S2 resurrection after 25 years in storage

Sorry what do you mean?

Satin unless the body colour is the same - I.e. black? 

Thanks

Peter suggests it OK to paint the mirrors and scoops in gloss black in the event you choose to paint the body in that overall, I'd say. I'd agree insofar as there is no reason to draw undue attention to those tack-on pieces by way of contrasting finish.

That's it. If you want a gloss finish on the mirrors paint them the same colour as the body. If you want them black make them satin, unless you are painting the whole car black in which case the satin vs gloss contrast might be a bit odd. That's what I think anyway.

Speaking of mirrors. Any tips on how to disassemble the unit? Does the mirror simply pop off? I’ve applied a fair amount of pressure - feels like the mirror will break.

Remove the mirror from its plastic surround. Tricky not to break use a razor or thin handled blade, it’s held on with tape, behind the mirror are holes t9 get a screwdriver in and unscrew the mechanism.
