    I am thinking the mirrors need a bit of chromed plastic to accent the door handles and wheels.
    How do the plastic covers look that adhere with 3M tape?

    I am merely interested in the caps and not the full sized covers.

    I have them on my 2nd gen. I get a lot of positive comments for them, they haven't moved in over 5 years and still shine.

    You know that is an idea I hadn't thought of.
    I'm sure the current caps pop right out. The mirrors do seem pretty flimsy and should all but fall apart. :rolleyes:

    just my .02 about that chrome paint, it dose not look like chrome, it looks more like a silver, if you want it to have that real chrome mirror look that paint isnt going to do it, I used the duplicolor chrome paint on a couple brackets, it looks nice but its not chrome

    oh your talking about going to a painter and using that special paint thats like a 3 stage process from what Ive seen. yea that looks good but i would think thats more expensive then just buying new caps lol
