The (by far) more common approach is just film (Oracover, Profilm, whatever). Needs a little more maintenance over time to ensure the edges stay stuck down, etc, but it is light and looks good (although not quite as good as an expert paint job buffed to a high gloss and even waxed)...
And that, my friends is why I just cover the darn thing with film.
