Here is mine after around 7 months, still looks as good as the day I painted it. I removed the front and rear, and taped off the sides. Then just washed them and painted them with Rust-Oleum Trim & Bumper Paint.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for a grey paint? (Closer to the original cladding color). krylons grey looks a little too light. I used Duplicolor bumper on the cladding and bumpers, which the cladding held up fairly well but the bumpers kind of chipped and peeled. Same with the black i sprayed on the door handles and mirrors. Is rustoleum any good for the plastics?

They make paint specifically for plastic. All the major brands make it. I've had good luck with RustOleum (Plastic). And Krylon Fusion is supposed to be really good. Just make sure it's the stuff designed for plastic. But to be honest, if you just want to get it to look original, I'd suggest getting a hold of a heat gun. If you go over everything with that, you should be able to get it to look new again.

Yeah I've been using the duplicolor bumper paint in charcoal. Great for the side cladding but chips and flakes on the front and rear bumper. Nice dark grey color though.

50/50 mix of paint thinner and linseed oil will make the cladding look like new. Just mix it up and wipe it on with a rag.

I actually used spray on bedliner from Home Depot. My pics are the very first ones on this post. After all this time and a front end collision, it still looks good.

I just used a rustoleum/krylon fusion gloss black on the bumpers. But if you put it on thin you should be able to get away with using a quart on everything.

Mine still looks great even a year later. Car doors and flying rocks haven't got to it yet.
