When you painted your handles and mirrors were they textured? If so how did you paint them? I heard the textured stuff will peel...

I didn't paint my original textured black handles and mirrors, I bought new prepainted ones. I got them from a ram parts site. Ill post the link when I find it. It was like $35 for each handle and $200 for each mirror.

So far my current mods to turn my Express into an R/T are going well. So far I have the sport hood painted and installed along with the paint matched mirrors and door handles. On Wednesday I will have the 2" rear lowering kit installed. I am still waiting on my new spyder headlights and HID kits to come in, they were on backorder. As far as looks all I need are those 22's. I will have some pictures soon.
