Paint Questions

Well some know now that i will be getting the truck painted as soon as the funds roll in..well i had a few questions...

1. should i have my mirrors painted to match the truck?

i will be cutting the rollpan and having the bedsides fixed where it can be painted and roll without a bumper until i find one later after paint..

2. so the questions is should i wait and get a rear bumper before or after paint?
iam detriming the truck to drop the price some on the prep work (yes i know like the sanding on it isnt going to be enough..lol

3. should i take the rear-window and rear side windows out? and interior panels? think it would be helpful when they paint it?

thats all for now...iam sure there will be more..

My mirrors are painted; wasnt too bad to smooth them out and they defenitly arent chipping. Now my valance is a different story - stones + painted XLT valance dont go good.

Yea, mirrors don't take a lot of abuse but bumper covers, painted grills, etc take the abuse big time. Even the hood takes a bunch of abuse too. I've had/have show cars & trucks & my nicks are where I previously stated.
