    it's not where they mount thru the controls that's the problem they have another adjuster nut for the mirror housing that loosens up and flop around and when I go to tighten the adjuster it won't do anything to keep it in place

    I've never had good luck with custom mirrors. The stock ones on my BD are great. They don't move and you can actually see something out of them. I've got a big box full of custom mirrors but no pairs....

    You need to get them adjusted and then put a little tac weld on them so they don't fall off:oldlaugh:

    I have ruined some custom mirrors over tightening the Allen screws. You gotta be careful once it's stripped its useless for anything other than a pinwheel and it doesn't take much

    I have RWD mirrors and they are great. I stripped one out (my fault) and they gave me a new one too.
