    Standard Skirts

    Hiya, i was wandering if you can paint your standard skirts the same colour as your car? Or if anyone has done it? I have black SXi and i like the design of the standard skirts but just want them to match my car. This also saves me spending out money to get some new skirts, which would be ideal as im a student

    Yep has been done, basically a case of smoothing the skirts to remove the dimple effect, prime and spray
