Rhino-line fender flares?

I have a 97 TJ that the fender flares are just scratched and worn to hell. They're faded and look light gray and have a million scratches on it. I was thinking of pulling them out and buying some of that spray-on rhinoliner stuff and spraying it on. Opinions? Any possible disadvantages to this?

I am not sure if the stuff will fade over time, but I have seen it done and it looks pretty good.

Personally, I would tape off the Jeep and give them a few light coats of Krylon Fusion satin finish.

x2 on the fusion. For the price just go the cheapest route on the flares. They will look good.

If you use the parts-store spray on bedliner stuff it will fade. If you actually have your flares Line-X'd or Rhino Lined, they will stay nice and black.

I have seen a guy around here with the pocket flares LineX on them. He was showing me how they would bend and the linex would not come off. I was impressed. I like the look and they seem to be durable. I am thinking of doing the same.

Local Line X wouldn't recommend it when I asked. He said it wouldn't stick to plastic in the long run.

Front flare will have no prblems.... When rocks fly off your front tire and nail that rear flare the Line-X will peal and allow moisture in between it and the flare... Bad news.. Course All-Terrains are worse about pickin' up pebbles and rocks than the M/T's...

I guess he may be wrong. I really like the look of your flares.

I had them done in July of 04. They are holding up just great. They are not as shiny now. But, I like that. No fade either. Cost was $100.00 to do all surface areas.
