    Question about mirror covers?

    When i bought my Astra SXI mk4 the previous owner left some chrome mirror covers on the car (which i hate with a passion)
    Just wondering wether it would be possible to spray them black to match my car or wether i need to buy new ones?

    You could spray them although for the cost of paint & laquer it may be cheaper to just buy some. There is a guy on ebay that sells the covers & offers a painting service.

    As for your chrome ones....dont paint them, theres ppl out there who might want em...actually I might take em off ur hands if u dont want em....I can even swap u for a set of originals that have been previously painted but need a little prep work if ur interested

    That would be great however the chrome ones are a little tatty now and scratched.

    Well in that case the seller above is top notch....ok the listing says they could have a few surface marks and imperfections but if the paint is way off then he'll lay on some fresh paint like he did on mine.

    £20 for 2 freshly painted mirrors is bloody good in anyones books.

    Just get the paint code of ur drivers door shut to be on the safe side

    Are they genuine Irmscher covers? If not, they might be the stick on type like the ones I used to have. If that is the case, the original covers may be hidden under them. Best go check that first just in case! lol.

    Good job. Imagine finding that out after buying new ones and sending ages painting them up!
