Faded Fenders ..
 
My fenders are showing their age, they are faded. They look great when wet, or when buffed out but that shine is short lasting.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that a good scuff and clear coat will make them look better...anyone have experience?

Or should I just enlist a body shop to paint/clear?


Whats the cure?

I plastidipped mine. Cost me about $20 and looks great.

Did you do your rims too Nick?

Also a tip for your white Agenda Surf traction pads, Use some soft scrub with bleach.

I've gotten mine pretty dirty with shoes and it made them back to new white with just a brush and a little of the soft scrub soap.

Hydro dipped mine and made the diamond plate steps myself.

I am with Timvan. I am sick of my fenders looking awful. I may go the Plactidip route like Nick.

How much was it to hydro dip?

Rims are dipped too.

Loving that hydro Tay

Is the Hydro dip very expensive? I have the older trailer fiberglass covers and they are BIG!
They are still very shiney as they get waxed frequently but I like that Carbon Fiber look!

I paid 370 for the dip. That included repair of the fiberglass, sanding, primed, dipped, cleared, 'etc. considering the condition they were in, it was well worth it. I thought new fenders were in my future.

The dip is a good idea..How scuff proof is it? Does it scratch easily?


local company does it for $.71 a square inch.. Think I will be inhaling paint fumes in the future

That's a good deal! Just the prep work alone, especially doing repair work, is ALOT of work!:D
