Door Mirror Cover
#1
My wife managed to scuff the nearside door mirror painted cover while manoeuvring in the local multi-storey car park. To be fair, the place was clearly designed by a midget in a sinclair c5 - terrible place. Went to my local friendly paint spray shop who I've used before and he said he'd re-spray it for £30 compared to the local citroen dealer who quoted £16 for the cover and £75 to spay it! The guy at the paint shop had a bit of trouble removing the cover but eventually unclipped it using all of his plastic clip tools (probably didn't help with me watching him).

While the cover is off, I thought I'd post a photo to show where the clip slots are in case anyone finds this useful.

I don't have colour coded mirrors, I guess if I buy some covers I can snap the clips off and glue it over the mirror?
