    So I talked to a guy yesterday on the phone from North Carolina.He was interested in some of the VX stuff I have for sale. He's not a member of the forums.
    He's an Original owner! and got his VX in 99.
    I asked him what color was his cladding was when he got it new at the Isuzu dealership and he said Black...a Very dark black satin like what you see on new cars like the new Jeeps fender flairs.
    He said after about 6 months it turned that charcoal gray and it's been that way ever since.

    Exclamation Cladding

    I Originally Used Showroom New On My VX Black Cladding, However It Has Many Streaks In The Cladding. Just Recently Did The Cladding With Wipe New Which Shows Less Streaks And Is Blacker! Just Want To See How Long It Lasts! If I Am Not Satisfied My Friend Who Owns A Body Shop Is Going To Repaint The Cladding In A Black Satin Color.

    That's what I've been using for a few years now as well. I like it much better than the Meguiars and Mothers products.

    303 AEROSPACE FTW! Been using it since I bought my VX. Lasts two to three months for me. I don't mind doing it 3 or 4 times a year cause it means I get to spend more quality time with her. ;-)
