    Side skirt painting

    anyone know of a good place around bergen county NJ to get side skirts painted? ive been to a few body shops where i have been told that they wouldnt paint them cause the paint would probably start to peel off. so if anyone in this area has gotten their skirts painted please give me some input about price and the place you got them done. thanks in advance

    I can paint em

    But i live in Va so that doesn't really help you much. I painted mine this past november and have had no peeling problms. I really dont even have a chip in them even with all this deep ass snow. dont pay more than 150 to get em done though

    Time for a a refresh on this thread. I've had a really hard time finding a place in northern Jersey that will paint side skirts - especially for the target price of $150. Can anyone please point me in the right direction? I've tried searching several times and haven't had any luck.

    If you feel comfortable with a spray can there are a few threads on here about painting the skirts.. I ordered mine from Paintscratch.com they sell a kit with everything that you need. I am just waiting for it to get warmer out so that I can do mine. The kit is like 68 dollors..

    Unfortunately, I can't paint my own sideskirts. I live in an apt complex and have no place to do it. I'd rather just pay a bodyshop.

    i had an 04 and scraped the front so i took it to a body shop in the bronx and asked if they can also paint the side skirts..... so they did it in one day and it only cost me 200 total and the paint never chipped... if you go to macco they will rip u of and say that it will flake, just to cover their poor craftmanship

    When you paint the side skirts do you pull off the black plastic?

    Yes you should remove the sideskirts before painting them.. They come off very easily...
