there have been so many threads on this, and the majority of the replys i have seen, you will want to go w/ krylon fusion FLAT black spray paint. back to black works for a short while according to the replies I've seen, and krylon fusion flat black STAYS black. i'm doing my flares within the month w/ fusion.

Are the flares painted or are they the gray ones? From the picture I can't tell. Good old CRT monitor....

If they are painted I would try some rubbing compound. If they are gray get PlasticX.

You could try wetsanding them and buff them out. If its gone right through the clear, you will need to repaint them.

Let me guess, those are the back flares? Mine are getting dull on the bottoms facing the front.

My painted flares are starting to discolor also, but I am red as you can see in my avatar. Not sure what can be done, but I am getting bigger Bushwacker ones eventually.
