The initial design wasn't too bad time wise. My first piece didn't fit up quite right, but my 2nd piece worked out quite well. If you worked with me I think we could do it all without shipping any stuff to me. You'd just need to measure a bunch of stuff up, and take a bunch of pictures for me. PM me if you're interested. I'd be interested in making some for other cars.

I'll probably make one for my Prius too.

Sheepdog, you might want to wait on that mirror delete a bit! Take a look at my pod side mirrors, which to me are a better alternative than an actual delete.

This just reminded me that I need to get Daox the dimensions of my pod mirrors. I think I want to tweak the design of them a little and replace the ones I have on the car with 3D printed (and lighter) ones. And if they're do-able on my Insight, they'll work on ALL G1's.

My pod mirrors are awesome, but kind of heavy and crudely made, and not as functional as I'd like. I want Daox to mod the design a little and print me a pair that I can retrofit the type of mirrors I have in these.

Here's a link to the mirrors the guy mated to the OEM mirror base (actual size is 4.3 / 2 / 1.2 inches):

Daox, I'll see if I can get the dimensions to you tonite!

I suppose if you give him the dimensions then i don't have to. Not much to change from small mirror to flat plate. I would be interested in both. The flat plate would be good for eventual camera mirrors.
