5. Mount new side mirrors to body.
I wanted mirrors for when I take the doors off.
I did not want to mount them on windshield hinge for a couple of reasons.
1. They will not fold around incase they get hit with something because the mirror arm hits the windshield frame
2. It will not work with my snorkle.
3. So I used one of the old factory locations to mount my mirrors.

I made a backing plate for the inside
I also used a thin nylon reinforced rubber for gaskets... so there is not metal to metal contact.... hopefully it will save the paint.
