Yes, it's an involved procedure which requires the body shop and painting. I have not had it done (no need, I don't drive the car in any rain or snow for that matter)....

Thanks for the input. That is why I asked because I had read about painting and such and was leary about it. I get some light dirt, like it would be misting on the rear plastic piece that is above the rocker. Glad it wasn't just my car. I can live with it probably, just wanted to see if it was a known problem. I live in Northern Maine where the roads and conditions are often crappy!
