    Painting BO mirrors chrome?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I got black optics package on my car, love the package as a whole minus the mirror delete. Has anyone painted their mirrors chrome? I already ordered some of the covers off eBay from China, I think I already am regretting that and am now considering just taking to body shop and having them painted. Has anyone tried the caps or painting and can share some insight?

    Wondering general cost of painting too?

    Why not just swap the mirror caps with someone that has chrome?

    I would but whats the chance that we are physically close enough so the mirror covers arent stuck in transport for too long.

    I'm sure you'll find someone willing to trade. Many folks out there like the BO option over the chrome. Its all a matter of taste!

    I'm in Quebec, Canada... so other than shipping it overnight, which may end up as costy as getting a CF mirror covers from ECS hehe
