SIDE MIRROR ASSEMBLY

Post by DrStover on Thu Oct 20, 2016 4:46 pm

I took my side mirrors apart in order to powder coat the pieces and now I'm having difficulty figuring out how to reassemble the top and bottom of the mirror and how they attach to the bar. can someone show me a picture

Do you have a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen and what style of mirror are they? Someone might have some pics if they know what you're looking for... Very Happy

Sorry... second gen. I can't upload a picture, but I think they are the original mirrors... with a bar that attaches above and below the window and a rectangular mirror that connects top and bottom to the bar.

Found this pic with a set of mirrors for sale...Let me know if this helps!



If these are not the same as yours, you can click on the Search tab at the top of the page and type in mirror and search on that. There's quite a few threads and some of them have links to different style west coast mirrors on ebay. Those links have pics of the different styles as well.

Hope this helps.

I have a pair of those mirrors hanging in my storage, not sure that the
parts in the pic go with those mirrors, but I can check when I get home
tonight and let you know for sure as they are still in one piece.
If Donivan sees this I'm sure he will chime in with a pic or two.

I am not seeing those as having come off West Coast mirrors, they could have been used as "backing" plates inside the door "because maybe" the screws fit. Bottom factory mount is 3 holes while top is 2 holes and those plates are not fitting at the top of the door PERIOD JM2C study

I think Space Truckin may be onto something there...backing plates to strengthen the mounts so that they don't tear a hole in the door would make sense...to me anyway.

More than likely a set up to allow the mirrors to be "knocked" back if hit or need to tuck them in.

Just checked the set I have in the barn. Both pieces go on the top of mirror
Between it and the upper mounting bracket, kind of act as a bearing so adjustment
is possible. Hope this helps
