I'm blacking out my truck and want to paint the chrome parts on my stock mirrors gloss black. My question if anyone knows is how can I get those covers off or would it be better to paint them while they are on the truck? Im not sure if they are stock or were placed on there by the previous owner.

could just powder coat it....wouldn't think it would cost very much at all being that small

I painted my stock chrome mirrors white, scuff em up really good, clean them with some sort of chemical cleaner, let them dry, put some primer on scuff it up a lil more and paint!

I painted my chrome mirrors on my '01 and it never seemed to work for me, i would paint them and then i went through a rain storm and it started coming off so i found some black ones on ebay for 100 brand new with all the options!
