    Rocker panel carnage

    My car was nearly unscathed from the track day, but noticed that the lower rockers did not fare so well. This gives me second thoughts about having them painted. This is from 1 day of track driving, just FYI

    The 3M coating should help with that, should you decide to get them painted.

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    wow! I guess I'll be having some clear bra put on the panels when my TT comes in! thanks for the heads up!

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    I can't see any of your pics? Someone knows why?

    I can't see eclou's avatar either.

    They're all linked to the same site. Can't see them either. I guess the provider decided to cut off traffic.

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    Wow, was this after a rainy day on the track?

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    Must be only for you Europeans, I see eclou's pictures and avatar image just fine.

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    Dry day at the track. The track was also relatively clean.

    Here is a direct loaded pic

    What's the difference if you have scratched up black rockers or red rockers? If you like the painted rockers, why would this deter you?

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    I think it would be cheaper just to replace the rockers every now and then rather than prep and repaint them, just like the front chin spoiler.

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    Just had an epiphany - I am going to buy another set of panels, paint them body color, then switch back to these "beaters" for track days!

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    or just buy some painters tape & mask off that area when you go to the track

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    Sounds like the 3M with the painted rockers is the low maintenance way to go. As close to "the best of both worlds" as you're gonna get, unless swapping the rockers back and forth is that easy.

    Re: Rocker panel carnage

    I'd just use painter tape as sdy284 suggested.
