Lose the Chrome mirror caps?

In the quest to personalize my 2014 LTZ, I am considering body colored mirror caps over the chrome ones that come standard on the LTZ.

I have three questions.

1. How does the mirror cap come off?

2. Can I resurface and repaint the chrome one on the car?

3. Has anyone in the group had any experience removing and re-installing the mirror caps on the 9th Gen Impala that can offer advice?

I think that is an excellent idea. The chrome side strips on the LTZ look great but the chrome mirror caps are just too much.

Thanks, guess I am not the only one who thinks the chrome mirror caps look gaudy!

Mine is a 1LT so no chrome mirror caps, but I will beg to differ on the chrome. I wadded through the 90's- mid 2000's to see the bright work to come back!
