More about cosmetics than technical...

Anyone get REALLY bad rock (or rather, everything that's floating on the road) chips on their mirrors? Anyone have a poor man's (i.e. too cheap to pay for mirror bras) solution to stop this madness? I used to think my mirrors were flawless, now I have a chip for every square centimeter!

Try these people: Paint Scratch

If you really want to go all out, you can repaint your mirrors and use a rubberized paint additive that will also prevent chipping.

You could get a roll of the plastic 3M clear protective film. I use it on my motorcycle (on/off road) headlight and put it on my roomates RS2 headlight s I installed in his Audi ($750 complete - OUCH!!)

It's completely clear, seems to hold up and will not chip. I doubt anyone else would know it was there but you and it would certainly stop chips on rear view mirrors. It's TOUGH stuff.

check it out at the parts store next time you're in.

Good Luck,

When I got my car painted they blacked out the mirrors and I think it looks really good. Plus, if eventually they start looking bad I can just paint them flat black again and not have to worry about trying to get the new paint to match...
This is the best pic I have on this computer of the mirrors...

armourfend makes a nearly invisible film that protects really well.
