What a waste!

Well I spent all day trying the diy for removing the grey coating on the rocker panels. I ended up scrubbing all day and have less than 2 square inches clear. I don't know if superclean changed their formula or what, but it didn't soften itup at all. Anyway I need some help finding an alternative. What side skirts will fit on a 94 325i sedan? I don't want the M ones. I've seen on later models they have plastic side skirts but there is a gap on the 94 between the fender and door at the bottom and I haven't been able to find any online besides the M style. BMW sells replacement metal rocker panels primed for 125 each side but it has to be welded on. That might not be a bad choice since I have some rust holes in it. I was planning on cleaning off the grey stuff and the rust and bondo and paint it. Please help me in finding some alternatives to choose from and post some pics.

Take your panels to a shot/sand blaster, they did mine in around 1/2hr.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
