Option to make side mirror body colored

I have been trying to find a way to have the side mirror colored. I have been asking body shop around the area with no luck. I asked the dealership, first they were able to order me a cover, but when the parts is here, they told me it wouldn't fit the mirror and they were asking $900 for a new set of mirrors. I was giving up on it. I stop by a shop recently and they claimed they can wrap the mirror for me, they did, but I am not impress the job. There are edges on the side mirror and the guy in the shop told me the edge will be shrink later on, but instead it started to peel off. I wonder what kind options do I have?

Damn. That is a terrible wrap. The only option you have is to have them painted or buy some mirrors for a Laredo of the same color. You can't buy the caps separately. I went with new mirrors.

I cannot find anyone in the area will paint on top of chrome. If I buy a new set of mirror, it will causing me $900 for it.

I bought a set of chrome caps off eBay and sent them to Scott's Paint & Performance for paint (he's a sponsor here). He also painted the rear brow on my GC too.

Indiana. I shipped him my caps, and he shipped them back when they were done.

Also, I have a set of chrome caps that I took off to put the painted ones on if you're interested. Drop me a PM if interested.

They pop off and pop on. Do a search around here, tons of info and there's instructions somewhere.

Re: Option to make side mirror body colored

I don't trust EBAY as far as I can throw it.

Buy a color matched set off the All Mopar Parts website. You'll need to send them an email with a VIN of a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the colored side mirrors you want. They'll then order the entire side mirrors along with the color matched side covers (or shells).

To keep costs down, just select the VIN from a Laredo of the color you want. You won't be using the entire mirror; just the covers. You can also search this site for simple instructions on changing the covers out.

I ordered a set for my 2015 Overland in Granite. The total cost was just over $300.

FYI. Scott's vendor thread has been closed for almost a year now. You can't post comments or create new threads in his forum. I have tried contacting him twice via email and he has not returned either message. His last post was a year ago so he must be too busy for this forum to respond to questions or accept any new projects from us needing his service. I'm not sure why his is still listed as a "Premium Vendor".
