    Thumbs up Mirror Adaptor Mod

    After reading Evilutions website, and seeing his how-to on fitting a shortened rear-view Mirror, I decided to order an adaptor from Germany.

    Dieter, who makes these is great, and sent me an email pretty much straight away telling me that he would post it on the following Monday. On arrival, in a well packaged box, containing the 2 machined parts, a long Screw and some instructions.

    As the instructions describe, it took me longer to assemble all the tools than it did to fit it !! I did give the machined parts a quick polish before fitting with Meg's metal Polysh (sic), just because I am like that .. although I masked off the ball, so it didnt get too slippy for the mirror to hold.

    Anyway, if you have the mirror, always in your way like I did, this is the mod for you ...

    Cool

    Looks good, can you revert back to original fitting?

    It's a straight swap so can be reversed, view is slightly more impeeded than before because of the upper brake light section but nothing terrible.

    I can confirm that the rear view is far better on my cabrio .. Roof down, the mirror sits right between the folded roof and the roll-bar ...

    Top modification, but probably only if you are 6ft or taller ...

    What length (size) adapter for the interior mirror did you buy from Dieter? I have a 450 Brabus Cabrio & as I'm over 6ft I'd rather see out the front of the car than the rear! Cheers T.

    Are you aware that the post you're replying to is over seven years old?
