05-07 paintable mirrors

I found a set of paintable mirrors with the turn signals, heat, and everything else that came as a factory option for the 05-07 trucks. I know they can be added to the 99-04 trucks very easily but the problem is that the mirrors are coming off of a King ranch so the backs of the mirrors are white. Is there anything i can do to make them blk other than painting them? Could i change the covers? Any help is appreciate and links or pics would be great

thanks

Re: 05-07 paintable mirrors

you can just change the white covers to black ones or pop them off and paint them black they do come off cause that is how you gain access to the mirror lights to put in recons or what ever it is you want to do to them so id say esiest thing is to take em off and paint them or change them

Re: 05-07 paintable mirrors

Thanks for the info man. I kinda figured that would come off but I wasnt sure and didnt know how to do it. Im gonna look on recon's site and see if they have the instructions on how to put the mirror lights in and hopefully it will tell me how to take the cover off as well.

Re: 05-07 paintable mirrors

There are tiny clips that run the whole way around the cover. In order to pop these you have to access the 3 clips behind the actual mirror. The best way i found was to get a long skiny flathead screwdriver and pry the tabs. Work your way around the cover easily because the tabs are prone to snapping. Hope this helps!
