Has anyone seen an after market offering for the inside reinforcement on the sport mirrors (78-82). I thought "Mid America" offered them but what they refer to as an "install kit" looks like a gasket and 2 nuts and I've got those. I only had a drivers side chrome style so I'm steppin' up to the sport type duals.

if their is anything special for the mounting of the sport mirrors it would have to be part of the door itself. when I removed mine it was remove 2 nuts not easy to get to, then remove the mirror and gasket. here is a diagram.

Ages ago (back in high school), I installed similar sport mirrors on my '76 Grand Prix. I don't recall doing anything other than just bolting them in. Of couse, those doors weren't made of fiberglass...
I wanted a Corvette my whole life, but I never dreamed of all the wonderful people I would meet because of it!

I added a mirror to the passenger side of my 75 and it came with 2 rubber inserts that you have to drill a couple holes to put them in and when you tighten the screws the the rubber compresses and makes a strong support to mount the mirror. Zapparex
