I just finished my front arches, the rears have been done for a month now and have shown some signs of wear. Primarily at the bottom inside, where stones and spray have hit it - not much tho.

Sanding is the most important thing, I did a couple of peices without sanding and it just peeled off even waiting 24hours for it to dry.

Interior looks good mate, I had bright silver a while back but changed to black now.

it looks like you had been sanding the parts to get rid of the textured look on the plastic parts, you could have used filler primer instead mate
