base skirt panting

Because I can't afford to buy an oem lip kit yet I just wanted to know if anyone has ever painted the side skirts that came on the base models. Iv got that blue silver color Honda used to have but I won't be able to match it perfectly but I can get close. Anyone have some pics to post?

Re: base skirt panting

But all those ppl are just re painting them black. Of course you can do that. O needed to know if anyone's painted to match. So ludezilla thanks for having attitude and not answering my question. And Richarddd did you do them your self and what paint did you use?

Re: base skirt panting

Touch Up Paint from PaintScratch.com

follow the instructions on the site to find your paint code. it's more expensive than standard spray paint, but it's a lot better.

Dude! He link you a DIY for painting them? What does it matter if its black, silver or pink? It can be done , someone took the time to show you how to do it. Get your paint that you think will work and do it. I don't see your reason for attitude.
