Taurus GL Black Plastic Rocker Panel Peeling

1996 Taurus GL, Pacific Green



it seems like there is some type of coating on the black plastic rocker panel. It didnt do this until today. A couple of weeks ago, I was treating the metal above the plastic rocker, on the driver's side rear door. I failed to mask it well enough, and had a big paint run drip over the plastic rocker. I went to the car wash today, and tried to spray it (the paint run) off with the spray hose, but this car wash has a water stream like a sand blaster, and took off the coating of the rocker, that I didnt even know it had. Obviously, one way to deal with this would be to find another black plastic rocker section at a junk yard (which I did on a previous car, when rust caused the original to fall off). But, I think they're probably getting harder to find, plus, I'd rather leave well enough alone, concerned what unbolting and rebolting may weaken the corroded metal that holds it together. It's just a cosmetic issue, but the car is in pretty nice original condition otherwise. Has anyone else had this happen, and have found an appropriate solution to re-coating peeled black plastic rockers, on gen 3 taurus?




TIA
