    Has anyone tried painting their textured black mirror caps with rattle can color match? And maybe door handles too? I was saving my old chrome ones to try but a member needed them more than me so their gone. I'd like to try mirrors first because idk how door handles will hold up

    I've thought about doing the same thing...here's a thread from another forum where a guy did his door handles...seems relatively simple

    Normal black mirrors. I'd be painting them the greatest and fastest color

    I was thinking of trying this too. I am lookin at the paint at automotivetouchups.com but trying to figure out how much to get to do the mirror caps and handles. 2 12oz can be enough do you think?

    I actually bought an 1995 F150 because I didn't use the Tundra so it just made more sense to get something older for the time being. I plan on buying a new one once they do the redesign.
