I am interested in paint matching my side view mirrors, has anyone done this? I would like to see any paint matching pics. Especially how it was done, the dealership, or how you did it and what you used to do it. I would love to see any to know how it looks.

I know from experience that it is hard to paint plastic and have it stand up, especially mirrors that are exposed to everything including stones.... I cant give you much advice on how to do it, I have just done simple plastic parts on my sled that arent exposed too much... would be a sweet project to colour match the mirrors! good luck!

The factory blue was painted over w/ the Satin Black w/ Metallic Red on the hood that's shown in picture 5 and 6. Been running that for a few years. Wanted to keep the black theme but its a PITA to maintain. Chose Satin Orange to hide the dirt yet give that custom touch.

Full vehicle wrap was a great alternate for my needs and then i can always go back to my Satin Black down the road if need be.

Really nice wrap, how much is it for something like that? it looks like a perfect matte look that I wanted and the color too! im guessing you had the shop do it?
