    Personally I wouldn't spray them.

    Keep an eye on ebay for second hand sets as I am sure they pop up every now and again.

    As far as I remember, there is a screw underneath the wing mirror which holds it in place. I have a spare one in the house which I will look out and do a "how to guide."

    like boydie says you wont get a good result best looking result is to wait on housings coming up, until then if you must id go for matt silver with a satin laquer which should come close
