wing mirror removal

Post by morgage27 » Sat Jan 05, 2019 3:58 pm

I drive a Corsa sting which comes with white alloys, wing mirrors and bumper accent which I am in the process of changing to black. Does anyone know if the outer 'shell' of the wing mirror is removable to be painted or will I have to take the entire mirror off?

The outer covers clip on to the base but be careful you do not break any of the plastic lugs.

I reckon you'd be able to do it pretty easily. Is there any update on this? I have a sting myself in red and white.

I've got a red and white sting also. Planning on either painting or wrapping all the white bits (wing mirror, bumper) and getting black stripes and getting my alloys plasti dipped to black. Anyone else done this and have any costs? As well as insurance

Do you not like them? I wasn't too excited about the racing stripes when I first got mine, but over time they've sort of grown on me I guess. They certainly add character to the car.

They're alright, but my stripes have had a stone chip and when I went for a wash? Its basically starting to come away. So decided I want to change all the white to black, found the wing mirrors in black but not sure how the front grille comes off, anyone have any ideas?
