Soul Help (Side mirror)

I was finally convinced to start modding my car by weatherspotter... anyways after a long warm up we tried a side mirror fold in.





Nothing much to see here so we tried deleting the mirror.





Note: the tape we used to cover the mirror hole flew off almost at the beginning of the test run making a crap ton of air noise, so I am not sure if any of the data will mean anything... Weatherspotter fabricated a true cover and we are waiting for another good testing day to try it out.

Some pic's of how we did the mod:


Inside cover off and one bolt out (see the mirror power is unplugged):


Mirror off, front view:


Side view:


with tape on for ABA testing (came off on first run):


Mirror on work bench as cover is being fabricated (note the ridges on the top):


With tape on inside before cover:


Test run of cover (colorplast):


Bolted on:


Painted and on (just waiting for the 45+ MPH winds to die down for testing):
