    Default FINALLY Ordered a set of Tow Mirrors Power/Heated/Telescoping w Amber Turn signal!!!

    I finally got around to ordering me some nice tow mirrors for 259$ off of Ebay. They have every option available with the tow mirrors so i pulled the plug and ordered them. They aren't the one's with the RED led's inside the glass they are the one's that are mounted on the outside of the mirror and have amber led's that light up. The reason i got these is because they were about 60$ cheaper and when i get around to buying my recon smoked amber l.e.d. cab lights it will match it perfectly. I might go ahead and order them tomorrow and add them onto my bill me later account since i dont wanna pay up right now lol. If anyone has any info on these mirror's let me know they look damn good for the price i bought them for! I guess i'll sell my stock mirrrs and pay these mirror's off fast as i can. Any comment's or advice is welcome.

    Thanks, Jake

    I also have a question about the amber turn signal. I was wondering if i could tape and cover my mirrors and tape them off leaving just the plastic cover that protects the turn signal and possibily buy something to smoked it? Also if so what would be the best bottle to get? The last question is would the turn signal be affected any with it being lightly tinted?

    yeah i want put but maybe two very light coats but make sure to make them even. I don't want them too dark just not that orange color how they come from outta the box. The reason i wanna do that is when i buy my recon smoked cab roof lights they will basically match. The led tailights will go good with the recon red and white light bar and it only turns white when in reverse i think its pretty cool. I also go other things i ordered on the way hopefully some will be here this week and next week!

    Yeah i just didnt think i had to take basically the whole door panel apart before i could even remove the panel! The mirror getting installed really shouldnt have taken that much but i guess GM made it that way for a reason who knows. I will also have a new tailgate cover because my old one is scrathced up allot and this one is a lil bit different and is the Buschwacker smooth and is paintable. I have my painted door handles to match my truck on the way will be here monday. I wanna get my tailgate cap painted to match along with my tow mirrors sometime soon. I might pick up a can of vht night shade to tint the turn signal on outside of my mirror but it will be a very light light shade maybe just go over it twice. Anyways pic's will be posted tomorrow just took me longer today to install them being i was at my apartment and it started raining lol.
