2009 SRT8 Wing Mirrors?
 
Does anyone know if just the cover of the wing mirrors can be replaced on the mirrors? Reason is i decided to run my wing mirror down a fence last night and my girl just got a price for a whole flaming new mirror coming from the states at US1140 + GST (15% and then government tax here in NZ) to replace the whole mirror? Is this correct or are we just being tucked?

If we can just replace the case part (the part the is painted) is there anywhere where we can source one of these from? ie EBAY???

Thanks fellas

Shit thats alot better but still dam steep. Anything over 400nz dollars we get stung government duty on. Its a joke. Is there anyway that i can just place a new back plate on the whole unit. The whole mirror still works and. I was going to get it painted but seen this morning that i broke a wee peice right in where it swivels (you cant really see it unless you know its there). But i just want to keep this baby as mint as possible.

Thanks

Ask the seller to declare a lower value on customs declaration

Okay i just found this guys for super cheap. However as you all know the SRT8 is heated and electric. But my question is... Can i buy this unit below and just use the backing on this one to replace the one i broke???

But that Is not the same mirror. Yours is painted and that is not a paintable mirror.

Oh shit really. I thought you could paint plastic? So the mirrors above that Black Ops showed me come painted or are a specific material that can be painted?

Your gonna have to search for your mirror I just lead you to the food now it's up to you to eat LOL.
Have whoever ship them USPS they don't even look at it with customs if I'm not mistaken.

Oh yeah thanks for that, except i have no idea when it comes to these sort of things. Hell i build drift cars. So have turned to you guys for information. Seeing as you lads may have fiddled around with a few mirrors here and there you may know the ins and outs. but i guess ill just have to attack this myself.

the basic laredos come with black plastic mirrors. overlands and the srt have painted mirrors. they are totally different. you can look for painted mirrors in any color from scrap yards on ebay and have them repainted when you get them. i have chrome covers on my black plastic mirrors and then i had the covers painted. that was easier for me, but since you already have one undamaged mirror you will need another painted one to match. the chrome covers will not match the other mirror you have.

here is a pic of my painted covers on black plastic mirrors

Dam thats not bad, you cant even tell. But yeah i get what your saying about having one good mirror. I just need to find a decent mirror for its cover and get it painted. Left a few questions on ebay but no has got back to me. Quite hard living in little old NZ. No one even has parts for the magnificent machines. Everything has to be bought through a Jeep dealer and they charge the earth for factory parts.
