Wow that looks very nice and (from your picture) cannot tell it is not factory. Good job. , Plastidip and vinyl are great cause it is just a peel away from back to factory.

Easier than vinyl! Read that our mirrors are too angled and you have to 2 piece it to vinyl it.

Not true. My mirrors are Vinyl'd and was done in a single piece. Just takes a bit more effort.

*disclaimer* it was professionally done.

Looks great! Any luck for Max Steel? I'm thinking my only option is to try and find someone to swap with.

You could always try anthracite or grey plastidip.

That looks surprisingly good. I'm on the hunt for a set of bright white mirror caps to go with the painted door handles I installed a bit ago. Might give this a try and see how I like it.

Looks great!

Re: Plastidip white mirrors on bright white overland

This has been on my to do list for 3 months - finally the warm weather is here.

Any tips?

I read on dipyourcar forum that its better to add a dark basecoat (like anthracite) before applying white, since white is thinner. What do you think?
