Painted Cladding!

Just painted my cladding, wanted to show it off!

Future Projects include 2"BB, general grabber 245/70R16, some rims(thinking about cragars but everyone has those, maybe some ballistic jesters?), gutter mesh the grill, paint the body.

I removed all of the cladding. And I used krylon fusion Satin Black. I just cleaned it with a little alcohol and painted. Time will tell if I did a good job. hah

It makes it look ten times better, if your cladding is as faded as mine was haha. But yeah I really recommend it to anyone.

Oh and Pm sent
