Shortly after finishing my Door Hanger Project, I found myself in need of some temporary mirrors. Never being a fan of the type that mount in the door hinge and wanting something small and easy to mount had me searching for something outside the box. I stumbled across these nifty looking Amazon Motorcycle Mirrors which started the wheels turning:

I wasn't sure how I was going to mount them, but that didn't stop me from clicking the "Ship It" button. A few days later, they came in the mail:

My initial reaction was, wow, fully machined metal mirror with a really nice finish! Now I just have to figure out how to mount them. I started with stripping off the unnecessary hardware:

Removed a cowl bolt, added some tape and decided that I liked the location:

I modified the mounting end by cutting the pilot off the post, filed it smooth, tapped the existing hole, cut the head off a spare bolt and installed the stud with some Red Loctite:

Now the post can be turned in until it bottoms on the "A" pillar counterbore:

I really like how this project turned out! Inexpensive, Sleek Looking and Easy to Install.
