my silly cow sister in law stole off with my camera... so photo's and the doco are on hold atm...

I realise the falcon is white... the XT mirrors were a gumbi arze black... and looked stupid... but now with them being silver they make my mag's stand out... and give it a bit of a classy look... Kind of like the chrome strips in the bumper with Ghia's and stuff... it's hard to discribe

You'll see what i mean with photo's

Nicco still has reserved comment... cause he was over at night...

yeah the look like the 120 buck ones...

Just have to be gentle and make sure you have a good hold of the mirror "lens" a standard (flat bladed) screw driver helps out... but only slide it in the edge of the glass about 3/4 of an inch... any further and you will snag on the motor essembly...

and then just run around the lens levering it bit by bit...

all up the mod cost me 15 bucks for paint... and about 12 of my car with no wing mirrors...

Press the glass in at one side to unclip, then the other side to unclip the rest, theres 3 clips holding them on. Pry them off carefully with a flatblade screwdriver. I'm pretty accident prone and i got mine off ok lol...:lol:
