Hi All,

It's been one of those mornings, after getting blocked in i manage to open the door on a post and thought I'd chipped the door, after fortunately polishing out what was paint from the post I'm embarrassed to admit I then managed to reverse the car into my wall and have grazed the skid plate and need a touch up code to start the repair.. Anyone got a colour code for the grey skid plate on a Monte Carlo Blue Stelvio..

Regards ****head from Essex

Scouring the internet for that part and the colour code it appears the silver one I have isn't available or only comes primed but there are some new ones that possibly match the latest trim.. two versions of Black, matt and gloss Miron finish in either standard or tow bar version... Might just get the Matt Black one and get the silver colour matched and repaired ....

My Milan is Vulcano Black and I had the skid plate colour-matched to the bodywork from new. In my opinion, is looks much better than the original satin silver.

DaleC1964.. yeah I agree, absolutely 100% on the black car, figure I'll need the black grill as well if I go down that road.. I'll probably keep the silver bits for resale.. didn't want to start blinging up the car really but these items do make the car look better, especially from the rear..

The silver part always strikes me as being too narrow as a feature. I’m trying to resist getting involved in changing wheels or silver bits. As it is the Speciale suits the internal boot rails and bike attachments better than a blacked out set of window surrounds , skid plates etc.

Has anybody replaced their skid plate with another such as the diffuser type from the Veloce Ti?

Did you just remove the torx screws then unclip round the original? No damage?
The bodyshop wants two hours to remove the bumper to change it over.

I was messing around my bumper with exhaust openings and the amount of pain I went through trying to reach via wheel arches was insane. If it turns out the skid plate is removable I am the biggest muppet ever.

Where did you get this skidplate... have only seen the standard shape (tow bar and non tow bar) versions at Partsworld.. Still considering swapping my scratched one out.. Defo an improvement in looks. I never did find the paint code for a respray either..

Thanks Cue... There's some nice pictures of the part fitted in place of a standard skid plate further down that page (y)
