Velvac Mirror Restoration Advice

My 2005 Discovery looks pretty good for an 11 year old coach. The biggest cosmetic blemish is the condition of the velvac mirrors. The chrome is peeling off an looks pretty bad.

I have a couple of options.
-I could sand down and paint body color. I think it would look pretty good.

-I could take to a chrome shop (I don't thing that would be DIY). Anyone have experience with that? Any other options or ideas?

I would sand and paint. I think if you can find one the chrome shop idea would cost way to much.

Mine are pretty much peeling all over. They need a total refinish, but I know a new set are fairly expensive.
