I have to pick and choose my free time with two little ones, so this weekend I managed to do a few more things. I liked another member's idea of painting the side mirror caps, thought I'd give it a shot. I didn't hit them with any sandpaper or steal wool, so they came out a little rough. I plasti dipped the TB emblems on the front doors. I like the look but it's already peeling. Next is the front end. What's everyone think? Thanks. Mike.

Its best to take the caps off....they are brittle and break pretty easy if not done right...but do look awesome when done. The look good body matched too. .02

Thanks fellas. There are 5 tabs holding the cover on and yes they're very brittle. I broke one on each side. You can get to 3 of them by moving the mirror far left and far right. You'll have to fold the whole mirror assembly all the way in, then all the way out to see the other 2. Have a flashlight and thin flat head handy. Good luck and take pics.
