratch, they still pliable and won't fade. He applies a clear coat to keep them from turning dull.
I'm really considering having him Line-X the interior. No more carpet to deal with and easy to clean...

Or you could pick up a Krylon Fusion rattle can for $5. If your worry about painting is simply the PITA removal process... then don't remove them. Stick some index cards between the body and the fender, tape up some newspaper for the rest of the overspray, and you're done. It's good stuff. I have it on my fenders and have heard nothing but good things from other people who've done the same thing.

i did mine with 2 cans of rustolium bed liner, 8.99 x2 and i painted them while on the jeep in 1 hour and 53 mins (the gf counted lol) then let em dry over night, best investment under 20$
