Default Tow Mirrors and Plasti Dip

Well after 2 years of wanting tow mirrors I finally found a guy who traded his truck in and took the tows off. I got a good deal for the full package and cant wait to get them on. I want to plasti dip them then use the glossifier, the problem is I live in Canada and have 3 cans of black just no glossifier. So I want to know if I do them now and then in a few weeks when I can get a can of glossifier will it still work? I am having trouble getting information on the specifics of the gloss. Just wondering if anyone has used it and if they waited or did it all at once.

I would wait but there off the truck now and I have a paint booth and can do it right now.

Thanks

E

Lol. Your like me. Wait 2 hours and say f it and just do it! Looks good and I'm pretty sure the gloss idiot can be added any time after applying the black. If not, peel it off and do it again. It won't bankrupt you.

My opinion on this though is that the mirrors are likely to get hit by rocks and bugs, probably even tree limbs since they stick out so far. You may be dipping them mirrors every couple months to keep them looking good.
