This has been covered like 15 times, yes it can be done, your paint shop is just lazy, or dumb. search around theres lots of threads about this. You can always do it yourself or find a real paint shop

look around at other shops, textured mirrors and valances can be painted, its a lot more work to sand out all the texture. all the exterior plastics on my truck were sanded down and painted

Im also in the process of doing mine, check the link in the sig. And if you just want colormatching you dont really have to even smooth them out, it just looks better if you do.

Edit: Pics of truck?

it can be done, but it takes alot of prep:read:
find another shop, and be clear when you get a estimate if you want it smooth and shiny like a fender make sure they understand that!

theres a shop in Rincon that can do it as well. Harolds Paint and Body I believe is the name. Its right off Hwy 21 near the old out of business ford dealer.
