Mirror se6a passenger side

Post by Johniewalshe » Wed Mar 07, 2018 12:33 am

Hi all
Looking for a passenger side chrome mirror for se6+. Looking for complete remote mirror or just the chrome casing and base. I have a mirror here but the chrome is poor and the studs are broke in base so can swap out parts if someone has an incomplete mirror.

I can restore but worth checking what's out there.

Also were some se6's which had non remote mirrors. My doors have no sign of holes for cable remote or electric option. Mirrors were missing when I bought car.

RHD SE6 didn’t have a LH mirror as standard - LH cable operated or a pair of electric mirrors were options.

Mine has 2 holes in each door for mirrors but doesn't have the third hole for remote cable or electrical cable.
The consol does not have a switch or hole for one and the door cards do not have holes for remote either.

It's and early 6a, would it be possible that manual mirrors of the 5 were used?

Johnie where are you?.

I have a few LH bodies with good chrome.

The factory supplied either No Mirror, a Manual adjust mirror OR an Internal adjust mirror, Never electric on early 6a.

If the door already has Two holes, but no holes in doorcards I suspect the factory spec manual adjust was fitted, OR a PO fitted an aftermarket unit.

What colour and condition are your doorcards??.

Hi,

That's Great, How much you want for a good chrome body.

I suspect they were manual type ones. Two holes same on each door. Mine is a very early 6a, has the 6 bumpers with the ripples, reflectors and rear seats.

Door cards are blue. Condition.... they were full of cracks but I have spent the last few evenings with fibreglass repair fixing them all. So I condition is now good.

Not sure how I feel drilling holes to fit remote controls

Thanks john
