    what if you just got a threaded bar and cut to desired lengths and then welded them in place, viola instantly smooth outside, but it still bolts up?

    that how i did mine, tack welded some machine screw to the back and just drilled out the back of the stock holes so the bolts slid through and if need be i could bolt up the old stock mirrors and just hit the inside of the door with a bit of sealent

    yeah i dont weld or know someone i trust to weld either. then i noticed it would look a little more tough with the bolts showing. i did use a nice looking bolt instead of just one lying around.

    "or just buy black bolts...

    or would it stay up if u didnt use as many bolts?"

    and to this i just used what would look symmetrical and using the stock holes where the previous mirror was.

    That's what I was about to say. Go with gloss black bolts and gloss black the fillers so it looks like part of the window.

    Or go to your local machine shop or welding shop...hell even a muffler shop and have them weld some all thread in those spots...wouldnt take more than like 2 or 3 tacks on each bolt.

    just counter sink the holes and use like a low profile screw as bolts, then it will look smooth from far away and you wont have to weld

    Counter sinking works great when you're woodworking... but not so hot when you've got a 1/4" or 3/16" thick piece of sheetmetal. At least from my experience...
