It's not hard at all, even with the texture, just be weary of any silicon partials I.e back to black or tire cleaner that may have got on the parts because the paint will bubble or not adhere right. But all I did was clean the part with dish washing soap than used a paint adhesive from advanced auto parts with a few good very light coats and let it dry (it dries quickly 15 to 20 mins) than I did 3 light coats of the mopar spray paint, let dry for 3 hours between coats, 3 coats of generic ultra gloss clear coat (from advanced auto) with 3 hours between. Than I let it seal and cure for a week (I just placed the parts back on after letting them dry overnight and drove for a week with them on. They'll look a little foggy and like crappy spray paint but be patient) than I removed everything again the next weekend and started to wet sand. Finishing off with ultra cut compound and I'll tell you what it's like magic! Crap Aweful finish to mirror!

Re: Complete 2011 to 2014 conversion

where did you get your wiring harness for the headlights? I'd be interested in doing this conversion since my front end has a few scratches from road debris before I bought it, but a lack of a headlight harness is preventing me from doing it.
