Talbot Mirror Installation - Checking the U-Bolt


The mirror is now removed and we can check how it should be mounted. Not good news. First, since the mirror could not be removed, when the door was painted with clear coat last year, the mirror stayed on the car allowing a ridge of paint to build up. This will have to be removed. The second problem is the U-shaped mounting bolt for the new mirror is too narrow for the holes. One solution might be to drill a new hole. However, the U-bolt will still not work because back side of the door in that area is probably too close to the front surface to feed it through. Do not get the U-bold mounting for an early 900 series car.
