I dislike my mirrors - paint or plastidip....

Hi!

I've a 2007 naked FZ6 and I'm not a massive fan of the shiny chrome style mirrors. As all the aftermarket ones I've seen look a bit poo, I thought I'd paint them.

Does anyone have any idea how best to go about this? I'm considering Plasti-dip as I can get a matt black finish that won't look ridiculous but I've heard bad things about the product. I could matt-spray paint them, but I imagine for that I'd need to remove the chrome coating (I think it might just be a plastic cover anyway) from all the stem parts etc, or find a primer that will stick to it.

Or try and find a better set of aftermarket mirrors that don't cost the earth :-). I'm also thinking about using the same finish on the grab handles (as they're a bit scratched and scuffed).

All opinions welcome, does anyone here have any advice to share.
