Default painted door mirrors

yo dudes.
when the autumn sets in in october i have a list of small mods i want to do.
one i'm thinking of doing is having the door mirrors painted the same colour as the car.
so any of you fine posters have some pictures you wanna share.
how easy are they to remove?
cheers rudi

I did the painted Agent 47 mirrors. Much cleaner look IMO but the mirror caps or painted stock mirrors are big improvement too.

I did the AM pre-painted inserts. I am still debating the 2011+ side mirror mod though.

I had the stock 07 mirror painted UA black and installed them. I liked that look, much better than the matte black from the factory. I have since gone to the mirrors from a 12 Mustang with the convex mirror corners and caps painted UA black to match. I like this mirror much better than the stock 07 mirrors. JMO of course.

The mirrors are extremely easy to remove. The inner plastic cover just pulls off, there is an electrical connection to unplug and three nuts to remove.

I just purchased the AM mirror caps, would like to eventually change them out for the 2010+ style.

Gah, another thing to add to the build list. Those painted covers do look great. I can't really imagine you bringing them to someone to get them painted for much cheaper than the cost of the covers.

For my 2012 mirror caps, I went to NAPA and got a can of made up in an aerosol paint. I did the clean up and sanding, wiped everything down with reducer, ran a tack cloth then shot it with the spray. (I tried a spare side window louver before doing the caps to make sure I had the paint down right). It came out very well. 3 days later, I took some compound and glossed it up. Not bad, and I saved quite a bit. I had about 22 in the paint, and maybe 5 in other materials and tack, so for about 27 I painted my mirror cap to my correct color. I have about 2/3 a of can left to paint other items or do any touch up.

If you have the money the Agent 47 mirrors look great. I was skeptical when I got mine but pulled the trigger anyway, and I'm glad I did.

I know better than to trust myself with paint though.

The red looks great. Stands out. Nice.

I had mine painted to match (sitting in the garage color UA) but black with black gloss doesn't stand out as much as a combination of flat/gloss. I went to the 2012 mirrors, as they were only 100 plus postage, so that was close to the cost of caps alone.

They stand out better and they have the different shape (than the 05-09) and one came in UA black already. I painted the other. I like the look and the convex mirror corners, as I have window louvers, so it helps immensely with visibility on the right side.

I'm a big fan of the 2010+ mirrors, I hope to get a set, paint them black and get some real CF caps from Trucarbon *Trufiber's carbon fiber division
