Hey Guys,
A lot of you may come across this, I looked at my rear vision mirror the other day and went "yuck" got to fix that.....here is how it's done.

Image

First.......remove the mirror...rub down the whole plastic area with 80 grit sandpaper to remove the "powder" coating.

Image

Next, rub with 120 grit down to 600 grit to make the area smooth:

Image

Once you have done this tape up the mirror and spray with flexi-prime then add stone guard if you want the textured effect:

Image

Image

Once all is dry use VHT vinyl paint (light grey SP953) to coat the exterior:

Image

Once dry, remove the masking and replace in vehicle:

Yet another cordia part saved from the bin! :)

Need I say it, but yet another top quality refurb & salvage Andrew. Looks great, nice colour match on it too.

Keep the walkthroughs coming, invaluable information & keeping this forum alive & kicking.
