I painted my 62 mirrors on the 60. Used the same Rustolem Hard Hat paint as I have used on wheels. Just lighty scuffed em up.

I have had real good luck painting over chome trim with SEM Trim Black, but it's kinda spendy and the Rustolem seems to have worked well.

Oven cleaner will probably take the chrome completely off the mirros if that is what you desire. I just ran mine chrome when I had my 60. But I had chrome steel wheels so it sort of matched. Also your rain gutter chrome is easily removed if you decide you want to get rid of all the chorme. It is just a plastic trim piece held on with a few clips. I did ditch the roof trim on mine.
