Dual Mirrors

#1

Post by Comp Elimn8r » 07 Jun 2017, 05:10

Guys,Am I right in believing my Eliminator is supposed to have dual mirrors if the BT RAC is correct on the buck tag?
Also the drivers door has the markings already there but the passenger door is blank, except for the two holes.
I'm wondering if the passenger door is correct or was that mirror non remote with no need for the cut out?
Cheers

The passenger door should have a platform similar to the drivers door for the mirror to sit on.

Sorry no raised or special area on 69/70 pass doors.

Some ECats did not get Pass door mirrors if they were special order colors.

No that is incorrect. Here is how the PS mirror mounts.

No difference... Keep in mind this was a 1970 Torino mirror that was somewhat of an after-thought. It was not designed for the Cougar specifically but "it works".
