Electric Mirrors Upgrade - Part 3

A bit of fresh air was needed today, so I used some fine cutting compound, followed by Autoglym SRP and finally some wax. Three coats of each left me with this

Then I cleaned the mirror glass and applied some Rainex. I also cleaned the plastic glass surround with some trim detailer

And finally I re-assembled the mirror

The windscreen pillars need a small amount of modifying. I drilled out the fixing holes to enlarge the diameter of them. This allows the mirror to be rotated slightly to make it more vertical as without this it points a little bit too much skywards. You will also see an additional hole that I have drilled to feed the cables through

Love it! I always find I've knocked the mirrors right after I've strapped myself in - I guess this solves that problem...

Thanks R7 - yes that is exactly the reason for doing it - my car is fairly tight to get round in the garage, and I also find myself unstrapping and adjusting mirrors on a regular basis.

 

Once the electric mirrors are set, I am hoping they will stay in position!
