It looks good on my bumpers. Not sure how long it will last. Just did it two weeks ago.

You could try spray-on under carriage liner...similar to the spray bedliner.
i would think that as long as you use a paint specific for plastic and prep it right that it will work

I painted mine with flat, high temp engine paint. It was what I had in the garage.;) It took very little prep work. I simply washed them with soap and water. I did this about a year ago and they still look great.

The first time I took my truck down a gravel road fast both the rear bin liners "disappeared". Smashed to bits in line with the tires. The dealer gave me new ones on warranty and before I installed them I bolted 1/4 inch rubber belting all the way around and they still look like new after 9 years.

Do your fender liners have undercoating sprayed on them? When I bought my truck my fender liners looked awful they were an ugly faded grey color and just looked dirty no matter how much I washed them. But then I realized they were undercoated and spent about an hour pressure washing the undercoating off and now they look great dark black and still look new three years later.

When I bought my truck used, the liners were pretty dirty. I washed them and then rubbed them down with Armorall. They looked very dark and clean after that. I use the Armorall every once in a while to keep them looking new.

No liner sprayed on them at all, i tryed the armor all trick last summer when i cleaned it helped a little. talked to my bodyman today, he told me to clean and degrease them well and wipe them with alcohol before i paint them.

I have used Armor All but prefer spray on tire shine, looks like new.
