I have a 98 TJ with stock fender flares. I have been using mother's back to black on them. It works well and they look good but its a wet finish so it collects dust, and I have to reapply it every few months. How
easy / well do the stock flares paint? I'm sure it can't be too hard but my main question is how well the paint sticks. Anybody done it? Howd you do it/ turn out? Thanks.

I bet that Krylon Fusion stuff works good...it's specifically designed to adhere to plastics.

A lot of companies claim that you can paint their flares different colors to match or contrast with your Jeep. So I'm guessing they are probably pretty easy to paint, and to get paint to stick to them.

I've used the Krylon Fusion on my Rubicon flares and it works very well.
