Go to the hardware store and get some long stainles steel oval head machine screws that fit in the mirror holes and some wing nuts. Slightly enlarge the mirror mount holes in your door so the screws slide in. Remove the inner door panel, then with the window rolled to the right level you should be able to hold the wing nuts inside the door and tighten down the screws at the mirror. This is what I did, worked great.
you may want to loctite the screws if possible.. this will prevent the nuts from coming loose due to vibration. If you don't want to use loctite, try to find some locking wingnuts (they'll have some nylon next to the threads that prevents the nut from rattling loose.. they're sometimes called "nylock nuts")

Starting to lean towards putting re-balancing money (100-150$) towards a new driveshaft while pursuing other avenues of the vibrations. I've found that...
This is probably a dumb question... So I just realized the two middle headlights in my 69 coupe is not working. Are those two considered the high beam lights?
Is there a specific way to turn it on? As far as I know, there are two stages when I pull the light switch and that's it. Even...
Hi all! I didn't want to hijack the other thread I was looking in so I thought I'd start a new one. As others in that thread stated they are getting at least 20 mpg, but after some calculating I did when I filled up on Monday I found out I'm getting about 11. I don't have a lead foot, but will...
