Another option is to have your panels painted at a body shop. I did that with mine and it wasn't that expensive. If you take the panels off and drop them off it will even be that much less.I went from Ruby Red to Speedway Blue with Silver Stripes

That looks awesome. I thought of that, heard horror stories of paint peeling due to poor prep job to the plastic panels. How long has it been since you had that done?

I changed my dark blue to Green metallic in 2010 on my 2006 Pulse. Now after 8 years I have some stone chips but otherwise fine.

I removed the panels and rubbed them down to create a base for the spray job. Ran about $200 per panel at that time. I also removed the photon torpedo launchers at the back and fitted UK rear lights with the high intensity red fog light.

Have really enjoyed having a unique Smartie.

vinyl wraps are pretty easy, and not permanent :)
