Wanted some input from my DI.net family. I have decided to paint my side mirrors. I wanted to get them painted to match the body color but the lowest price I was able to find locally was $175 does that seem right? Or should I just get them done is a high gloss black and save some money.

Don't hold back let me know what you really think. I need to know so I can get this done PC (pre-Carlisle). Thanks in advance.

Why not do it your self, good sanding to get good adheasion, care on spraying so that you got no runs, with 3 or 4 good coats, then lightly wet sand again to smoth and remove any imperfec tions, then clearcoat.
Not hard, just take your time and it will come out perfect.
Body colour paint should be available at most auto supply stores.

If you have an extra set I would definitely give it a try. I would love to do mine but the inferno red pearlcoat is really hard to spray properly, even some bodyshops have trouble getting the color to look right, which is evident from my dark ass front bumper!!

I think the mirrors and window trim looks best in black, regardless of body color Keith!

Gotta get your PC mods in though, I'm doing the same thing! lol

Too much red, or no bright silver under coat first.

Waiting

Have been doing that for about two years Rob. Usually when a set appears then I am broke. So I decided the next best thing would be to just get a set of color matching mirrors and attempt to create my own custom signals. Maybe I will just wait until you get ready to take yours back to stock and buy yours....

Well, had I realized this weekend was a 4 day for us, I would have went this weekend. But a huge amount of my cash is going into repairing my den AGAIN from a few weeks ago when it flooded. No flood insurance. But...I am sure I will make it over there sometime in the near future. When are you planning on headed that way? Might could organize something.

Donor

We are going to have to have a serious conversation at Carlisle.

But for this thread I think I have found my donor signal mirrors. Look what I got for $18 delivered. Mirrors are going to be painted next week and then the transplant will be completed. Yeah I know I should have do the transplant before painting but the mirrors were dropped off at lunch and I just happen to run up on these this evening. Gotta love that ebay item 8067243404
