Using beige plastidip to repair peeling trim?

i have the infamous peeling trim issue now, especially around the driver side interior door handle

does anyone know if respraying it with beige plastidip would work well to counteract this? would it be possible to make my own plastidip shade to color match the interior trim?

there's also that colorbond stuff, although that may be better for leather than for rubberized plastic

mine is not nearly as bad as that pic, and replacing that door cup thing requires replacing THE ENTIRE door panel, that's probably like $200 for a brand new one

I'm just going to throw out a guess that plastidip won't hold up near as well as the original plastic did...like at all. If you are able to tear the plastic up anywhere near that bad, plastidip won't make a week.

I'm quickly starting to think plastidip has become this forum's 'duct tape'.

of all the criticisms i have heard for plastidip; durability is rarely one of them.
it'll probably hold up much better than the stock trim, it seems to survive being on wheels for a very long time....
i'm more worried about cleaning it

Another alternative is to vinyl wrap those areas. I'm sure professional vinyl wrapping shops can do it for you. It's a cheaper alternative than to replace it completely.
