"Slippery" isn't really an issue, stock it's painted metal!
They're better described as 'scuff plates', to resist/cover up the scratching of the paint there from accidental contact. Mainly a beauty item.

Has anyone tried any of the vinyl material? I was thinking of the carbon fiber look, along with some places on the interior but was unsure if it would be slippery when getting in and out of the car.

The longest part of this is waiting for the paint and clear to dry. LOL.

That's a bit more than I paid. The pieces I used were about $3 a piece.

Great job CJohn! I found some universal sill trim at Advance Auto. A pair was $15 and you would need 2 pair for sedans. Don't know how this compares cost-wise.

Just to let everyone know, that I've had these sill plates on for a while and the paint and clear coat have been holding up strong. There's some shoe scuffs on the clear which was expected, but I can still wipe them clean with no damage to the paint and clear. Just thought I'd throw this in. LOL.
