Hey guys, just wondering if painted splash gaurds would look good on my BRP sedan? I searched but didn't find one in my color with it done. What do you think? I did it on the white car in the back of the pic a year ago and it has held up well.

I say yea, it would look like part of a body on the car. I saw someone used color engine paint with a glossy finish and it looked great

I painted them on my sedan. Since I am lower, after a day, the paint started chipping.

That would make sense. Quality seems to slightly decrease with each generation. My father is looking to purchase a 9th gen V6 within a year. I sat in one the other day while I was at the dealer and I think it's a much better car overall.

I have thought of doing this myself and recall seeing a few folks post pictures of their painted guards. The chipping part concerned me so thanks for mentioning that. To counteract this, I considered using a transparant, plastic film on the tire side to deflect the rock, dirt, etc. damage that would contribute to the flaking. In the end, I decided they look good black and match the other black ascents on the car.

You would tape the part that faces the tire off. You mask at the plastic seem of the guard. Again, I did my moms avalon and it's been a year and it looks perfect. But I too have been honing back and forth whether I should do it or not.

Thanks for the clarification. One of the examples I saw had the entire guard painted, so I thought that is what you meant. Your (clarified) way sounds much better! :)
