    what are most people using to paint their plastic inner fenders. I degreased, cleaned, primed and painted mine and they always seem to flake after a year or so. I don't drive it much.

    I think I need to strip them all the way down and start over but I don't want to take them out of the car.

    If you want to strip them the easy way go to Pep Boys and get a can of Aircraft Paint Stripper thats made for stripping plastic. They make other types so be careful when you buy it. Its specifically made for plastic. It works really well. Ive used it on AC boxes, shrouds and inner fenders.
    I painted the inner fenders for both of my cars with SEM Hot Rod Black. The trick is you have to use an adhesion promoter before the paint. Bulldog is the brand I use. You can buy it in a spray can but it lays out better from a spray gun. It makes the paint adhere to the plastic.
