Ok here's pics that everyone wants to see. On the driverside mirror the paint started to crack from too much paint and sitting under the weather six months. But they actually turned out pretty good

It was on the car when I bought it. But a quick google search turns up a ton of places to buy them. Just remember.. You get what you pay for. So remember that if you go cheap.

If I were you I would just sand down the ones you have an apply a cheap paint and clear. It'll peel but it's cheap enough to where doing it once a year isn't that bad.

I'm not sure. My dad is district manager for LA&MS for PPG so I get color-matches and paint for free for whatever I want... Never had to go look for it. :/

My dad is going to pick some up next week. He's gonna write it off so it's free. He can get you a pint of D6. But it won't be a spray can. It's actual paint.
