Check the archinve. It's the same setup as say like hatch trim pretty much...

I didn't even take mine off the car to do it. Black FTW!!

Yeah i say your better off doing the whole mirror. I have a black car and doing caps has almost no effect an entire mirror REALLY makes a world of difference.

please don't do the whole mirror....


oh wait your car's black, it won't look bad. Some car look HORRIBLE with the whole mirrors painted, especially yellow

^^ I agree but black it helps with the whole thing caps look dumb on our color.

Trust me look at a SVT. A black sVT has the whole things gloss black.

technically the SVT has the mirror caps painted and the rest of the mirror is just glossy plastic. [neener] haha just giving you a hard time snack

^^^ I will give you a hard time........Checkers LOL

Anyways he is right sorta, but basically the black ones had pure black mirrors which adds a mirror cap on a black car painted will look werid

no....I have agreed that all black looks good lol. but other colors (like yellow) look HORRIBLE with the mirrors painted all one color instead of just the caps. If I remember I'll take my camera with me and take a pic of it one day
