i can see again

alright so i picked up some larger mirrors the towing ones or what ever, they are the ones with no lights on them...after almost running cars off the road cuz i cant see them with the little paddle mirrors on my truck i knew it was time to get new ones...question is, one mirror is a gloss black and one is the regular plastic(only the outer part of it), should i paint them black or should i paint the outside part white to match my truck? either way im going to paint them so they match what kind of paint should i use? post up some pics of your trucks to help me get a idea too.

anyways here are the style of mirrors i got just the outside part of it is gloss black and one is regular.

I agree it looks good all white! But If it were up to me it would look like the 05-07 King Ranch Trucks
