Fender Flares fading.

My fender flares on my edge are fading, along with some other parts on the truck, but the flares are the most noticable. Has anyone ever bed lined them? How does it look? Should I just repaint em?

It also leaves holes on the fenders. Holes do not make a truck look better.

Mine are edge flares, as stated in the first post. Not gunna throw tire shine, back to black or anything on them. Because that would just make my PAINTED flares greasy.

So. Basically, the only thing I've seen here so far is the rhino lining.

If the clear coat is peeling, you should sand the clear off before you put anything on them. If the clear isn't peeling then wax or polish it, show it some love. Painted surfaces shouldn't fade unless the clear coat is gone. Spray them back the original color, will look much better.
