Ok..few months back i 'accidently' blew off all the paint on my PS Rear fender flare with a power washer. I would like to repair it before it gets really cold here (Massachusetts winter). Now here is my dilemma.

1. 3 of my rubber fender flare gaskets need to be replaced (one of the gaskets is on the paintless flare).
2. should i just pull off the 3 flares..replace the gaskets and have the rear PS flare repainted?
3. should i just pull off all 4 flares and just have them line-x'ed?
4. should i need the rubber gaskets if i line-x the flares?


Sorry for the questions..but, i figure that i might as well do them all at one time and save time and y'all know what you are talking about.. Also, i would like to do the less expensive..and easier fix..and not too concerned with looks since i have a REAL black rig the line-x would actually match the color.

Thanks..

I've had a couple of truck beds linex. I also know a guy the had it done to his lower rocker panels. I would ask the Linex dealer in your area. With most of these coatings the quality of the job is based on the skill of the installer.

I have the Dupont stuff in my GMC and it just won't come off.

Call it prep, application, etc but I can put pallets in there and it won't scrape off.

Line-X in my last rig scraped regularly.

Plus the UV stabilization is mo betta in Dupont.

Duraliner is the stuff I believe...mae sure you get a pro to put it on...I hear it isn't for the do it yourselfer.

When I was taking my painting class in school we used a product called ,3M Body Schutz, It was easey to spray and was like a rubbver textrure that you can paint over or not. most cars have this on the rocker panels to protect the paint from chipping off do to rocks. I think it would work very well to paint flares with it. You can do it yourself too. It comes with a spray nozel.
