Hi all. I was able to pick up a pair of Transforged V2 mirror stalks from the board (really psyched as they were the ones I really wanted). I just ordered mirrors from Moto Works. I'm planning on painting them Polar Blue to match the car and leave the stalks gloss black. I've never painted carbon fiber before so is there anything special I'll need to do? I'm guessing not but what the hell, might as well ask now than find out later.

Thanks in advance,
Glam

If it has print thru ie texture use high build primer multiple coats then sand and finish as you normally would. If doing a color match Automotive Touch Up will color match and sells a kit with primer, base color and clearcoat.
