Mirror Covers for '06 (Towing Mirrors)

Hello All,

I had a run in with a post and my drivers side mirror at a Taco Bell.

I scuffed the mirror but didnt break anything. I have seen the chrome covers that you can buy thtat would cover this up, but does anyone sell a pre painted cover or one that is paint ready?

Thanks,

Kyle

Sorry to hear that, but at least you didn't break it... I'm kind of interested as well.

you can order a "smooth paintable" OEM cover from Ford, but you will have to have it painted.

you can also buy the chrome OEM cover from Ford to the tune of around 90.00 plus. thats what I choose to do on my truck.

both of these OEM covers replaces the ones you have. they do not go over them, like some of the aftermarket stick on's that are out there.

the new covers also include the turn signal. they come that way.

Great info. I am going to send my truck in to have some warranty paint work done this week, so this may be a prime time for me to have them order and spray those mirror covers as well. I really like when the mirrors are matched to the body color. The chrome is nice as well, but I am trying to de-chrome my truck as much as possible. I already replaced the front chrome bumper with a painted one. I like it much better.

so you can't just have painted the oem black plastic to match your body color? You have to buy special ones?

the black ones have a rough texture to them, and the body shop told me you can paint over chrome*the ones I have now) but its better to just get the paintable ones

I have heard of others "burning" them smooth with paint thinner. the thinner kinda melts the roughness away.

me personally, i didnt choose to go that way when I had my door handles painted to match the trucks color, and they look fine to me.

you prolly could just use a real high grit paper and slightly smooth the "rough" covers down.
