Well, I took the 15$ plunge for a big ol' roll of this stuff. I'm no expert, but this stuff is pretty darn sticky/tacky. I cleaned the underside of the fender with some purple power and dried it up real good then started slappin' pieces of that stuff on there.

It's not heavy at all, which I thought it would be. I used a roller and ran it over the strips and went around the edges really good. I only did the pass. side as that is the only side the liner is out. I'll test it and see how it does.

Here is a link I found while searching:

wouldn;t new (or used) stock plastic fender liners be lighter and more durable...

Well....as i've been schooled lately, "every ounce helps". However, this stuff is light. What I put on was EASILY less than the weight of the full liner that ripped out.

I just didn't wanna put another junkyard liner in there and have this possibly happen again. The used liner was gonna run me 15 or so bucks, so I figured i'd try this. Also, less crap to get in my way if I need to get in there to access something.

I wouldn't recommend everyone go out and to this, but if you have a beat up liner that got chewed up and spit out.....I would.

As a matter of fact...

I was doin' a body lift on my Explorer, the girlfriends Sentra was outta gas......so we took my slow race car to go out to eat and visit my parents. It survived some back road bumpage, some 80+mph interstate driving and on the way back on the same roads we got caught in a light rain, enough to use the wipers.

I honestly forgot all about the stuff untill my compressor hose got stuck around the Mustangs pass. front wheel as I was reeling it back up. Everything look just how I left it.

Probably not worthy of anything on Mythbusters, but so far so good. Hmmm, I seem to say that about most of the things I put on my car. I probably should shave off .001mm of that material. You know, unsprung weight and all. Every little bit helps

Yea, I just measured off "patches" and put mostly on the thin fender metal where potential rocks could hit. The piece you see in the picture is there to hopefully divert debris/water away from the door jamb.

You're probably thinkin...."Damn, I don't want that shiny crap inside my fender well!" When in actuality, you can't even hardly see it with the big ol' tire takin' up all the fender well. I really had to angle up good to get that pic!

On a side note, that stuff really did deaden up the fender! You can tap on it with your finger and it's just nice solid thud. Go to the other side and sounds like acorns fallin' on a tin roof!

I wouldn't be concerned with people seeing it. ####'em if they don't like it. My car already looks beat to hell and back, I aint putting anything under there to prevent any possible further damage. Hell, my car never runs long enough for me to worry about anyone else seeing it out in public anyway.

I was just curious if you put it on up above the wheel too. If I did care, that's the area I would be worried about.

Does the liner sag over the years? I've had my car lower than its currently setup now and I've never had a problem until recently. Isn't there sections where you can trim to avoid the rubbing?

It took most of it's damage early in its life from wide R-compounds and not enough spring. It had been trimmed/cut/massaged and pulled over the years(mostly by the actual tire, not me ).

We had a course a few months ago where my co-driver kept pulling it out somehow on this big 180* turn. I have no clue how...maybe he was cutting it sharper than me or something. I was appx. 3 seconds faster so I know that it wasn't the "right" driving style that was the problem.

Chianti anyone? MFE?

I've painted it all black and plan to do the other side after I get my tires flipped on the rim this week. Seems to be holding up fine to 130+ speeds.

So aside from it still sticking, is it working out for you for your original purpose, Tony?

Just to review, this stuff is still holding up. I went ahead and did the drivers side. I used the 'rest of the roll I had to line the roof of my Jeep when I was doing a headliner.

Awesome. I am going to have to go get some today. I pulled the inner fender liners months ago to help with clearance issues (17*9s with 36mm offset with 275s were barely touching the liners at full lock). Looks like a can of black paint will be bought as well. Good tech!

Isn't there some kind of control unit above the drivers side fender liner on our 99-04 cars? I started to pull mine once and saw a control unit looking piece so I shoved the liner back in place.

I can't remember. I do know there is a box with a jackload of wires in the pass. fender. I think it's the CCRM someting'n or other? As you can see by my pic, I just tagged an' bagged it. Seems to be working.

The cruise control unit is under the driver side fender. The CCRM is under the pass fender. Losing the CCRM is bad. It's a relay for all the major components in the car i. e. radiator fan, fuel pump...

You guys do realize that a new fender liner at a dealer is $25. Hardly worth all this work.

If you keep ripping them out due to large tires that have been moved in the fenderwell and sharp autocross cuts/turns....then I find it useful to not hafta stuff it back in there and hope it stays again for the 'rest of my runs.

I also wouldn't consider this "work".

I finished this mod today. Simple and easy and should help keep debris out of the door hinge areas. Thanks for the tip!
