    definitely check a junkyard first before buying new. The paint cost would be around $150 a skirt, that is Maaco price. I checked with them for my front spoiler.
    Now Maaco quality is only so so, but hell they are side skirts! They are gonna get imperfections anyway from the tire kicking debris from the road. Still should last for a year or two+

    (that should include clear coat too)

    I painted mine bright green... like lime green-ish. I'll find a picture later and show you. It's pretty slick.

    I think they look good black. Your ride is midnight black or midnight blue? guess it depends if you want flashy or subtle really.
