So shiney!! While the car is down waiting on head work, ive been getting some bling prepped for install.
Just got this back from the chromer. Cost me a bit for the chrome but it will be worth it in the end.

Marco,
If you didn't already know, Original Parts Group (Chevelle catalog) has reproduction plastic parts for the mirror head.

Does anyone have templates for mounting the remote mirror? I'm replacing a manual mirror.

Hey Scott,
Which year mirror do you have? The early 66 controller mounting holes are slightly offset from center. 64-5 controller mounting holes are centered.

If this is part of a build thread,why is the mirror on eBay?
Kinda confusing.

Hmm, is this the mirror I have seen advertised for $1,000? Is the Ebay a repop and the original is worth so much more?

This mirror hasn't been repoped, and the most difficult part to find is the cables that operate the mirror head. The second most difficult part to find is the mirror head, because once the plastic spider that operates the mirror head breaks, the mirror head rolls down the highway, never to be found. Mine broke off, and I spent hours looking on the side of the road till I found it.
