Any updates on the linseed oil/paint thinner panel brightener works? I liked that idea but haven't seen any follow up on it.

The heat gun does get it back to original. I used paint thinner as a cleaner before I painted with spray on bedliner.

I didn't see this mentioned anywhere, but I used something called "forever black" it is made to restore black bumpers and trim. It come in a bottle and has an applicator like shoe polish. I originally got it to redo the faded windshield side moulding on my chrysler 300. worked very well so I used it on the jeep cladding. It would have taken forever to do it with the shoe polish type applicator, so I pulled off the top and used a foam sponge. took about an hour and the next day I did another coat. It's been on over a year now and still looks great. no removing, or taping, and no mess. do a search for it, it's easy!

I used an "all purpose" rustolem made to work on plastic, metal, wood, blah, blah. I took all the molding off to avoid over spray to the body. I did about 3 or 4 coats. (ill post a pic when im home).

it looked great...untill I got the thing all muddy. drove around for a few days showin off, then when I went to wash it. all the dryed dirt pulls the paint off. maybe if id had primered it *shrug* the rustolem said on the can none needed. Im sure ill repaint it at some point. but I wont be using rustolem again. at least not with out a primer.

Please allow me to adjust my pants. So that I may dance the good time dance.
And put the onlookers and innocent bystanders into a trance.

Krylon fusion holds up extremely well. On plastic anyway.

I used about 4 coats of Krylon automotive primer then about 4 or 5 coats of the Krylon for plastics ( black satin finish ) and it turned out great. Its only been about 4 months though, my main problem is my passenger side door is a bit rusted out and had the cladding piece fly off going down the road lol luckily I got it back. It needed some sanding and touch ups but not to bad.
Has anyone had this problem and any suggestions on how can I go about fixing it so I don't have to worry about it flying off again?

Thanks, Fasel ( newb to the site )

Agreed I like the all black cladding, I've been tossing around some ideas similar this but this helps a lot n saves me some time lol thanks but I was thinking of pulling it all off but that looks a bit funny.
Nice ride tho man! That's beautiful!!!
