    Ok Audi nuts, I have a spare set of wing mirrors (Black), looking to paint them or do something different to them, maybe brushed ally look (if poss), any ideas, colour thoughts, had a bit of a search, couldn't find a how to.
    So your thoughs ideas welcome, any advice on how to go about doing something a bit different would be good.

    Cheers

    Mac

    Guy I know carbon wrapped his mirrors and they looked OK. I think if you can somehow get them to look like proper alu ones that's the way to go though.... He already had the proper alu mirrors and covered them up.... wrong on so many levels!

    I did toy with the idea of maybe wrapping them to match my exterior carbon, but thought it may be OTT carbon, like the idea of brushed ally.
    But not at all sure how to go about it.

    Orange! Would be different. May not work so well on DG, but on BB would look great!

    Orange or green would be cool on black like a touring car. Don't think I'll do it to mine though unless I had a big carbon splurged and tucking some 19" multispokes with crazy camber, that would look AWESOME!!!!!!!!

    I keep telling my friend not to do this and he won't listen! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks its a waste.
