Painted stock fender flares and pics

I painted my stock fender flares about 2 months ago now. I had a post in and was going to put in some pics, I never got around to it until now, any questions? The Krylon Fusion is holding up better than I imagined. There are a few minor scratchess.
Didn't try doing the front valence, figure it'll bend too much and crack the paint easily.

I guess Webshots won't work with this forum or something, I put them on with cardomain, but they are alot smaller than I wanted.

No, it's not really that glossy, the pics make it a little shinier than they are. I don't think a satin or flat is available but that would be great. They have some shine but not high gloss.

I just painted my valence over the weekend, it looks great and seems to hold up really well. I used the Krylon Fusion paint I used for my flares.
I also painted my grille a while ago, it was fairly easy for me, being it's a different gen ranger I don't know if there's a large difference.
