After putting on the black wheels i decided to de-chrome the truck and do paintmatching so for fun figured i would make a thread to show my progress.

Heres the start of it: Removed billit grill, will go back on when grill is painted.

yeah and it looks good, i just dont know if i want to do my whole mirror or just the covers?
I've been contemplating the same thing. I'm taking a bunch of plastic parts to the painter on Wednesday and I'm going to see what the price difference is between just the caps or the whole thing. I think getting the whole mirror painted looks best, but I would be content with just the caps.

Yeah my painter said he thinks it looks better to just paint the caps because the textured part of the mirror flows into the flat black rubber seal thing around the window better. I'm guessing he just said this because he doesn't like sanding mirrors lol. My truck's dark grey anyway so it will match regardless.
