    If no one takes you up on it (which I doubt anyone will), you could do what I did.

    I bought cheap chrome mirror covers off of ebay, and color-matched spray paint off ebay (from seller spraycansunlimited). I sanded the chrome off, sprayed with adhesion promoters and paint, and now I have color-matched mirrors. The whole thing cost $50.

    Yeah that's why I went with the covers. Was worried I would screw something up.

    I just had my stock mirrors color matched about 2 weeks ago. Pulled them off, just taped up the mirror itself, and the guy color matching my bumpers and fender flares went ahead and sprayed them for me. Came out great, you'd never know they're not from the factory.
