    chopper mirror install

    i think ill try this out. itll be bolt on and ill get pics as i do this.

    just got the mirror fillers from suicide doors so ill see how they sand and paint.

    im gonna bolt them in and use decorative bolts for the stock mounting points.

    worked on em sunday a little bit. couldnt find the mounting bolts at my hardware store so ill need to order those ones from bolt depot. i still need to order the actual mirrors too. until then heres an update.

    got the factory mirror removed.


    got the mirror filler c clamped into place
    (these fit perfect too by the way)
    excellent product from suicide doors
    ]

    then with a pencil i marked the factory screw hole locations


    then i removed it and drilled the holes.

    it was a bitch to find those bolts. after 4 stores i found a bolt shop. didnt know they existed. even bolt on seems to be hard. :)
    but ill get the fillers mounted with bolts tonight.

    and for now until i actually buy my chopper mirrors heres what passenger side looks like.


    and another shot from a distance.



    i dont think it looks all that bad. i could have gotten the black bolts too but i felt the shiny bolts, wheels, mirrors, grille, and soon to be wipers will all look good together.

    what yall think?

    looks clean, but i vote for black bolts i think...

    i dunno...it depends one what your mirrors look like i guess...are they going to be chrome as well?

    i just dont know if thats a place id expect/like to see chrome...bolt heads..

    looks clean though, im not hating at all.
