DIY paint job on sideview mirror?

ok.. tired of looking at this scrape on one of my side view mirrors.. its pretty much filled in with touch up paint.. and its just plastic.

So.. thinking.. mask the surrounding area..sand off that crappy touch up paint and take a few sprays?

colorworks quoted me over $200 to do this.. insanity! i'm sure a body shop can do it for significantly cheaper... a part of me is saying 'why bother?' but i'm a bit of a perfectionist. most probably wont see it.. ..but me.. knowing its there.. is enough to bug the crap out of me.

whatcha think? if there is someone out there that wants to do this for $100cash.. i'll pay!

whoever did the touch up job sucked ass. i bet a 2yr old kid could stay within the lines instead of putting a giant blop on it.

Sometimes we tend to be in despair when the person we love leaves us, but the truth is, it's not our loss, but theirs, for they left the only person who couldn't give up on them.

Make the effort and take the risk..
