    Aluminium colour paint

    I'm wanting to get the brushed aluminium s4 wing mirrors for my a4 s line. I have read somewhere that the new oem ones are just painted the aluminium colour. I was thinking of painting mine instead. What would be required, just the paint and a lacquer. Can anyone recommend a paint. Also what about painting the chrome window surrounds this colour too.

    Thanks

    Good look painting brushed aluminium mate, its not just a colour, tbh im not sure how they get the brushed effect, if its done through the painting process or if its how they polish it after.

    Sorry dude i cant really help you but im keen to know the answers to this too as it does look cool!
