I was wondering what you guys all thought looked better. I am getting my front bumper cover and facia painted to match, so I thought I'd do the mirrors at the same time.


I have the stock Mirrors with the Chrome Overlay/inserts and I was thinking of Sanding the plastic down and having the mirrors painted Pewter to match the truck (then put the Chrome pieces back on obviously after).

or Should I buy some Sport Mirrors instead and paint those to match??


what do you guys think I should do? I have stock power mirrors with nice visibility that don't look all that bad IMO, but would Sport mirrors look that much better than painted stock mirrors?

The Street Scene Cal-Vu mirrors can't be beat. If you don't want to lose the little amount of visability go with the painted stockers. Just leave the chrome in the middle, i don't like the way "fully painted" ones look

yeah, i kinda like the way the stockers look and I don't really want to loose power windows(or fork the $$$ to keep them power with the adapters)

I just thought If I liked the way the sport mirrors looked that much more, I might as well do the switch now.


I also probably want to get the < blinkers > in the glass eventually, do they make the same option with the Cal-vu mirrors?


here is one of the only NBS trucks i've seen with painted to match and Chrome on the mirrors.

I agree too, you won't lose much visibility at all. I love mine! The stock ones painted to match look good on a lifted truck but IMO the SS ones look better on a street truck.
