Cool

Door panels and 935 styled mirrors arrived:









Mirrors will need some additional work to give them a nice quality finish. These attach to the door with bolts instead of just adhesive.

I went ahead and removed the stock Flag mirrors and marked where the two holes will need to be drilled for the new 935 styled mirrors.

Also started to work in the wing/tail... need to strip the old paint, repair a few areas and apply glue where the FB meets the metal. Then apply a nice coat of primer/sealer before shooting the paint.

Plenty to keep my afternoons busy...

Jaime - Please document the installation of the 935 mirrors. I may be doing that in the near future. Thanks!

Will do. A few initial comments. The finish on the delivered parts is typical FG racing stuff... not the best if you plan on using it for a show car. So be prepared to sand, apply putty, sand again, etc.

You can attach the mirrors several ways. I have read of people using the same adhesive used for installing door skins (pretty strong adhesive), special double face tape, and/or bolts.

I put a little bit of white paint on the screw sockets and presented the part to see where I would have to drill the holes. For the passenger side the holes line up in the middle of the window frame and in the middle of the door black strip, so no problems there.





On the driver's side it lines up nicely on the window frame but not so on the black door strip... in my case the hole would need to me drilled about 1/2inch into the side of the door from the black strip... I have a couple of options for dealing with this: (1) Drill it there (not something I am willing to do... ), (2) re-position the bolt socket in the mirror by removing it and redoing that part of the base so that it lines up in the middle of the black door strip (best route) , or (3) Bolt on top and glue/tape at the bottom (if I get lazy this is what I will end up doing as it avoids having to pull out the door panel in the event I need to remove the mirrors)...




Then I need to work on eliminating the holes in the door skin from the stock mirrors. I was planning on using some FB to cover the holes since I would like to avoid welding shut the holes if possible. Most of the threads I have seem folks just weld them shut...

Fan heater cover delete arrived. Here are a few photos of the install. The unit is made out of fiberglass and has no holes for the bolts. Easy to mark and drill.







Now in place...

Question

I also removed the cruise control but have a few questions with regards to the vac hoses... I tap the thin one at the "T" but not sure what to do with the thicker hose... not sure where that one routes to???





Here is the photo of where the smaller sized hose ends. I put a rubber cap in the "T".


It is this one that I am not sure where it routes to and how to remove it or if I just plug it or what??

Thank you for the write up and photos.

Ok, the thicker line is just a vent line and doesn't need to be connected or plugged. Cool! Out it comes!

Mirrors removed. No wonder people just cut the wires and are done with them... uff... I had to remove the pins from the plug to be able to pull the wires through the hole... Anyway, I labeled the plug with number and wrote down where each one goes. Mirrors finally out.





Now I can work on the 935 mirrors for fitting and the finish to get ready for paint.

935 styled mirrors fitted... now I need to remove them and do the finishing touches before putting a coat of paint.

I did the bolt on the frame and will do the 3M special double face tape on the bottom.










I have a black piece of vinyl that will cover the hole that can be seen from the inside. I will just glue that piece to the mirror. But here is a photo of what the mirror looks like from the inside of the car without the vinyl in place:
