Did you make any progress?

I live in MA and my mirrors look worse than yours. I am planning on taking them all apart - sandblasting / sanding the cast oxidation and then etch primer followed by bedliner. It will be a few weeks but I will post pics when I do it.

You could blast them, or really even just hit it with some 400 grit sand paper til it quit flaking off. Rattle can work work fine on these. Just use some adhesion promoter, especially on the plastic part, before shooting. If you want it to last longer, you may want to shoot some decent primer on first and put some good paint on it. I figued most guys wheel their stuff, and the mirrors will get scuffed up again and need done every year either way. So rattle can may be the way to go.
