Painting the Wiper Blades

Hi there,

The black is starting to come off my blade body, not the wipers itself. What kind of paint should I buy to paint it back up?

Thanks

just a general purpose paint should be good enough but i don't know how well the withstand the rocks and debris from the road. why not just replace the wiper blade?

i had a similar thought, my sister just got a 95 DX and hers are like that. how much it would be to get whole new wiper blades? i would think if you just used regular paint, it wouldn't handle the debris well at all

I painted my wiper arms when they began to fade. I went with some Brite Touch general purpose spray paint. I painted them a flat black to keep the stock look.

mine faded too. For a quick fix I did a couple coats of black paint that I had used for my trim ( that's what it was meant for). I know that can't be the best way. But so far so good. It's been probably 8 months or so since I did it and only now did I notice a little chipping. And I didnt use any primer or clear coat. I imagine if I did, I wouldn't have any problems.

Remove them, there should only be one bolt. lightly sand them, then use flat black rustoleum. Rustoleum is ment for outdoor use and should stand up to the elements quite well.

oops! i knew it couldn't be that easy
well... there's always those bedliner paints that you can get at an auto parts store. if those bedliners can withstand having stuff dropped on it, scraping it, etc... it should be able to withstand some debris and bugs off the road. i forgot how much they cost for a small can though... not too much
