I was referring to auto-Fold OEM M3 mirrors. Is it something that a person who has never wrapped anything could take on?

I wouldn't try mirrors as a first timer, from a general point of view. I've definitely seen it done by a first timer, but it's not an easy task.

No I have not. It's not common to see cabs with hardtops, especially in socal.

That's honestly up to the body/paint shop to match the vinyl. Flat/matte paint jobs (correct/good ones) are not easy to do already, so I am not sure how they'll match it.

I'll try to get some more pictures posted up this week. Been busy preparing cars for SEMA for the past 1-2 weeks, and finally able to catch up on other things now.
