So 1 thing I noticed about my car when I bought it last month is it appears to have some kind of paint/undercoating on the rocker panels.

I was informed this isn't an undercoating. Rather, it's a factory paint. But it has a texture like an undercoating... oh well.

Whatever it is, it goes up to just under the door on the sides of the car.

Passenger side:


Driver side: (yes I know this has gap issues; to be addressed soon)


Close up behind the driver side front wheel:


I was told this was stock.

It's beginning to peel and flake away on the passenger's side, so I'd like to redo it.

Can anyone point me towards a factory or factory-like paint to redo this?

Thanks! =)

a lot of people get rid of that when painting their cars to make it look lower, that black stripe makes it look higher than normal from the side...

Well if it's factory I'm keeping it Smile

I'll take a closer look at it this weekend and see if it's gloss or whatnot Razz

Ah, I've got it now.

My car was repainted before I bought it, so it looks like the entire car was painted over then they put on the undercoat where the gloss black used to be.

I'm on the fence between redoing the gloss black or painting it the same color as the rest of the car Razz

I know my car was repainted. I think the black gloss is stock and the matte is painted.
Since it's wearing thin, I was thinking of putting black bedliner over the old black to help protect it.



Just drove home on wet leaves; I didn't realize how bad I need to give her a bath. Razz
