Blinded by Sun reflection from Leaper

Post by 01286p » Mon Jun 29, 2020 11:34 am

Whilst driving North on the M6 last week I was continuously blinded by a reflection of the Sun shining onto/from the Chrome Leaper into my rearview mirror as soon as the spoiler rose.
The only way I could stop being blinded was by adjusting the rearview mirror such that I could not see out it, but then, of course, I could not see directly behind me.
I had thought of removing the Jaguar lettering and Leaper. Is that easy and will it leave holes in the bodywork?
Or does anyone have any practical suggestions to overcome the problem?

The Rolling Stones had the answer - Paint It Black! ;)
There's a thread on here about replacing the chrome with black, too.
I have to admit it's not a problem I have as my fixed spoiler sits nicely above the leaper.
