I have a '90 red TS with the black spoiler and rocker panels, but am considering painting them to match the color of the rest of the car. Here are my questions: 1) Several body shops I visited say that the black rockers and front spoiler have a "rough" kind of finish (very rough on the spoiler - less so on the rockers) and it will take sanding and lots of primer coats to get smoothed out to paint red. Is that the case? Do the color-matched 348's have a glossy painted finish on the rockers and spoiler? The body shops I have visited are very hesitant to take this on because of the change from a "rough" finish to a smooth one. 2) One body shop said "Don't paint your rockers red - they will show every rock chip that you get." Anyone else had experience with this? Is it true? As an overall observation, I have visited 4 quality body shops, and 3 of the 4 were very hesitant to paint the rockers and spoiler a different color for me. All quoted at least $1,000 or more to do the job. Can other 348 owners kindly tell me your experience with all of this? And recommendations on "to paint" or "not to paint"? Thanks!
