Driver Side Mirror Glass?

Post by B^2 » 31 Jul 2014 05:25

So I need just the glass for the driver side mirror and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for where to source it? The assembly/unit is fine so I'm hesitant to buy a whole new setup. Even if it's something cheap, I just need it to pass inspection. David recommended finding an auto glass shop that could cut something so that's my next try.

Doesn't have to be an auto glass shop. Any glass shop that sells custom mirrors, etc. should be able to do it. Just take the mirror assembly with you.

While you are there, have them cut a few extras and then you can sell them to others in need.

That's the problem with living near a big city. Everyone needs to make $200 an hour. A friend of mine had one done for $20 last year.

I guess you need to find a replacement.

I had a local place make some up for 15/piece. They weren't perfect - but they worked
Finished is better than perfect......
