I believe 69s had a chromed base. 70s have a painted base.

Just a tip after reading through these posts, whenever you want to drill through a painted panel obviously cover it with tape and use a new bit but first spin the bit backwards and it will "shave" its way through the paint without chipping. Once you reach metal then drill in the correct direction to complete the hole.

So for XR7 trim on the top of the door...with the passenger side Sport mirror install, is there a shortened trim piece available for the XR7 passenger door?

No the mirror mounts below the trim, very unlike the DS.
