Easy Mirror Delete Mod

Hello everyone, first post here. Just purchased new interior side mirrors so i could take off the outside mirrors. These mirrors were easy to install and can easily be adjusted. The 3M adhesive to retain the interior mirrors is ok. Not sure if it would hold on hot days, I may screw it into the plastic.

I got the from Autozone for $5.99 each. They are Pilot Automotive brand. I'll upload a pic of the package it came in later today if you would like to see more details of the mirrors.

Great job! I like the adjustable part. I do think they will have to be screwed in, but it's worth it for the benefit.

Ibid. A picture of the package is very helpful. The closest I have seen to those are the "blind spot" mirrors with suction cups that ALWAYS FALL OFF THE WINDOW!

Yup cfg83, they fell off this morning. The plastic on my door where i put the mirror is not flat, kinda has a slope so the adhesive didn't completely stick on. So I'm going to screw a hole into the mirrors base and the plastic on my door so i can use zip ties along with the adhesive for support.

Thanks for the welcome. I believe the part number is MI-141, its on the top right corner of the package.
