Default Plastic Body Cladding Removal?

Has anyone ever removed the plastic body cladding on the sides of a 99 bonnie or similar? Wondering what it would look like.

I think it would look weird. The factory ground effects would make the door look deeper in. Then you would have to fill the bumpers will bondo to give it a smooth look. I tihnk its time for somebody to do a photo chop.

Ummmm....if you remove the cladding on an SLE or SSEi (or SSE) it'll look like:

An SE.

That'* all there is to it. The SE didn't get it, the SLE/SSE/SSEi did.
