Has anybody successfully achieved this? I asked my local body shop and they said that these moldings contain oils and if painted, will eventually peal and/or crack. I know we've seen them painted on show cars but (because you can paint anything) has anybody done this and has it held up?

Any Body that tell you something like that has not perfected the art of painting plastic successfully.

I have not done my WK2 yet but I have done other car with no peeling or lifting.

The fact that the 2014's are coming with the same parts painted says alot.



Here is what I would if I were planning to have my plastics painted I would refrain from putting any type of wax or dressing on them for a couple months so that there is nothing in there beneath the surface when they sand and prep it for paint.

Where did you plan on using this vinyl on your car.

I was thinking about it for the plastic moldings near the wheels..don't know how it would hold up but I think it would look sick:...especially on the big plastic piece on the front and rear bumpers

I think the 2014's have different parts like the Srt8 with part of the molding built into the front and rear bumpers.

I would almost do it myself but I'm afraid of sanding down the plastic.
