Default Sideview Mirror Color 91 Volvo 240

Doing some body work on my 91 245 I have the badly faded side view mirrors off. I would like to paint them, however I was wondering what would be more stock. Should I paint them matte black or grey like the bottom trim.

Thanks!

Sem trim black makes them look stock-ish.

I've heard (but have not tried) that you can use a heat gun or a hair dryer to very slowly and carefully bring back the color to the housings.

Just use SEM 39103 Bumper Coater on them. It is a dead on match to what the mirrors looked like new. The trim black is slightly darker and shines more than the original finish.
