Re: repainting tow mirrors

might try that Krylon Fusion paint thats supposed to adhere to paint on the molecular level.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again....


I LOVE MY NEMO MIRRORS.

And yes. Those are the ones I'm painting.

Re: repainting tow mirrors

I would sand them down to get rid of the dimples and texture and such, unless you want them to remain with the texture. I had started doing this on my tailgate handle and 200grit seemed to be a good start to knock them down and then from there can go up to 400 and then maybe wetsand them, or just prime sand and paint

Re: repainting tow mirrors

I would clean them well with dish soap at very least, and then wipe them down with alcohol.
