Looks great the way it is. I would leave it. Then again, I got the bling-bling mirrors and front bumper!

If it ain't broke....
In my opinion unless the chrome is professionally removed it's going to be a mess (constant paint peeling issues).

A possible paint solution. My 40 had rusted chrome wheels which I sandblasted then primed with an etch auto primer then painted with standard auto paint. The rusult is the yellow wheels in pic.

My 62 still has the chrome mirrors and, trust me, there is no bling involved. Much more time and effort then needed

FWIW...the mirror skins are plastic chrome. Unless there are trashed ...I wouldn't :flipoff2: with it. My 02.
