One of the problems with that kind of stuff is; if the part being treated is above any painted/decorative item, when it rains you'll get streaks all down the nice, pretty paint.

Been there, done that, sold the T-Shirt

But it's still better than a sharp stick in the eye

I repainted the trim on my 3500 with the fusion paint from walmart. Prep is the key, mask off and degrease.

After you guys try this, pm me. I'll get you taken care of after you blister the gelcoat or paint.

I've used 303. Its ok on camper stuff, but didn't do much on textured wheel flares, in my opinion. We use to use armadillo wipes on the avalanches when they first came out. We could do the wipes one time under warranty for customers that were getting tiger stripes on their cladding. It worked great. Heard it only lasts a year or so.

I switched to a black color cover but it shows age more than the white one did. I'm also considering painting it & other black plastic trim on my TT.


Please do give an update on how the painted cover holds up.

Update....the paint held up well, I made sure to put it on a thin coat, just enough to get it black again. The prep work took so much longer, especially when I had to degrease otherwise the paint will kind of bead up on the plastic.

Have you tried this?
I've done it on 5 jeeps so far.
No blisters anywhere. The wipes and sprays do nothing...

KK, Im curious to try. I am reserved to try it since decals are touching the fenders. On other areas, I might try it. The stuff I used did a decent job and is holding up still. (Back to Black)

I use a heat gun all the time to take stress marks and scratches out of interior trim and textured parts. I just wouldn't use the heat that close to paint like that guy in the jeep video did.
Plus you and i may have a little more experience than the average joe who would be trying this. You can bring the mold release to the top heating it, but its going to be temporary just like all the wipes. Plus they didn't show what would happen if you touched the plastic before it cools down. Finger prints can really be hard to remove!
