OK, I tried to resist. The cf rear view mirror covers look real good. Do you have a link for them? I already looked at CJ and there were a bunch of options. I have an electronics package
Thanks Tom! Yes, they do look great and they were cheap! An install tip... I put the adhesion promoter on the covers only (not on my mirrors). I put the included tape all over my mirrors, focusing on the edges of the cover. The big key then was to use the “wet method” for putting the covers on. I tried doing it dry and the tape starts to grab instantly preventing the cover being slid into proper position. I sprayed the inside of the covers down with detail spray... worked like a champ!

I got these covers:

I also order these at the same time... they are fantastic!

I think I bought that from JLT direct. I got it about a month before I got the car.

Agree they look awesome. Somebody recently opined that CF is the new chrome. Never been much into chrome, but agree with the description, even if it's a bit humbling.

These really look great. I'm going to pickup a set myself. I noticed there is one with and without turn signals. Do the 2020 Shelbys have turn signals in the mirrors? I was about to pull the trigger on the non-turn signal version until I saw this thread.

How about a pic from the other side, like you were looking at the rearview mirror?

I see double back tape is used to install, how do you avoid a gap where the cover ends?

The first pic is from when I installed them. The second one is from today, racing my friend’s built motor 2013 Super Snake. The car is not at my house right now to take any pics.

I went to a car show with the car today and parked next to another 2020 GT500. He spent something like $600 for a set of CF mirror caps... the kind that you remove and replace your caps/covers. He looked at mine and was a little disgusted... he said mine looked just as good. He wished he knew about this cheap option.
