rainer61 I think I'm gonna leave the sill plates black just because the st wing I picked up, I painted flat black and the sills flow nicely into the wing.. In my opinion lol also I plan to wrap the roof black eventually. But the mirror caps do come off pretty easily. I've dipped them black before, maybe I could dip them white just to experiment! Slipperyniblets, do you have any pictures similar to my angle? So see the side of the car with the white mirros?

Post your mod pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tilt the mirrors all the way down and use a long thin flat head screw driver to pop the clips on the caps. There should be two of them. You'll rotate them forward to get them off, and you put em back on exactly how they come off.

Just take your time and be careful. Also putting them back on properly is a nightmare so take your time there too and make sure they click back in.

How? I could not figure this out, if I can take them off I'll redo the caps

Yes!! Actually because of my skill level and slight imperfections, though it was a difficult decision I decided bite bullet and try.... worst case is I mess up and peel whole thing off...I masked off about 5mm around entire original trim and went around while thing. So now it has a black border following turn signal, top, and interior side etc...doesn't look too bad. I would imagine even if another body color it wouldn't be a bad idea either

Awww yis... that would look pretty sik! To be honest... no need to debate. Wrap it and find out. Just consider whether gloss or matte white (to match or not exactly match wheels). The mirror caps imo would be thr hardest part of the entire car to wrap. I fashioned a trim line on the interior side just cuz there was no way i can forward or back tilt the mirror for my hands to wrap it fully near the base. Skills. Another thing more time consuming would be consider paint match the roof trim pieces (mines matched to tuxedo black but goes unnoticed unless a mk3 owner) that'll blend the body lines nice. By the way our front lip choice looks almost identical haha... I like your headlights too
