You park on a narrow street only to return and find your wing mirror hanging off! It happens….narrow country lanes also seem to be a culprit for poorly wing mirrors. Using specialist techniques wing mirrors can be re-attached and repaired. Dont resort to parcel tape! Give Smarter Cars a call.
In this repair the wing mirror casing was fine, but the plastic by the window was flaking away. The plastic was rubbed down, primed and sprayed black using specialist paints designed for plastic.
A wing mirror reconstruction example of a repair. This is a typical hit and run drive by on those pesky wing mirrors sticking out. It can be pretty devastating not only to you, but the wing mirror too. However, using special techniques the mirror can be reconstructed again. Minimal filler is needed and any small bits that may be missing can be filled in with actual plastic.
The mirror is then primed and rubbed down a number of times to create a smooth silky surface.
Finally the colour is applied and a nice thick coat of lacquer is put on top. The final look is perfect, nobody will ever know the extent of the damage and it only cost you a fraction of the price to buy a new one.
