    Silver mirror COVERS - not entire mirror unit.. Help appreciated

    Hi all,

    I spoke to a lad on here a few months back (can't remember who, but was a grey a3 fairly low on fat five's) who had a set of nice silver mirror covers/caps - I asked him where they were from as I fancied a set & they will now tie in really nicely with my new bentleys.. He told me they were off eBay and he got them for around £35 IIRC. I found them after he linked me, but didnt buy them as i had other things to prioritise.. Having just searched again I can't find any other than nasty chrome covers & ones for around £100

    Anybody have any idea where I can get a set around the £35 mark?

    Thankyou.

    Yes I would like a link as well, for 35 you can only buy the chrome covers either the part cover or the full case. You could plasti dip the chrome with Clear looks good:

    Thanks matey! Do you reckon buying the chrome covers and spraying them myself would do the trick?

    Personally I would just look on Ebay for a pair of silver ones like I did, but I guess buying any colour, prepping them and spraying them would suffice. Depends on your painting skills as getting a good finish is not easy, hence why I just bought a set that were from another car with a decent finish!
