Mirror painting project

I had my local paint shop make a spray can to match the skirt paint. They crosswalked it to a Honda color.Click image for larger version

Looks Nice! Did they clear coat it as well? It would be great if it now made it bug proof too!

Actually this was 100% DIY.. a can of universal bonding primer from Lowes and the paint they mixed for me. I did sand off most of the old black paint to get to the bottom of the scratches. I should have asked about doing clear on top, but I didn't. The paint seems to be different than your normal spray can (it was $20.00 after all) with very high gloss finish that has some depth to it. I did three coats, will just have to see how it holds up. Worst case I do it again in a few years. If so I will take the mirrors off, too much to masking required.
