You may be able to buy the mirrors painted already to match your paint code from GM for about the price it would cost you to have the mirrors painted.
I found the part numbers for the painted handles on another chevy website along with the mirrors for my truck...since I already had the mirrors painted i did order the handles today.
Do you know your paint code?

Its all in the prep. Start with like a 800 grit wetsand primer 2 coats wetsand with 1000 grit, Paint 2 coats, wetsand with 2000 grit, Its like sanding with newspaper. Then 1 more
coat of paint, and buff it out. I didnt use any clear coat
on mine.. All my paint was from raddle cans from Wal-mart.
Most important part. Wax & bug remover Before the primer.
And a tack cloth before each coat of paint..
