GD427 in action

Sunday, 8 July 2012


The side mirrors screw into some holes I drilled and tapped into the windscreen support frame. These come fitted with mounts to fit onto doors which need replacing with the arms supplied by GD. It's simply a case of removing the plastic clip which holds the glass in, undoing the screw which holds the mirror onto the mount, swapping for the GD one and putting it all back together.

I also fitted the rear view mirror which clamps onto the windscreen centre stay. The stay is designed to hold the top of the windscreen frame down when a soft top is fitted which at speed, pulls up on the top of the frame. Unfortunately, whilst it will no doubt do it's job, it's not tensioned at rest and allows the mirror to wobble a bit. I'll have to sort something for the IVA test as I understand a "wobbly" mirror is a fail.

Sorry, just realised how pointless this last picture was, it was meant to show all the mirrors mounted but if you look closely, you can just make out the rear view mirror fitted at the top of the screen. I'll sort out a better picture next time.
