It's been awhile, but I think I got them from the hardware store for tractor stuff, honestly can't remember though. They fit perfectly, so maybe I got them from a VW supplier? Look at the various venders, I bet someones got them.

Hi

Beetle dipsticks work as well, 40 hp ones are the best as they have a smaller handle, of course you need to shorten one leg.

I've used the hardware store type and they scratch paint on the outer edge of the hinge.

Just looking at your side mirror, I was wondering if anyone makes a cool looking set of mirrors that thread into the stock hole? I know there are quite a few sport bike mirrors to choose from, don't really want to drill more holes if I don't have too.

Hi

Sorry about the thread hijack.

On my old 1302 I cut the stock mirrors down to just a stalk drilled and taped the stalk and bolted modified Ford mirrors to the stalk.

Hi Jason

I've sold the car, but I kept the mirror stalks. I've attached another photo of my old car with the mirrors, they were used on local Ford Falcons (same model Falcon that Mel Gibson drove in Mad Max/Road Warrior) down here in the 70s, they had section on them that I cut off and glassed over where they bolted to the door.

The orange mirror is random mirror I found on eBay to show how they look with attaching section still attached.

The two black mirrors are the sort I'm going to be using on my new car, again from an old local Falcon.

Steve

Very cool, I think a lot of late model bugs could use the idea! Have you posted these in a separate "Mirror Mounting" post in body? Might be nice, those looking probably won't see it in here!

Hi Jason

Good idea, I will repost it. The great thing about is you can change mirror styles without drilling more holes.

Looking good Jay. Coming together nicely. I like your LED idea for the turn signals. I'm still trying to figure out a slick way to do mine before I get it painted.

Just thought I throw in a few pics of the roof spoiler, it's really well done and Joe really came through.
