+1 mine looks like its been chewed up
i have the same problem
I havent seen any on mine, but I will now go look.
Not sure if anyone is familiar with the mitsubishi black shit, But i have an 05 endeavor(wifes car)
Paint is ruined completely and mits doesnt wanna do anything about it, they say well it is an 05, And I said what the **** does that have to do with anything? I have a 1971 Volkswagen Ghia with the original paint job that looks new compared to this shit
Heres how to post pics on threads...
Hey I have a 07 xr and I had taken it to a toyota dealer about the fender flares chipping and they replaced both asap for me no questions asked, they are ober 700cdn each. But of course the new ones did the same ****in thing! I think we should all get free paint jobs all around lol! I am also sick of the how shitty the paint is with these trucks mostly the flares but the paint chips easy anywhere.
2007 x runner BSP
mine has this goin on to. is this going to end up as a recall?
If you take it to the dealership and talk with the right person they will replace them for you. Or at least paint them for you. but they replaced mine
depends on the stealership.... casue I can't get mine done...and I only have 42,000 km
Dealership painted my flares and applied stone guard at no charge
Question.. I actually have the samething happening, except on my front fenders. Huge chucks of paint actually gone off. I'll take pictures of it tomorrow when theres sunlight. hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.
I think that X runner is just too fast that's why paint starts to come off..hehehe
Yea me too. I have some chipping going on.
same here lots and LOTS of chipping
How much/what type?
Mine isn't under any type of warranty anymore. Does anyone know how much it would cost to have it done? I know that it would vary state to state, dealership to dealership, but is there a ballpark cost? mine are bad, but I can't post pics presently. I want to get them done well, so I don't have to mess with them again. What's the best thing to apply to them, stone guard or the 3M stuff I've also read about?
i have an 09 swb with 35,000 miles i bought it Feb2009 with zero miles and my fenders are chewed to shit. ill get some pics when i get back to the US.
my flares just started to do it as well.. is there any way to get it fixed or just get them repainted?
I dont think there is a single X in this entire forum that doesnt have this issue. The flare is bound to get hit ,because it sticks out from the main body of the truck . The best thing to do would be to repaint and then make some kind mudflap ... I'v seen it done on Rexrunner's truck .
what do think that getting the flares wrapped what the protective clear film will help after they get painted
It's a good idea to get some kind of paint protection film done to the flares after repainting. I did mine after repainting them a few years back, and had them redone again after the whole truck was repainted a few months ago. The catch is that you can't wrap them right after painting, you have to let the paint cure before the wrap goes on and that can take 4-6 weeks. If the wrap goes on prematurely, it can cause both the paint to fail as well as the wrap to rip the paint off if it ever comes off.
how much more or less does it cost to get them wrapped
Not entirely sure, I would guess if it's just the flares by themselves, shouldn't be more than $100.
I had the whole truck done (flares, lower bodysides, front end, roof, Apillars, hood scoop, door edge guards, tonneau cover keyhole area, tailgate handle, etc) as part of the insurance claim for the sandstorm. The Clearbra work by itself ended up at $1500 when done by a professional. When I did it on my own, it was around $500. I opted to have it professionally done this time since insurance was paying for it (insurance wouldn't pay me to do it, so why not get it done right) and it's a royal pain to install that stuff.
Look at post #39 for what it looked like when I originally did the clearbra myself. I don't have photos yet of the lastest application by the pro shop.
