I just finished (thank God for my heated garage) painting my mirror caps. I apologize for the dirty car, it's been snowing up here non-stop. Also, for some reason, in the picture it looks like the paint doesn't match...it does match though. I also cleared them to give it that factory look.

Please tell me what you think! [dunno]

A side note: I will be getting a roush scoop within the next couple of weeks, so that will be a nice addition [strongman]

it is actually a simple and easy thing to do. just pop off the caps from the mirrors, sand them down, lay down some coats or primer and sand between the coats, than lay some paint down, than put some clear over the paint. It took me about 4 hours to do, but MOST of that time was the time it took for the paint/primer to dry in between coats.

i'd say go for it!

Looks awesome! [thumb]

Now paint your chrome grille (red)!
ya know, I was actually thinking about painting it red to match the color of my car. I'm just afraid of it chipping off due to the grill being prone to flying rocks...does anyone have experience painting their grills?

I've had mine painted for almost two years, and it's chipped a little. I did it with cheap paint though. But its totally worth it.

Looks great man. As for the grill, they made red ST's, so you could buy an oem painted
grill and just swap the black center part out with the silver st center, since the black looks better.
