Been there and done that! Came out good for me in my opinion but I will say overspray is an issue. if you are masking up you need to mask up the whole side. the handles are easy to get away with because it is basically a flat side. as for the mirrors, tape up the whole hood and front windshield and half of the car maybe more. overspray becomes a big issue. I didn't mask it all up and spent hours with a microfiber towel removing little black spots off. If you can remove mirrors i recommend that but overall I loved the way it came out for me. Good Luck!
