Sidemount mirrors 1608 1938

Post by Bluedevil » Mon Dec 03, 2018 12:51 pm

Ok, how do you dismantle the sidemount mirrors? I need to have them replated. I learned the hard way on the cormorant hood ornament, where you have to remove the anal plug, pull the internal pin and pull the wings off, not exactly a straight forward disassembly.

I see a hole in the mirror, but what do you do with it?

Thanks in advance.

If factory accessory mirrors held to the metal sidemount tread face cover, Just grasp the mirror face and unscrew (counterclockwise) to remove it and go from there, it should be quite apparent at that point.

David,

That worked, thanks. After having the bolt sheared off on my Cormorant wings buy the plater, I am leery of forcing things.
