Spanish term or phrase: faldones en color de la carroceria
These are some kind of exterior molding for an automobile. Any ideas?

Thank you!

English translation:bumpers the same color as car body
Explanation:
Bumpers also refer to the part which the rubber bumpers are attached to, the thin metal "skirt" around the car. It is obvious from the context that it has to be the metal bumper, since the metal can be painted and rubber bumpers can´t. Otherwise all the cars would be black! Espero que te ayude. ¡=

rubber bumper


Explanation:
It's what protects the car from hits from other car doors, shopping carts, bicycles, etc. It may be molded or not, depending on the number of pieces it's made of.
