Rear View/ Centre mirror change?

Postby wren1710 » Sat Dec 03, 2016 5:40 pm

I need to replace my rear view mirror, but I don't want the standard late pearl grey - I want black. I could just buy a standard sucker fit one from halfords and I have one but it keeps falling of and has finaly broken, but what about the classic mini mirror? Does anyone know if they would fit, their very similar and both by wingard but does anyone know?

I have used one of these , clipped to the old mirror . The old one is tiny and 'distressed' . With the hood down it blocks a lot of the rear view , so this helps .

The Mini mirror fixes in a similar way to the Minor but the window frame looks squarer in section so it might be a problem. The distance between the two holes on the under side edge is about 1 1/2"
Hope this helps
