Default Thinking about getting my side mirrors and spoiler painted

How much would it cost me to get my current torch red side mirrors and rear spoiler painted in carbon flash paint ? I am in Dallas area. All help is appreciated

I think the price will vary widely depending on how they approach it. If they remove the mirrors and spoiler (the proper way to do it, IMO), the cost will be much more than if they mask and paint them on the car. I'd guess about $500 (WAG) to paint, plus several hours of labor to tear doors and rear-end apart and then re-install.

The experts will arrive shortly, but I'd say under $1K. Most of it is labor not paint supplies per se.

I'm somewhere between the two posts above....some body shops will quote the labor high, some will be fair...
