Plasti Dipping Cladding?

Anybody here Plati Dip the cladding on their ZJ? Did it bond well? I searched a few threads and there isn't much info on cladding. Mostly about rims. Plan on dipping the lower half of the GC.

Thanks

I haven't seen anyone plasti dip the cladding. But I did have a friend plasti dip his front grill on his Audi and the plasti dip only stuck to the emblem. The rain pretty much took it off the plastic grill part.

I painted mine with no problems and still looks like it did when I first painted it. (did it about a year ago)

But you can try a spot and see how it holds up.

you can do it to see how it looks but don't expect it to last forever. mud will stain it and its a pain to clean because it will peel if you scrub it. I would say just rattle can it or use bed liner. plenty of pics of what this looks like if you search

I haven't plasti-dipped the cladding, but I have dipped the moulding strip that runs around my Jeep. Its held up great for a year now. Not sure about dipping that large of an area though.

I painted mine with bed liner but everything else I've used plasti dip on (plastic like the cladding) has peeled. Maybe if you prepped it somehow first such as light sanding.

My buddy plastidipped his cladding, I wouldn't suggest it though if you ever take your jeep offroad. He did and it all came off. A lotta people bedline it.
