Color Matched Side Mirrors

Where can I buy them? Or would I be able to paint them?

I checked trdparts4u.com and they only have the chrome side mirrors.

Thanks guys!

Maybe, but the whole reason I want it color matched is because, the grill is black the mesh for the Satoshi is black, the headlights are black, and the wheels are black. I want something to off set all the black, but IDK

I might do that. Idk tho, the more I think about it I might just go with the door handles color matched, as well as my next project and be done.

Just one word of caution. The mirror covers don't cover the entire black housing of the mirror. The side closest to the cab is still black.

Hard to explain it in words...oh, hell, I'll go take some pictures. Back in a few.

Still I think it's a cheap solution and still probably looks good.

You can see in the first picture that it looks totally white, but when you are in the truck, you can see that it doesn't cover the whole mirror. You can pretty much only tell it doesn't cover the whole mirror when you are inside the cab.

To be completely honest, I really like it. I'd do that if it were me.

Thanks everyone. I'm a perfectionist, and I even stopped noticing after about a day.

Also a tip for painting. Sand the chrome so it's no longer shiny, apply adhesion promoter, prime, paint, clear coat.

I got the paint from spraycans unlimited on ebay. It's a perfect match. Tough to tell from the pictures because the truck is filthy.


Here's a better pic of the color-match.

Yeah... what paint did you use?

I'm fixing to color match some other parts, and I've got Duplicolor "Gloss White" I'm thinking I'll go with the grill first..
