Side Dip

By Thomas Macauley on

The white car had a broken cover to the left side mirror and no “objects closer” curve.

I acquired a a $9 can of Plasti-Dip and a $55 mirror replacement (Kool-Vue T01321262/FOR010714Ls), removed the door panel, and replaced the mirror.

Before installation, I used the Plasti-Dip to paint the white original driver’s side mirror cover and the new left cover to match.

  1. The black car with the peeling clear coat layer (how common on black Honda Accord 2001s?) will get Alsa Paint Wrap – Jet Black Metallic, which was on sale last week for $56/gallon. That is more like a Plasti-Dip price.
