Plasti-Dipping Mirrors

I was thinking about plasti-dipping my mirrors, but I want a glossy look instead of the matte finish. Would the clear plasti dip on top work well? I basically want my mirriors to look like they're painted plack. Any ideas?

I'd say just get a sheet of black glossy vinyl and wrap them. It might be a little tricky with how much curve there is, but with patience and a heat gun it would probably give you the end result and look you want.

Plasti dip makes gloss coats also. I've used it. 2 or 3 coats should have it pretty shiney.

look at dipyourcar.com and see all the variations and colors they have. I'd probably go with matte + clear as someone stated above

I know it's a pretty durable product, but how's it held up so far?
