Ron,
Car looks great. I would recommend (if you didn't already do it) to have your mirror covers UV cleared. I bought a replacement set from Elvin (he didn't do the originals) because over time I had de-lamination and warpage. After communicating with him I had the set he sent me UV cleared as he indicated that "it wouldn't hurt". I also had them PPF'd in UV film. The other ones were to but it didn't prevent my issue. You may not have the same experience as me as I know your car is garaged and is not your daily but, you know what they say, "an ounce of prevention..."

Thanks Wes! I planned on spraying them before installation but the temp still isn't ideal for spraying anything in the garage and I just couldn't wait and installed them. I do plan on having them PPF'd and I may still end up clear coating them before that! I just don't want to take them off again so It will suck masking the whole car! Thanks for the input! Sorry that you experienced what you did with your parts, have you done anything new?

NP! Nothing really new. The Supra is currently under the knife for some updates and clean-up. Can you point me in the direction of a how to video or some tips on removing the mirror covers? I had someone else do it the first time and don't recall the process.

I see...I still wish I kept my MK3!
There isn't a video that I know of but Pheen619 did a write up on it. It's freaking scary trying to pop the mirrors off, they are on there pretty good.
