Default Inner fenders

Should inner fenders be smooth or textured like under coating?

I think they should be smooth, but not glossy.

But rhino-line style would look better on some rigs, just depends on the build

X2 undercoating is not usually installed at the factory. It would be alright I just personally think smooth but not shinny.

Flat black
Textured attracts to much dirt. Next thing you know the fender is mud not black.

I am going to try textured first. Then If I don't like it I can make them smooth.
Personally I think textured is better.

Not trying to hijack but empty quarts of oil work well for scale fender wells.

I used textured paint for plastics on that. It looks great.

For inner fenders I was looking at paint mixing cups or jugs to cut up.

I plan on putting some inner fenders on my current build. I have seen people cut up and use extra stock TLT and other tires they have laying around that fits in the wheel well.

I vote smooth. Textured may look alright, but just be sure the texture is scale, too. If it is too rough or bumpy, it won't look right.
