    I had forgotten about this post. Going in I knew I would probably have to touch it up from time to time. I got almost 2 years out of the first treatment. Lots of sanded mountain passes in winter. The second time I started with the adhesion promoter. I found it well worth it. The pics are from this morning I will probably do it one more time once the winter tires are off as I plan on selling it this summer. Good luck 55D5CFDB-112C-4F67-A09F-02CBB2C022BA.jpeg

    IMG_8700.jpg IMG_8701.jpg I I removed and painted my running boards with VHT Epoxy.
    They came out great and have been through the car wash several times.
    Also Start painting the cladding. Just did the front wheel arches with dupli-color.

    I'm probably going this route or getting aftermarket running boards. Plan on having the truck repainted all one color and the tan boards would look odd.

    I agree it's all in the prep!! I removed all my trim and bumpers and used the Rust-Oleum trim and bumper paint and its been almost a year and it still looks new.. I took my time and made sure I hit every little spot.. I washed with soap and water then used alcohol before applying paint.. Well worth every single minute I put into it..

    RR99 - that turned out good.

    I’ve never taken those trim panels off. But seems like every time I’ve removed any other piece of trim, I’m break off the mounting clips. Any tips for how to get them off an on safely?

    Thanks for the pictures!

    I took off all the door panels and pushed the clips through from the inside.. 0 broken but i did order a new set of clips off Amazon because the casket like material that helps pull the cladding tight to the truck was pretty flat and and worn. I didn't want them to go back on loose and add to the rest of the rattles my truck has.. LoL
