  • flat black 355 mirrors

    I just painted my mirrors flat black so I could drive it home. I think it looks pretty good but I am still going to paint them yellow.
    Now I will get some work done on this thing.!!!



    Cheers

    Its not the flat black that looks good,its the fact that the mirrors are mounted on the car that makes you happy

        No they came with the kit, it only took 2.5 years to get them. I didn't really need them until now anyway.
        I got them from the same place Ari got his kit. Tony.

          The are more than likely from the same initial builder (IFG) Bondo Bob made his mirrors from the mirrors on my Mirage kit. They initially came from IFG. Bob fixed the biggest flaws in the mirrors and has a nice product for only $199 per set.

            Dave,
            Remember at John's cookout how my IFG mirrors and Bobs mirrors were almost the same? What glass and mirror motor are you using in his mirrors? I am sure they would work in mine as well.

              Bob:

              An electric motor assembly from a Fiero, Firebird or Camero will work in the unit. You need to chop out the old glass mirror and trim away the plastic lip that surrounds the old mirror to retain the adjusting platform that the new custom cut mirror will bond to. I simply used JB Weld to hold the mirror to the plastic. As a matter of fact, that bond is on there so well, I had to locate another set of donor mirror guts. You can get any glass and mirror shop to cut some mirror stock to use in your application. They should cost about $5 each for the donor motor assembly and about $7 each for the new mirror and $3.49 for the JB Weld at Home Depot.
