Decided to plastidip the mirror caps white.
* tow mirror skull cap removal *
* tow mirror glass removal *
Had a hell of a time figuring out how to remove the mirror glass without breaking the glass. Well, I broke the passenger side assembly, but I was able to do some of the good old plastic welding to fix it... LOL. Here is a picture of where you pry at to remove the glass. The glass is held on by four tabs on a plate which is held in to the power mechanism by a spring loaded torx screw.
You should see the "pry points" next to the eyelets. Message me for more info if you need too!
The skull caps are held in by four clips, at least on mine. These are factory 2012 heated, blinker, manual telescoping mirrors BTW. I tried the white plastidip spray on them. It worked really nice until the third coat, which sprayed on odd, came out of the nozzle in beads. I turned the can upside down and cleaned the tip after every coat. Finished up with two more coats just to see how it would look.
It was also a much brighter white than my truck... So I peeled it off and scuffed it all up with steel wool, hit it with some mineral spirits and set up a super sweet paint booth in my garage.
I used Rust-oleum Paint for Plastic Gloss White and plan to finish with an acrylic enamel clear also from Rust-oleum. That's where I am at right now... My daughter has soccer practice in three hours, so I am sure I will post the results after that.
