PostSubject: MIRROR PLACEMENT?   Mon Dec 26, 2016 10:38 am

SO I GOT SOME FENDER MIRRORS FOR MY 58'SAVOY FOR CHRISTMAS, PRETTY COOL GIFT! IM WORKING ON CLEANING THEM UP AND A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE IS A GLASS GUY SO I'LL HAVE THE GLASS REPLACED TOO. ANYWAYS, THE BIG QUESTION IS, WELL ACTUALLY TWO QUESTIONS BUT I'LL START WITH THE MOUNTING HOLES. IF ANYBODY HAS A FENDER OFF AND COULD GET ME SOME MEASUREMENTS ON THE HOLES MAYBE FROM THE TOP BACK CORNER OF THE FENDER THAT MEETS THE DOOR FORWARD AND THEN FROM THE HOLES TO THE HOOD LINE? ITS THE ONLY WAY I SEE POSSIBLE BUT MAYBE YOU GUYS KNOW A BETTER WAY? SECOND OF ALL IS THE GASKET MATERIAL, WHATS IT MADE OF SO I COULD MAKE SOME, OR MAYBE SOMEBODY HAS SOME GASKETS THEY COULD SELL, OR KNOWS WHERE TO BUY SOME REPOPS?
ANY INFO HELPS, THANKS!

That's a great gift! I would recommend checking Gary Goers catalog for the gaskets.

http://www.christinecarclubforum.com/t3684-gary-goers-catalog-price-list-order-forms?highlight=gary+goers

They were a stiffer rubber/plastic back in the day if I remember correctly.

Photos are to  help you understand how I measured (on driver side) mirror. Use measurements below for actual value. I repeated measurements on passenger mirror but did not take photos.

From EDGE of fender by DOOR to to front edge of mirror mount = 6 3/8" Repeated on passenger side (no photo) = 6"

From EDGE of fender by COWELL to front edge of mirror mount = 2 1/2" Repeated on passenger side (no photo) = 2 3/8"

From EDGE of fender by HOOD to rear edge of mirror mount = 3 1/8" Repeated on passenger side (no photo) = 3"

You're welcome Brandon. Actually, I should remove the mirrors and get the hole location for the mirror bracket. If you haven't installed your mirrors yet, let me know and I'm sure I could find some time to do that. That would take a little more "guess work" out if it.

Not necessary...but thanks for the recognition Wayne. Wink

I HAVEN'T GOTTEN AROUND TO IT YET, STILL WAITING TO HEAR SOMETHING FROM GARYGOERS FOR THE GASKETS HE HAS LISTED. PROLLY JUST GONNA MAKE SOMETHING NEXT WEEK. IF YOU WANTED TO TAKE A MIRROR OFF THAT WOULD DEFINITELY HELP BUT YOU REALLY DONT HAVE TO I SHOULD BE ABLE TO LAND THEM HOLES PRETTY CLOSE. DO YOUR MIRRORS HAVE GASKETS, I CANT REALLY TELL IN THE PICS?

big hole to edge of fender (by Door) = 10 5/8"
little hole for bracket screw to edge of fender (by Door) = 7 3/8"
big hole to edge of fender (by Hood) = 3 1/16"
little hole for bracket screw (by Cowell) = 2 9/16"

notes:

Mine had no gasket (wish it would have had one)
Make holes snug for locating pin and small enough to thread bracket screw.
Note position of little bracket.

You're welcome Brandon, I'm very happy to help you out. I'm sure your 58 would definitely "hold a candle" to mine. Pictures hide a lot of wear and tear!

The place to meet up would be the Perry Super Cruise. I'd have to get my courage up for a long trip like that in my tired old car.
