I had to reinstall my stock mirrors in order to get an inspection sticker...

But, the video mirrors are back on. They work better in every situation except bright sunshine: low light and in the rain, the video mirrors are far superior to the optical ones, and the field of view of the video mirrors is much better. I am leaving the small optical mirror on for the bright sunny days -- I get the best of both this way.

The other issue I had with the inspection was the age of my license plate: it is ~32 years old (it is the ONLY plate I have ever had on a car!), and has some cracking and is not as readable as it could be. I've seen far worse, though. If I take the state up on the offer to replace it with new plates with the same number -- I'll have to have a plate on the front of the car...which I don't like for aerodynamic reasons.
Sincerely, Neil
