quick question...painted mirrors...
 
ok, i've gotta get some work done this summer anyways, which will include paint, so i wanna get the mirrors painted to match the car, like the svt style. can the stock mirrors just be sanded down and painted? or have i actually gotta get svt mirrors and just paint those? and i've heard things about some of the svt models just having covers??? idk anything about that...are there covers that i can just buy that can be painted and slipped on?

i'm assuming i can just paint the stock mirrors...

All SVTF's have paintable covers. U pull of the cover on the back of ur mirror and put on the new cover. if u buy it from Ford it's a little more but I belive they come painted

sand with a good grit to remove most of the moulding, then use finer grit to remove the grooves, no wetsand necessary. primer twice, paint three times (wetsand here), and three coats of clear (wetsanding again) steered me in the right direction
