Can you take the coloured backing off the wing mirrors?


I've got a spare electric wing mirror for my dark red Rover 25, as the current one is at the moment held on (quite well) with duct tape due to a collision. Anyway the problem is that the new wing mirror is dark green and most people are not colourblind. So I was planning to try and swap the backing with the existing mirror.

Has anybody successfully removed the coloured back off a wing mirror, and is there a particular knack to it? Would be good to know before I go off and ruin a perfectly good mirror!

The coloured caps on these mirrors are removable as they are designed to be changed. You can buy new caps from XPart or dealers etc.

Insatructions on how to remove have been posted on here already. A search for removal mirror backings or caps should find you it. The same mirror is used on 25's, 45's and from 2002) 75's
