Gloss black mirror caps?

Hey guys was searching around and only saw carbon fiber mirror covers, does anyone make or sell the mirror caps in gloss black?

Thanks

Haven't seen those but I would just get the carbon fiber caps painted by a body shop. Wouldn't be too expensive.

Better solution, vinyl wrap on your existing mirrors.. Too bad you're not local, I could wrap these for you.
The way i do it: remove the mirrors and tuck the vinyl all the way in instead of just leave them intact and trim it like all the "professional installers" do. No one could ever tell my mirrors are wrapped because there are no trim or cut exposed.

^^ Tim,

That looks fantastic!

I may try this. Do the mirror caps just pull straight out? Any pointers on how to remove them?

Alan
