I see chrome tow hooks so I'm assuming you had chrome mirror tops

WISH I could have got the headlights apart...was afraid I was gonna break them!

I took mine to a professional painter. There are a series of steps you must do to paint over the chrome and make it last. Once mine was done you would not be able to tell it didn't come from the factory that way.
