Plastidip Cladding

Seen somewhere the plastidip doesnt bond well with wj cladding, any truth to this?

Painted my grill yesterday and love it, gonna do whats left of my badges and then maybe gas lid as well.

Pics would be sweet, thanks

Its doesnt bond to plastic well. It will peel off the cladding on its own.

This past weekend I sprayed on Upol Raptor liner on my clading as well as the front and rear bumpers. It sticks good, looks good, and was about $110.00 for the kit which includes a sprayer. Ignore the green tint in the photos, that is from all the pollen in the air, I hate spring.

Won't stick to Laredo cladding, will stick to Limited cladding because it's painted.

How durable is this stuff? Looking to paint my cladding but don't want to spend good money if I just have to replace it soon anyways.
