Default body style ?

on my bonneville what does it look like underneath all of the pannels around the car(lower trim)
i am going to either shave mine or totally remove and do a totally new paint job!
Any suggestions on a paint scheme?
I was thinking on a pearlessant color, maybe blue to green?
any help will be appreciated

Gotta show love for the pearl! I think you'd just have to fill in the mounting places really. Maybe extend the body farther, it'll make it skinner at the bottom, that'* for sure.

If you look at BonneMeMN'* picture of his car you can see that the lower mouldings on the doors go with the bumpers, so by removing them the car might look like its missing something......just my 2 cents

remember Bonnememn and I have SLE'* our cars have special body cladding that extends down from the doors and into the rocker mouldings. If you just have an SE then chances are your body moulding dosent extend down all the was into your rocker mouldings

Aren't the moldings the same? What do you mean by extending into the rocker panels? Do you mean they just extend up to the rocker panels? 96-99 SE'* have moldings that don't extend to the rocker panels. But everything else covers the whole bottom half of the doors.

Ok, I wasn't sure what he meant. Because my friend'* SE looks exactly like yours. Do you have a pic of an SE that doesn't have the same moldings? I always thought the SLE for 93 was just the leather and more option packages.

Ahhh. Thanks 1993 SLE. I've never seen one like that that'* why I was a bit confused. That one doesn't look that good at all. Especially since it'* black and blue

Well jordanmgreen'* is like yours.
