Painted (to match) air dam, rockers and mirror covers WK 07 Limited
 
Finally got around to doing this. Cost $250 at a little local shop. The first time I went to get them Friday some bozo had put them out back ON A FLATBED tow truck IN THE SUN on the rusty bed, they flipped onto the FRESH PAINT in the wind and needless to say I didnt pick them up until today. Overall happy with the work tho a little weak in places (mirror edges) but all around well worth saving the extra $200 every other major shop (dealer collision center, paint shops) wanted for them ($400-600 range)

I always hated the black plastic, made me think of the laredo trim. The matched color just looks 1000x better on a white car. Black, green, grey can all pull off the black trim, not the white car tho.

This was the end of my little project of new tires, rotors, painted calipers, etc. Last bit is chrome roof rails (as far as looks go).

Yeah! When i came in the old guy (fat george carlin, pony tail and all) was like "what'd i quote you...$400?" and I told him the $250 and he replies he cant remember anything anymore from the fumes hahaha. Well worth the little investment.
