I know the black cladding looks awesome on the Crosstreks. I thought I'd plastidip the side skirts black to break up some of that blue. Curious to see if anyone else has done it?

I've been wanting to do it to mine for the quasi Crosstrek look and a little extra protection. That gave me an idea to just do a quick edit in Photoshop of our cars. I like it.

Not a fan, visually the car looks better when it looks "deeper" if you know what I mean. The black makes it look like a negative area almost like the underside of the car.

So that is a negative for me Ghostrider. ;)

I believe the question went more along the lines of..."Curious to see if anyone has done it??" NOT "Curious to know your opinion??":unsure:

If it's in the budget, You can purchase side skirts from Subaru for roughly $65/side. (They come unpainted) PlastiDip/vinyl wrap those instead. If you don't like, you will still have painted ones to slap back on and it'd probably be cheaper than trying to repaint a skirt that has been plastidipped in the event that you don't like it. Just a thought...

That's not a bad idea. Because I know that even with the mud flaps, that part of the car takes a lot of abuse from road debris. You can peel off plastidip after time. I know it can take a lot of punishment. I used it on the back of my Jeep about 5 years ago and it still looks great. But yeah, a back up set... I like that idea. Thanks.

They must be the easiest thing to change out too, 6 simple plastic doohickeys.

A second set is a great idea. And yeah they're really easy to remove and put on. I think I did so when I was putting on the mudflaps for some reason.
