Default Get Chrome mirrors ready for powder coat?

I found a local powder coating guy and want to start blacking out everything on my vegas 8-ball. I wanted to take the mirrors and headlight to him. But how do I remove the mirror glass out of the housing? Anyone run into this?
Thanks

I would think there glued in. Heat might loosen the glues.
Isn't there like a rubber trim around the mirror? That might be your real problem.
You could look for a shop that would cut you mirror glass if you break it. Blue colored would be cool for mirror color.
Or look on ebay for black mirrors. Think that would be the best way to go.

Yeah that sounds like more work than its worth, trying to get those outta there. I am wanting to either powder coat the entire round headlight, or just the body and leave the ring chrome, and get a visor for it.
