Fender Mirror Disassembly

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Looking to buy a pair of early style fender mirrors, but before I commit I want to ensure it is possible to disassemble them so I can have them re-chromed. Has anyone taken a pair apart, or have a Japanese Workshop manual that may show this?

Regards

Ray

In case anyone else wanted to know, on these old style mirrors the screw is behind the glass. The mirror is held down by glue, which is so hard by now that taking it off in one piece would be an achievement.

I thought about heat but I think the glue was too set for it to make much of a difference.

Also, unless you heat the tools you are working with and the entire assembly you run the risk of temperature differential cracking of the glass. Last thing I needed was hot glass breaking everywhere.
