    Mats over new Paint

    I'm in the process of painting one of my XL's, it's already sanded and ready for primer.
    I bought a new set of two tone Hydroturf mats to install after and I’m wondering if the mats could eventually peel off the paint and come off.
    I believe the factory paint is much stronger that what I’m about to apply, anybody has had or know about the mats coming off a re-painted ski damaging the paint job and in addition, trashing the mats? Should I mask the section where the mats go and not paint over it?

    I have painted 2 skis with no issues with new mats coming loose. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Just make sure the surface is clean before you apply the new mats
