Talking installing slr mirrors or any

hi boyz and girlz i just installed slr mirrors it took about 4 hours its my 1st time ,my car is power mirrors and i was with limit tools but all the tools you should need. 1 8mm socket rench, 2 flat head, 3 philps head, 4 electric tape or connectors, 5 wire cutters THATS ALL FOR TOOLS. NOW 1st thing to do is take all the screws out of da side panel, 2 use your hands and grap the side of the mirror triangle is (inside the car) and pull up towards you, 3 slow but got to use some strengh or use a flat head to pop open the panel the whole panel must be hanging off, 4 you have to take off the connectors to your oem, 5 take all the screws off with a 8 mm rench and cut the wires thats what i did, there will be a form thing or the rubber piece of the oem mirrors take that and use it on the new 1, 6 wire them up what ever color it goes with. 7 they will b a extention on the wires for you to took up on your "light up mirrors "driver side i just grounded it where the fuse box is at with the srs light, and passanger side grounded in the fuse box area too but with the 20a fuse for which one but its in the lower one your mirror will light up only if you have your keys turn on to the 2nd one but it will always be on now repeat it back, backwards and you have it set up,

yeah the slr mirrors are smaller and i was kind of disappointed when i found out they didnt have a motor in them, but i think they look pretty cool.

I had a problem with the bolts being too long and I could hear the wind when i was going fast, but they are adjustable so I ended up getting a better fit.

The only problem I've had with them is that when I adjust my mirrors just right, after some driving they move from where I put them, but it's not too big a deal

for my M3 mirrors there were no threads in them....what I did was take out the three bolts in the factory mirror and put them in the other holes...i filled the holes with some compound that you have to mix together and it gets hard....then stuck the bolts in there making sure there was plenty of compound.....i had to wait about a day or two before i could install them....

k! so i understand you correctly ( cuz i dont' want my mirrors to fall off! lol)
fill up the holes with the compound stuff, let dry for a few days, then you screw the new screws into the compound right?

yeah you might want to rough up the surface on the inside of the tube(clean) before you use the compound

on another note, I went to home depot and got some (memory foam) weather strip and put it on the mirrors so the water wouldnt get in...if you take your time and lige it up you can get it to work pretty well...i found this out when i took them off for wireing

when you goto install make sure you take your time when you tighten the bolts. if you tighten the to fast they could possible break the seal you just made.

i have had my mirrors on for 7 months and havent had a problem

k that looks easy enuff, i'm prolly just doing it wrong or being impatient!

k i picked up sum jb weld stuff to fill up the holes,
so i rough up the holes, fill em in, it says the stuff will harden in 4 minutes, should i screw the screws in before it's hardened or after?
(by the way thanks for answering all my questions!)
