Herculiner on plastic side skirt

Hi i've got a 2000 grand cherokee laredo and my side skirts are faded. I've used mother's back to black and it looks really good when its applied but the problem is that it fades really fast! So i've been thinking about using rhino liner or herculiner on the side skirts for a more permanent fix. But i've never used it before and im not sure if it will stick to plastic and if i would need to sand the side skirts so it will stick better. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I would suggest using Durabak instead. That stuff is made for exterior applications and has UV built right in. Herculiner will fade to gray also unless you mix in their UV coating. I'm fairly sure that if you scuff up the plastic and prime it, it'll stick to it. I would confirm that with the product's manufacturer before you buy.

Cool yeah i'll definitely look into that and check with them to make sure that it will work. I've never seen it in stores though, where can i get some Durabak? Do you have any recommendations for the primer that i should use or does it really not matter which one?

I use boiled linseed oil from home depot on my LJ factory fender flares.
On wipe on treatment is good for several months. Brings the look back to new!
Only drawback is the odor is strong for 24 hrs.

for most grand owners myself included krylon fusion is the best product to get your cladding black and have it stay that way. it is also smooth unlike bed liner and really easy to use very little prep needed. I did mine over 3 years ago and it still looks great only a few light spots where car doors and branches have really hit hard. I have seen that it now comes in a wide verity of colors even hammered finish. here is a pic at about 2 yearsafter paint, I used black Im sure you can find lots of threads if you do a search for it.

Some companies make bed liner or coatings that are fairly smooth and some that are rough - some make both.

You guys are seriously awesome! Thank you so much for all of your help! I'll definitely check out those websites and look into the krylon paint too. I'm still going back and forth on what i will end up doing but i should be getting it done pretty soon and i will put up pictures to show you all how it turned out!
