PPF on Rockers?

Hello - I pick up my MYP next week, so I have been getting quotes on PPF. I've currently landed on getting the full front done along with the rear impact areas. That said, I asked the installer if we should also do the rockers and he said "there's no reason to do the rockers, they are just textured plastic". He recommended maybe just getting mudflaps if I was worried about protecting them.

Should I still pursue getting them covered or maybe just go with the mudflap / replacement route when the time comes?

When people say that they added PPF to the rocker panels of the Tesla Model Y from the photos I have seen PPF was added to the lower part of the front and rear door panels. The Tesla PPF kit for the Model Y only covers, protects a portion of the rear door panel.

I would start with the RPM mudflaps in the front.
You can certainly have PPF applied to the lower portion of your doors also, but the black textured plastic rocker panels don't do well with PPF as others have mentioned.

Yep, I think I'm going to do the full front PPF + rear impact areas and then supplement that with the mudflaps. Hopefully that will cover me.
