Oh, and my apologizes for the multiple posts. If there is a way to post more than three pictures (without hosting them somewhere else), I'm too big a noob to know it.

Vette that looks great. Excellent Job. When my cladding starts to really fade I will do the same, although I don't know whether I'll leave my cladding on or off just yet.

I really like the look of that. I like the look of the little posts still being there. It looks like some of the armor I've seen for XJ's.

I almost like the look of the Duplicolor Bed Liner stuff better... looks good and stuff, but doesn't look as rough as the Herculiner.

Then again, I suppose I'm one of the few that wants the added protection without the look of a bedliner on the sides of my Jeep

Thanks for the comments.

It's definitely a preference thing. FWIW, if you are going to do it on the cladding, I'd recommend the spray like theone13 did...it's a nice texture effect. But if you pull the plastic, I'd recommend the bedliner roll if nothing else to protect the body. It won't stop dents, but at least it keeps the bottom half protected from scrapes and such.

Admittedly it isn't for everyone, but either way it's a simple and fun weekend project. And besides, for those of us with WHITE ZJ Laredos, it looks AWESOME!

I think it will look good on my white WJ laredo too.

I think Ill pull the cladding, spray it with duplicolor, so there are no over spray worries and I want to clean underneath the cladding and check for rust. Years later if that starts to look bad, I may just pull all of the cladding and bedline the doors and get aftermarket bumbers.

One weekend soon it will get done when I feel like pulling the cladding and getting dirty.

One thing though - if you pull the cladding and want to put it back on, you may want to check around on the best way to remove the rear door piece. If you look at my pictures, there is some sort of washer/bolt that snapped off on mine. I don't know if there is a screw or something on the inner door part, but it doesn't pull off exactly like the front piece.

It's the black circle in the first set of pictures.

I'll research it fully before I do anything, and if I screw it up, I'll just coat the doors w/o cladding. Its going to look much better either way when compared to faded gray cladding.

I know with the front fascia and the rear bumper, they've both got these plastic rivets that are helping to hold them on. So if I rip them off, I'll have to go out and find more of them to replace them.

Maybe that's what the lil black circle is?



In the end, it looks like it'll be way too much trouble to get the cladding off. Suppose proper prepping and taping will have to do the trick.

The plastic rivets you mention can be reused - you pull out the center piece, and it collapses the other side, and then you can just pull them out. But they are different than the one I'm talking about.

This piece I'm talking about is a full screw and washer. I just went and checked though, and if you open the rear door, you'll see the capnut you need to remove, completely exposed. If I had been paying attention, I could have unscrewed it before I pulled them off no problem.



Honestly, now having done it, I can tell you it's cake to take off the cladding. A few screws front, rear, and inside the back doors, pulling up and out from the bottom, and then sliding the brackets back and up. If the brackets break, it's an easy replacement, part #5529 4777.

Heres my ZJ with painted cladding. Its the sprayon stuff. If I hit rocks or trees hard it will scrape off. Bawls is just an energy drink. I like the paint, It covered the rust pretty good.
