Think I can salvage these?

I have two 2012 side mirrors with all the power crap, but they are badly damaged!

Was thinking about just getting some of these dumb chrome covers to just cover it up, might have to paint them since I'm not a big fan of too much chrome. FORD SUPERDUTY CHROME MIRROR COVERS 2008-2011 (LOWER) | eBay


Any better ideas?

if they dont have paintable covers available just scuff the chrome covers and spray em up. Id highly suggest the use of plasti-dip. just search it on here. alot of guys use it including myself. It almost has a factory appearance once dried as well. and is pretty durable.

the mirrors that are on the truck in my sig pic are a set the the last owner must have thrown on here him self. My truck doesn't have power mirrors so they just cut the pigtail for the power off and stuck them on. The pass mirror has damaged glass but I found replacement on ebay for under $20.
I was thinking about offing them cheap.
