Yes, you would just need to remove the cloth first.

I did it. I had the same cloth trim pieces and i painted them. Just take out the panels and peel off the cloth. then use goo gone to get off the extra glue. then just prep and paint. Way cheaper than buying new trim.

Paint is not the same as plasti dip.

I would NOT plastidip those trim panels. Paint them, or have them painted.

I agree, paint or vinyl them, i had cloth trim on mine i torn off the cloth, cleaned, painted and smoothed then had it vinyled.

Cloth ripped off and before and after the sticky residue is on.



Vinyled



on car



pictures are old and phone quality, ive done tons of stuff since ive done this, but still gets many likes and comments at car shows. Paint or vinyl.

Plasti Dip could be done, but the durability may pose a problem in the future. I agree with others to have them painted. Thats what im having done with mine.
