Color match or black fenders??

Hey guys,

Just ordered my PSC tube fenders the other day. Looking to see opinions on weather to paint them factory color matched or just semi gloss black to match my bumpers and other armor??

What do you all think here? I'm leaning color matched.....but if they get all scratched up its more expensive to repair.

How about color match the sheet metal on the flares and rattle can or bedline the actual tubing of the flares?

Personally, I would paint them to match your jeep color.

Colored fenders are a waste of money. They are one of the first things to get replaced to make room for more meat.

You do realize he's getting tube fenders and wants to color match them? Not like he's contemplating tube fenders or Sahara flares

Just my opinion but

the color matched fenders have always looked better to me. I have a Sahara and really liked the color matched fenders. However, keeping them looking good was a major pain. After knocking paint off of all four I now have Bushwacker flats. I even considered painting them to match but fortunately decided against it. If I had, they would be badly scratched after my last trip and I would be right back where I started.

Well if it is a Sahara then color match would not be bad,any other IMHO should be black.

Thanks for all your opinions guys. I'm just thinking the color match would look so good. I really am leaning toward the color match and then bed line the tubes.

The brown truck dropped off my present today anyhow. So now to test fit and then make the final decision as to how they will be finished.

I gotta shoot PSC a message tho cuz it looks like I got 2 of the rear fender install kits and only the gasket for the rears as well?? Oh well, no big deal I'll just send them a message and get it straightened out.

I voted for black but, mine IS black so, does that mean I really like the idea of color matched better?

I think either way they will look awesome! But, I really am looking forward to seeing pics of yours color matched since I haven't seen that as often!!!

What color is your Jeep?

I vote color match. Do you want to follow the rest of the lemmings or do what you think would look good. Here is a link to my color matched fenders. Not psc but it gives you an idea of the look. I painted them myself so I can touch them up when necessary. Go with good paint and prep the fenders well and they will turn out great.

Nice Jeep carbonunit! Man is that sharp, do we have the same color Jeep? Also what paint did you use? Brand and where did you get it from?

Looks like our jeep is the same color.

I got the paint from a local automotive paint store. This is the first thing I have ever painted with a spray gun instead of a rattle can. The guns I used were from pep boys and were not top of the line but they worked well. My compressor was just an under powered 20 gallon one but it worked great. It took about 3 hours start to finish to get it painted.

I used a self etching primer they suggested. It was a rattle can they had on the shelf. The base color was a sikkens automotive paint. I painted them twice but I used a pint of paint. I covered it with a clear from Wanda. It all came together well.



If you paint it color match yourself Don't stress if the colors don't match exactly. I did but once it is on the jeep sometimes the fenders look light and others it is dead on. It just depends on the light. I already have some pinstripes on them but that is what jeeping is about.

Very cool! Thanks for the great info. I think I'm pretty set on color match and then bed line the tubes for added protection. The white Jeep on Poison Spyders website looks real good with that combination. I'll post up the pics as soon as they are done. I called PSC today and they are sending me the correct hardware kit for the front. Should be a couple weeks an I'll have them done. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Good Choice. I can't wait for the pics.
I am a little perplexed why everyone thinks we need our rigs to look like they were driven straight out of Beyond Thunderdome. On the other hand if you paint it and don't wheel it who cares how it looks.
