    Just wondering if anyone has gotten their rocker panels and front spoiler painted body color. Interested to see what it would look like.

    It won't look good because those pieces were never designed to be painted. Since they are made of textured plastic it will look like you painted over sand paper. They could be smoothed out, but it would take a lot of man hours to do so. Unless you plan on spending a few thousand dollars to do it right it will not look good at all.

    the sides will be all stone chipped and the spoiler will get curb rash....my gt500 has painted rockers and its almost sandblasted at 5,000 miles

    keep the cheap plastic black ones....they are cheap plastic for a reason....high performance tires throw stones back at them

    The black rockers are a design trick to give the car a thinner look. The black splitter on the front and rear spoiler accent the car. IMHO I think a solid color on the rockers would make the car look fat.
