No, they are just the stock mirrors with a gloss white automotive spray paint on them. The same stuff I used on the grille.

I mean is the plastic textured? In the pics it looks like they are. If the plastic is textured I would use some high fill primer and sand them smooth and then paint them again.

Not really. I mean, it's kind of textured, but hardly enough to notice.

Looks good man. And I hate to pick like this, but whe are you getting your windows tinted? That would make it look 100x better. Just my opinion though.

It wasn't bad before, but some of the LS package trucks have the color matched grille.
