Color Matched Mirrors, Opinions?

    Hey guys, I was thinking about painting the caps on my mirrors red to match the truck. I have seen this done on this site in white and it looks great. I have leftover paint/clearcoat from when I did my bow tie. The color looks pretty close to the factory paint. What do you guys think? Should I just keep the stock black plastic covers? I'm just worried that it may look funny with the black border around the caps. Here is a pic of the truck and the painted bow tie.

    I think they would look good red, it would match the top bumper cover.

    I'm going for it. Broke a small piece of the inlay prying the cap off of the second one. DOH! That double sided tape is a pain. Shouldn't be anything a dab of superglue can't fix. Worst case scenario, I will buy some chrome overlays. Here is a pic of the damage. [​IMG]

    Too late to comment?

    I think it'll look great. There's enough other black trim that the mirrors will fit right in. Oh, and next time, try a piece of thin dental floss to saw through that tape.
    Good luck,

    I think it will look nice too!

    Fishing line works great too and won't break as easy as floss.You can also purchase those mirror caps from your dealer,they are $70.00 at my dealer and you can get them in any body colour.

    I was planning on doing the same thing, but ended up getting a great deal on some sport mirrors. I love the uniform look, and it'll look especially nice since you already have the top of the bumper done too.
