Default splash guards

I have a habit of scraping the **** out of my rear splash guards because they stick out so far. What would be a good option to cover them to make them look less stupid?

How would plastidip look on a marine blue pearl car?

Rest of my paint is flawless but these damn splash guards...

Pic for reference? They're supposed to stick out to keep the crap from getting flung at your car.

Depends on what color plastidip you use.

Well I don't want it to look stupid like a 12-year-old owns it, so it would be black...

Well then it would look stock, wouldn't it?

OP probably has the OEM splash-guards that are color-matched to the vehicle.

Either paint them or get a set of aftermarket urethane or similar splash / mud-guards in black - they'll provide more protection and coverage than the OEM pieces.

OEM splash guards are the same paint color as the car...

Do you have the regular ones or the aero sport ones? Is there any reason you don't just take them off?
