linsead oil on cladding

I tried the linseed oil and paint thinner on the cladding over the weekend. Worked well. rained today and still looks good. Hope it lasts, but did not take long, so either way, easy to redo if it does not.

Any pictures? I'm going to do something about my cladding sometime soon. I'm just contemplating paint vs resto vs some kind of rubber coating.

I did not take pictures, but it does look very good. I will try to report how well it holds up.

I tried that a couple of years ago but after a couple of weeks there was a sticky residue on the cladding, it worse off after a few months and it was back to its faded appearance. In hindsight I might have had too much linseed in the mix but instead of trying it again I just painted all the cladding with duplicolor bumper paint, the look was more consistent and lasted longer.

Well after about 6 weeks its starting to look a little crappy again. Not sure what to try next. I tried waxing it in a couple places today to see what that does. I did wash it and it helped the look. Just not sure on the linseed oil yet.
