    black.... in my humble opinion they would look much better black.

    but do it well or it will look worse.


    EDIT-worse was the wrong word.

    I meant you might end up with something that looked better before you painted it.

    I vote for black. BUT, were the flares painted on the FJ or off? If they were painted while of the FJ then you could be opening up a whole can of worms when you go to take them off and end up not only painting the flares but also having to touch up the quarters as well...

    I think black would look great, for what it's worth! Durabak or LineX would look good too.

    Color matched flares look better IMHO. Leave them the way they are.

    Gotta listen to the Stones: "I see a red flare and I want to paint it black."

    IIRC it's under Thread Tools (near the top) or check the additional options area (edit the first post and look below the 1st submit button)
