Cost to Paint Fender Flares
We are asked this question a lot – what is the cost of painting a set of fender flares? The answer isn’t exactly straightforward, but we can give you a good idea of what to expect. Customers seeking painted fender flares are typically looking for a custom look that matches their truck or SUV. Most choose to paint the flares the same color as their truck. If you have a two-tone paint job (for example, the bottom panel is a different color, which is typical on a lot of Dodge Ram models) or rocker panels that are another color, it is also popular to have the fender flares match the bottom color.
Do-It-Yourself or Professional Painting?
We have a handy guide here that walks through the steps of painting a set of fender flares, but we highly recommend going through a professional shop. There are several reasons for this – 1) the painter can guarantee a color match, 2) an accredited, insured body shop should include a paint warranty or guarantee, 3) professional equipment is used for a look that matches your factory paint job, and 4) it’s a whole lot less of a hassle!
When receiving quotes for your painted fender flares, we would highly recommend only trusting established, professional body shops. Be aware of individuals selling their paint services at a discount – many times this ends up costing more and can be much more of a hassle. Professional body shops have the experience and know-how to get the job done right, so do your research first!
So What's the Cost?
A reasonable charge for a set of professionally painted fender flares ranges from $300-400+. Keep in mind that there are a lot of variances involved, so we highly recommend talking to a handful of body shops and discussing your requirements before choosing your painter.
It is advisable to purchase smooth flares if you are looking for a painted set. A professional painter will sand down the flares to obtain a very smooth finish, which removes any texture your flares might have.
