For those with painted rockers

I have an white 08 wk limited. I can't stand that black trim(rocker) on each side. I saw TheAngryMinnow just had his painted. And it got me thinking...
For those with painted rockers how are they after you have them installed after a while? Do they chip from road debris? Is there any difference with the SRT8 rockers? I wont be attempting to paint them myself at all. I'm curious what others have experienced painting the rockers as it seems it would be a cheaper option.

Re: For those with painted rockers

Anything that close to the tire is going to take a beating. Why not get it painted and then wrap it with clear vinyl film? I found some on www.summitracing.com and use a strip where my rear wiper rests to keep it from scuffing the paint. People use it as a "clear bra" along the front of the hood, or for rocker protection. Here's the Summit part number: SLC-T9020
