Chrome mirror cap removal

So way back in '06 my F-350 was ordered with the chrome package...
Is it possible to just pull the mirror caps off or will it leave a big recessed area?

Yup you can do it.... Trust me I finally decided to do it and it worked GREAT!!!

Heat gun/ or if your like me, use your wifes hair dryer while shes not home

Seriously I used a hair dryer and it worked awesome! Heat it up a bit all around, then start heating an area and peeling it off with your hands. I broke apart the small 1/4" part that goes around the light because the rest peeled way easier without it holding to the mirror sideways.

Get er Done

It looks like a big piece of plastic, is it a thin sheet of chrome on top of that?

its like an 1/16" think piece of chrome covered plastic on top of your factory plastic mirrors...

Are your mirrors painted to match your truck under the chrome crap?

Just don't take a screw driver to them and scratch them up... use your hands and you'll be fine!
