Im just about ready to spray schutz on rockers and rear wheel wells.  Are the plugs at front and rear of rocker along with the ones along the bottom installed before or after you spray?

Also is color of rockers just matte black?

I would think that if the hole edge is stuck on with the undercoating you'll have a hard time to seat the plug properly so I would agree with plug first then coating.
