Default Wheel wells

What do you think would be the best type of paint to cover up that cheap plastic look on the inside those wheel wells. Some sort of rubberized paint is what I was thinking about using. Crewzin, how about in your bags of trikzzzzzzzzzzzzzz turbo

The rubberized paint would be the type to use, but I think it would be much harder to keep clean. I keep the wheel wells clean with a plastic cleaner. It works very well. I'm not sure what you'd use on the rubberized paint.

Default my shop we cater to quite a few elite sports car types, over time we have found that just spraying the cheapest all-in-one tire foam in the plastic fender wells works great. Once it dries it looks good and cleans off all the road film since last time. It can also be used on the engine and under the hood. Just let the foam dry down, the excess will just run off as dirty water. We have won numerous shows with it and it's easy. Don't use tire dressing or Armor just makes a sticky mess

What earringboy said.
The tire foam goes on easy, looks good and allows the dirt and tar, etc to wash right off. Don't forget both sides of the mud flaps too.
