Just asking if you didn't remove them now and then and clean around area if they were to get wet (as in driving in rain or washing car) could they work as any sponge and hold moisture causing problems with the paint?

I really don't know if they would cause a paint issue, but since they are so easy to remove, clean and replace I do.

Are rocks being thrown up into this channel really that big of an issue? Seems like a fix for a problem that doesn't really exist. Sure rocks can be throw up, but they are thrown everywhere an chips happen (especially if you drive the car).

Bink, still waiting for my GT 350 to arrive, but in doing research over the net I've seen several comments/concerns about how quickly the rocker panel in that area starts to chip. I have a pair that I will install once car arrives. Cheap insurance and I'll just remove them when washing, etc.

Anyone try these? Less than 100 miles on the new car and already see that these would help.

I bought a pair of these after owning the 350 for about 3 weeks, and finding lots of small pebbles in the channel. wouldn't take much to chip the paint. These blockers do not touch the cars paint, just fits in the plastic channel. Worth $14

I agree with you about it really being a issue?? Maybe if you use your Cobra as a daily driver ?? I have yet to see anything in that area other thank dust ??

I have had a set on for almost a year and no problems. I also remove when cleaning the car and no damage to where it fits into.

I live in the foothills and roads are never good. A plus because the pebbles and sand build up on rocker even on an afternoon drive. Just take them out when cleaning.

Installed, very easy and straightforward. After an afternoon canyon run, I already had pebbles in the channels. I trimmed one a bit as it was causing the rocker panel to stick out a bit, but very easy and I'll just remove/reinstall when washing.

Hey Jim, I bet you have some good back roads up your way. I'm in SoCal now but many years ago I lived in Fresno and we used to camp in the Eldorado wilderness area. Beautiful country up that way and all along the old gold areas!!

How did you guys install yours? They're just foam inserts and I'm worried they'll "blow" out, but obviously using adhesives isn't preferable.

I'd like to get my hands on some of that sticky stuff they use in mailers/advertisements that holds but just comes off with a tug.

And I grew up in So Cal (San Fernado Valley) and loved to canyon race back (Decker, Malibu, Topanga). in early 70’s! Enjoy your terran, I’ll enjoy mine.

I didn't do anything special when I installed mine. They fit snug and I don't think they'll blow out. Like others have mentioned, I think it's a good idea to be able to remove them periodically for cleaning.

Ditto, fit nice and snug, not going anywhere until wash day. Also, they pretty much blend right in, you don't notice them once installed...
