Colored Tint for Side View Door Mirrors

Anyone know where I can purchase this? I was looking to tint the side mirrors on my doors slightly blue to match my paint.

Looking to do something similar to this....



Please no in this thread, just asking if anyone knows where I can purchase this, not telling you that you have to do it to your truck. I have google'd w/o success.

If it's the glass your after...you can just put on some tint like on car windows. I know there's colored glass tint out there. A film is what i'm talking about.

Look at your higher end cars BMW, Caddy, Mercedes, etc... They all have these bluleish tinted mirrors. Also I Chevy did it with black tint on the Tahoes back in the 90's they automatically tinted themselves when someone came up behinde you the same as your rearview would do.

i doubt its a tint, its probably some special make up in the glass because its not blocking UV lights its just an anti glare coating like photo lenses

I am talking about a similar product that would work like interior window tint. It must be strong enough to last in the elements (because standard window tint is on the inside)

To answer your question: I want to to it for appearance, and it is a rare mod.
