    I believe Nigel (NHM) has done it, but I don't think it's as straight forward as it sounds.

    I think he said he will be doing a "how to" soon.

    Not a straight fit, will need modifying at the bases.

    You'll have to, lol, I've done the mod & just have to wire the indicators via 1 of 2 methods, yet to test but confident.

    No, the covers can be painted, as thats unrelated to the modification to make them fit & no you cant use the original mountings at all, must be complete facelift mirrors.

    You need to remove the mirror glass, then remove the small black trim underneath, then unscrew the cover that has a few torx headed screws, then it should lift of.
