Re: Anyone put in the Smoked Mirror Turnsignals yet? (quailallstar)

I smoked mine with some spray from a can, It worked really good and looks nice. I've had them smoked for about five weeks now and they are still holding up to rain, highway, bugs, etc...

Mine are on order. vdubshawty ordered from TMT and should have hers very shortly. Anyone who ordered/ is ordering from Rich has a couple week wait ahead of them.

To remove the mirror caps, you have to pull out on the thin piece that clips to the base of the mirror in the front. Once that's out, you can get the tips of your fingers under the "nub" part of the mirror cap- the part that covers the swivel base. Just pull up on that and it should release.
Once you do that, you should see the two screws that have to be removed.

Oh, I know. But I also remember reading that a couple friends installed them for you, so I wasn't sure if you were familiar with the method or not.

I figured I'd post the tips. Since I just did this yesterday, it's fresh on my mind.

Call 'em and have them come back and remove them again for you.

How do you remove them? I was trying to remove mine yesterday and it doesn't seem to be moving. Looks like you need to apply some pretty strong force but I didn't want to try it because I don't know how they are supposed to be removed.

I smoked mine body color, united grey. I mixed the body paint with clear and sprayed a bunch of coats, then did a two part epoxy over it. It will never scratch or chip. It looks perfect, like it came from the factory. I would post pictures but its raining and dark outside. The mirror has to come completly apart to get the lense out. plus the oem lenses are only $26 bucks from the dealer and you can smoke them any color.
