Easy and Legal Mirror Relocation

I'd been wanting to take my doors off for a month or two now-my lack of finances was the only thing holding me back from getting a mirror relocation bracket. In my state, only the left side mirror is required, so that's all I did, but this works for both sides. Once you remove your doors, you'll need to take the lower hinge off with a torx bit and remove it. When you do that, the door-strap holder will also fall off, and there will also be a small piece of steel (maybe, 2"x1"?). You can store your torx bits somewhere safe. Now, you'll need two fairly long 1/4" bolts (at least long enough to go through the holes in your mirror, the panel where the door hinge is, the steel piece, the washer, and the nut), two 1/4" fender washers, and two 1/4" nuts. The reason you need the washer is because the steel piece has holes that are 5/16", not 1/4". Hold the mirror up to the holes in the hinge, and the two bolts go right through the hinge holes. Put the piece of steel up, and put the washer over the bolt and up against the steel, then screw the nut on, and you're done! Adjust your mirror and you're legal and doorless.

And another view!

Sorry that there were no "before" pictures, only after ones. I didn't really plan on posting this but it worked out well enough that I figured a couple people would appreciate it.
