This is all the parts and tools you will need for one side
Hand Release Mirror Parts
NOTE:: I got the mirrors at Advanced Auto ($10 each) the rest I got at Home Depot for about $15 so both mirrors for about $35
Putting it all together
- Stainless Steel Eyebolt with Nut 3/8" X 6" - This was hanging on the wall
- Wing Nut 3/8" - 16 thread - Stainless Steal - This was hanging up close to the eyebolt nut
- Bonded Sealing Washer 3/8" Galvanized - 2 per each mirror - Located in the boxes - It is sort of warped like a cone - one side is rubber the other is metal.
- Spacer Nylon 3/8" X 1" - 2 per each mirror, so 4 if your making 2 - Located in the boxes labeled spacers
- 3/8" Flat Washer - Should be just a bit smaller than 1" in diameter - 2 per each mirror
- Put a flat washer on the eyebolt nut
- Put 2 of the nylon spacers on
- Put another flat washer on
- Put the stainless steal nut that comes with the eyebolt on just hand tight
- Put the mirror harness around the spacers. You can remove the black plastic liner. Make sure you have it pointing the right way for the side your putting it on.
- Alternate tighting the 2 nuts you just put on until it isn't going to move at all- It takes a 12mm and 14mm wrench
- Put on one of the Bonded Sealing Washers with the rubber pointing down.
- Put the assembly onto the hinge
- Put another Bonded Sealing Washer on there with the rubber side faceing up.
- Put on the wing nut and tighten it down as well as you can with your hands.
- Adjust the mirror
HOPEFULLY THIS WON'T VIBRATE LIKE CRAZY
I tried a mod before this one that used a foot of 3/8" threaded bar sort of bent in the middle. It really didn't work all that great because of all the vibration at speed. I think this one will work much better being posted so tightly to the hinge.
Thanks to HighRoad for the inspiration
I did quite a bit of tweaking to your design. Like they say good artist borrow, great artist steal.
