Hey guys, I edited the original post, just found out the other day when I washed my ZJ that the overspray got ALL OVER it...you can feel the difference running your finger from the part I masked to what I didn't mask...I can't even wax it anymore...I'm going to try and claybar it off but idk if it will work...you need to mask your ENTIRE zj.

I hope i didn't completely ruin my paint...and I'm sorry I don't want someone else to ruin theirs. Overspray is a b!tch.

On a lighter note...after about a month the paint is looking great! Extreme heat, pouring rain, and wash didn't fade or chip or anything.

Just an update for those curious, after almost a year my painted cladding looks great. A few nicks here and there from normal loading unloading and probably shopping carts and idiots opening their doors that go all the way to the plastic but eh, its a jeep! As far as weathering, through hail and rain and heat and 95% of the time sitting in the sun, no fading that is noticeable

Also on a side note, clay baring did the trick with the over spray! Nearly a year later I finally got around to it and it got it off easily. Was able to wax it too to at least stop the rest of my clear coat from baking away...

If I had to do it again, I would have taken the front and rear covers off and painted them separately... the door cladding I would have probably left on. Just remember...mask! Mask everything! Even the roof! Good luck to anyone else doing this.
