Common problem with the 80 is when the little tabs break on the outside rear view mirrors.


My fix is a 3d printed petg bracket

Add bracket and supplied longer stainless steel screws to accommodate bracket.

Reinstall the motor and mirror assembly by sliding it up underneat the new bracket and attach the screw on the bottom.

Would love to see more than the pics on your Etsy page to understand better how this works as I've used the shaky mirror fix from Mud with the zip ties for years and it's worked pretty well.

Have you posted in the 80's section in IH8MUD too? You might increase your sales exponentially if this thing really works! ;)

Jb weld works too for a bit, a couple people have had the jb weld fail.

Thanks brentbba, i have posted on ih8mud, and have sold many sets, just thought i would offer the solution to this forum.

Thanks - hadn't seen it there!

Does your bracket just extend out further to encompass the entire top of the mirror bracket then?

Found the thread on MUD! I think one or more of my bottom screw mounts is pretty buggered. How does that bottom support work? Epoxy in place around the split screw hole?

You can epoxy the bottom post, but its made so that the walls of the mount secure ut in place.
