A little advice.
If you mold the plastic ground effects to metal body panels, the sun will make them look like $hit. The sun will make the 2 diffrent materials expand at diffrent rates. Instead of a nice looking "factory seam" you'll have a jagged seam where you joined them. I'm just giving you a heads up, but do what you like.

im in for losing the ground effects too, but if you really want to do it them try some fiberglass, but your best bet would be to have a shop do it since any type of filler wont be that fogiving when baked in the sun (cracks,splinters etc etc)
