Side Mirror Removal

Just wondering if anyone has removed the Side mirrors on thier Camaro ...I am guessing I have to take the inner Door Panal off to get at the Bolts...

I am taking my car out to Huntington Beach and Chip Foose, Mitch Lanzini are going to repaint/Foose it out ....

Should look awesome after Chip Foose has had his hands on it, can't wait to see the outcome. I have to ask though, why are you removing the mirrors? Won't those get painted along with the rest of the car or are you doing something different as far as the mirrors go?

My car is Inferno Orange right now but we are adding Black with it ....If you look at your Mirror`s it pretty hard to get the Spray gun in behind the mirror and Side window in order to get Paint on all sides ...So to get the best Results its best to pull the Mirror`s off and paint Seperatly ....

I met up with my Buddy Chip back in December up in North Dakota and we pulled in a Inferno Orange Camaro and threw down some Tape....So I have a real good idea what his plans are ...But you will just have to see the outcome when I get back and post picture`s...I am pretty sure mine will be one of a kind..

Here is a picture of Chip Laying down some tape getting Ideas

Just saw you drive a 69 Firebird... you got pics of that while we wait?

That's kinda THE car for me . As a kid, I'd dreamt about owning one. (Now I do, only better)

you'd always have to remove any mirrors, emblems, etc when painting a car if you want it done right. otherwise you'd get paint on the rubber gasket which would look like crap.
