Printable Mirrors

Anyone know where to find paintable mirrors? I have body color door handles and I figured might as well get those done too haha. Thanks for any info.

Question

Why wouldn't most any of the mirrors have the possibility to be painted...provided the proper prep is done ?

Haha printable mirrors would work too. And I thought that about the door handles too but since they're textured i didn't know how much work it would take to prep them. I asked a friend that does body work and he saod they wouldn't hold up as well as just buying smooth handles, which I ended up doing.

Had my truck including door handles and mirrors painted a couple years ago, no problems.

Like the others have said prep is the key to it. Wash the good in dawn detergent , dry them off and wipe down a couple times with some wax/grease remover(prepsol). Then scuff with a brown or gray scuff pad( don't use sandpaper as it marks the plastic up to bad) wipe down again and spray them 1st with an adhesion promoter, i use one called bullydog. Then primer , paint and clear.
