Subaru WRX (2022+ ) Rocker Panel Paint Protection

Subaru WRX (2022+ ) Rocker Panel Paint Protection is a popular aftermarket solution designed to shield the lower portion of a vehicle’s body, known as the rocker panels, from damage caused by road debris, stones, mud, and other environmental factors. These panels are typically located between the front and rear wheels on both sides of the vehicle and are particularly vulnerable to chips, scratches, and dings. To protect your vehicle’s paint and maintain its appearance, you can use various products and methods:

  1. Vinyl Wraps or Decals: Many automotive shops offer vinyl wraps or decals specifically designed for rocker panel protection. These adhesive covers are available in various colors and textures, and they create a barrier against scratches and small impacts. They are typically easy to install and can be removed without damaging the paint underneath.
  2. Paint Protection Films (PPF): PPF is a clear, self-healing film that is applied to the vehicle’s paint. It provides excellent protection against rock chips, scratches, and minor abrasions. PPF is virtually invisible when properly installed, maintaining the vehicle’s appearance. However, it may require professional installation for optimal results.
  3. Rocker Panel Guards: These are rigid or semi-rigid panels made from materials like plastic or metal that are attached to the rocker panels. They provide strong protection but may affect the vehicle’s aesthetics.
  4. Spray-On Rocker Panel Protection: Some automotive shops offer spray-on protective coatings that create a durable barrier against damage. These coatings are often textured and can be color-matched to your vehicle’s paint. They require professional application.
  5. DIY Solutions: For budget-conscious individuals, you can apply clear protective tape to the rocker panels as a DIY solution. While not as effective as PPF, it can provide some level of protection.

Here are some important considerations when selecting rocker panel paint protection products:

  • Cost: The cost can vary significantly depending on the product and whether you opt for professional installation or DIY solutions.
  • Durability: Some options are more durable and longer-lasting than others. PPF tends to be one of the most durable options.
  • Aesthetics: Consider whether you prefer a clear, almost invisible solution or one that provides a decorative or textured look.
  • Removability: If you plan to remove the protection in the future, make sure the product you choose can be removed without damaging your vehicle’s paint.
