Remote Racing Style Mirrors

Recommended Posts

The previous owner of my 1973 coupe installed remote racing style side mirrors.  The driver side glass fell out and shattered and the passenger side mirror glass is loose.  I have two new mirrors, however, the way the previous owner installed the driver side mirror is to just cut the cables.  If possible, I would like to install the knob in the door panel to make the mirror functional.  Any thoughts?  Is it as simple as cutting a hole in the standard door panel?   Thanks in advance.

Yes.  There should be a keyed backing washer with a tab that fits over the joystick end of the cable.  It's purpose is to keep the end from moving around while you adjust the mirror.  The assembly is joystick through door, then washer, then door panel, then chrome bezel.
