I found that they slipped a bit at first, probably because I was afraid to really crank on the tightening nuts. I bought some 5/16" star washers for $.47 and put them in the bracket, and now they stay put 100%.

Caniswalensis Thanks! :-) I Got'em on the 'bay.

This dealer was very reliable and shipped my stuff pretty quickly.
11001.08 CJ Style Mirror Kit for JEEP Wrangler TJ 97-06 | eBay

What do you think I should do about the old mounting holes in the hinge? Are there any good tricks for that? It seems like asking for rust to leave them open, and of course it doesn't look very good.

Regards, Canis

A nice easy Sunday project...

Ok, So my sideview mirrors had seen better days. I was never really happy with the look of the TJ side views anyway, and now they were drooping and loosing paint fast. Plus, whenever I take my doors off, I loose my sideviews. Not good.

I ordered some basic utilitarian mirrors and they were delivered last week. I like these new mirrors a lot. They just look more "Jeep" to my eye, and they mount on the windshield hinge.

Here are some before snaps:


Here are some after snaps:






Now, What should I do about these holes?




Anyone need some old fixer-upper mirrors?


regards, Canis
