    Hey everyone,

    I recently had some road debris come up and smack the rocker panel running from wheel arch to wheel arch just below the driver's side door. As this is a piece of heavy duty plastic and easily removable - I feel I can probably take care of this myself for installation. Does anyone know an online outlet I could order a new, painted rocker panel through?

    The color I need to match is Silver Gray.

    They come un-painted. You'd have to get a body shop to paint it for you. Probably will match fairly well, since there's a body line the entire way any color difference won't be noticeable.

    I figured that would probably be the case? Any recommendations on where to pick one up? Aside from dealer :)

    Order online? Tischer? Pelican (realoem.com)? Advertisers in Roundel.

    greetings
    I've been in the paint and body biz for a long time
    If you have a straight color you have a better chance at a good match,
    The color that you have you should probably give a piece of the damaged part to the shop they can then give a close to perfect match- IF they want to take the time to shoot some paint match panels.
    It's all about you your car and the match you want
