Painting lower cladding

Saw this Jeep @ my wife's work and have to admit that the white on the lower cladding looks good.

Thought's ?

Re: Painting lower cladding

Actually not standard on 11-13 Overlands- it's custom painted trim. I'm not a huge fan but would need to see in person. Personal preference thing.

Re: Painting lower cladding

That's a lot of white... and um... chrome.

Re: Painting lower cladding

It's definitely a personal preference thing. the thing I like most about the non painted trim, is the lack of worry about chipping paint and things like that.

The thing i hate most about the unpainted trim is that it turns gray and ashy over time and looks horrible. I use mother's 'back to black' about once a month but it always fades a little.

Have you ever thought about coating your black claddings with Plasti-Dip Glossifier? It adds a slightly glossy finish, plus it protects the plastic from solar degradation, and is easily removable if you want. Just a thought...

Didn't think of that, might give it a try.

maybe it's because i'm used to the way the wk2's look with black trim... but I definitely like the body painted trim on the WK's vs WK2's. Unless your speaking in SRT language and have the painted flares... looks much more integrated.
