Yep, the air dam is factory painted.

I did the whole project with the doors open. I masked the tops so the paint wraps inside about an inch.

No, the front is factory paint. I didn't remove anything.

Re: White Painted Rockers

Okay, thanks for the feedback. Once it gets warmer here I have to do this, it just looks awesome! I'm trying to get some white door handles as well, order a set from a junk yard and the guy told me twice over the phone they were white, get them and open the box . . . their black!

Also - how much paint and everything did you order/use? I'm going to do the front air dam, side skirts, door modeling, bumper pad, front license plate holder, and side mirrors. I want to make sure I order enough, but don't want to end up with a costco amount supply left over.

For the rockers (with maybe enough left to do the moldings or bumpers), you'll need:

1 scuff pad for each part
1 bottle prep solvent
1 can adhesion promoter
2 cans primer
2 cans base
2 cans clear

Re: White Painted Rockers

mind getting a couple of closeups? were your rockers textured? The 07s are and I remember daniel's offer to paint them at $225 included detexturing them to smooth them out.

I used rattle cans. I have paint guns, compressor, and I'm set up spray, but for this project I wanted to try the rattle cans. I don't like cleaning paint guns!

Daniels offer was fantastic! I just had a hard time contacting him to set up the deal. If you can get him to do it for that price, I recommend going that route.

Yes, mine were/are textured. My front air dam is also textured, and painted from the factory. I know some people don't like the texture, but I like the factory look of it. It's hardly noticeable, really.
