Mirror cap trade?

Just bought an '11 Lariat two days ago. Love it so far but the chrome mirror caps need to go! Looking for someone local, within 30 miles of Dover, NH 03820, who wants to trade their black mirror caps for my chrome ones. Any takers?

If no luck in swapping them, you can scuff them (down to 400 grit), spray them (primer & paint) with rattle cans & your done.
Just a thought.

First off, welcome to the ORG!
The black mirrors are one solid piece unlike the chrome caps which are removeable. I learned this a couple of years ago when I tried the same exact thing you are with my XLT.

I hate to ask such a dumb question, but how do you remove the mirror caps without damaging them? I would love to paint mine black too.

Thanks,

I had mine painted and they turned out really nice.

Angle the mirror glass all the way down and use a flathead screwdriver to push on the tabs.

No problem. I think it would be cool to have the mirrors Plasti-dipped.
