Yes. The key is prep. Wash, scuff with fine grit wet-dry, wash again with xylene, prime, then paint.

The paint on mine still sticks after scraping rocks.

Nothing special. 800 grit wet-dry, xylene, and Rustoleum primer/paint. I used satin but go gloss if shiny is your thing.

It should go without saying that if you want a professional looking job then remove the cladding first.

The Rustoleum primer/paint are the kinds that are used for plastic ?
