Ok, so I finally had had it with the worthless, floppy, Chinese mirrors I had on the car. Just got the made in USA mirrors from Paragon ($135 for the pair) and they are rock solid! Wish I had done this in the first place.
I will have to remember that the next time I purchase mirrors. I did get some from China and they are great, at this time, guess we will see in a couple of years come. I was surprised at how will they were made.??? Purchase off ebay!
F4Gary, did you find the USA mirrors had more adjustability than the old ones? Here's my problem. I put in a right-hand mirror. Either I didn't get the screw holes quite right, or the mirror isn't quite right, but I find I can't adjust the outer edge back far enough to see the right-hand fender. I can if I stretch my neck but that's not good. I'm wary of mucking with the mounting holes.
For you people who have sloppy mirrors for a temp fix put some locktite on the ball and work it in behind the mirror adjust the mirror let it set, you can still adjust the mirror a couple times before you need more locktite

I tried that many times, didn't work worth a crap. Paragon had the pair of USA made mirrors for $135. I wish I had bit the bullet years ago instead of trying to glue my Chinese crap mirrors.
