The "rockers" (not skirts) were actually never black. IIRC they have a gray coating, and there is actually colored paint under it. Some go through lengths to scrub off the coating, but the best way is to sand it and completely repaint. The later cars that came with side skirts (96+) had the rockers painted body color, with skirts covering them. To complete the look you would paint the bottom parts of the front and rear bumpers as well (which were left unpainted).
