brucecooner Posted January 25 Share Posted January 25 I had noticed the paint is flaking off the tops of the front fender flares, but only right up next to the body. I took a closer look today and it looks like the actual material of the flares themselves is flaking away, taking the paint with it. Ack! The rear flares are not doing this, I'm suspicious it's a combo of age, sunlight, and heat from the engine doing in the flares. Is there a mitigation for this? Can I apply something to stop the loss? The truck is gray, and I'd actually like to paint the flares black, if possible, but painting might be pointless if this rot is just going to continue under a fresh coat of paint. Are there aftermarket solutions? I like the flat metal flares I've seen on some XJ's, but they all seem to require cutting the fenders or adding armor, which I don't want.
