How To: Chrome to Black Mirrors

Hey guys, I am wanting to change my chrome tow mirrors to black. Its on a 2012 F250 Lariat. I know painting chrome is tricky. I heard it was not a cap but it was a whole piece. Anyone know for sure? Does anyone have tips for painting if it is not a cap?

Mine just had chrome caps on it, you can pop them off with a screw driver. Point the mirror all the way down and you can get in there to pop them off and get some PTM ones

Agreed


the chrome is a biotch to try and paint because it's hard to scuff up enough to have paint bond to

I have a '12 with 1200 miles on it, powerscope/fold and signal all black. Mint condition. If you have chrome caps and your mirrors are mint (and I mean no chips etc on the chrome), I'd love to swap. Send me a PM!

My passenger cap is scuffed up and chipped from a swipe, I dont think anyone would want them. Thanks for all the input though, I will try to find some black caps.
