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.

What did you end up using? You remove it all or just tape it off?

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
