Post by mbskeam » Wed Feb 02, 2005 7:45 am

hello,
has anyone fixed a mirror that is loose in the body?
I like this mirror and shape the body has. and I'm cheap
was thinking of drilling a small hole into metal part and filling it with silicone or something like that,
has anyone done this?

Mbskeam-
You 'might' be able to add some crazy glue/or something like that ? & rotate the stem to try & spread it into the ball & socket. ???
Filling it with sillycone $ might as well, buy a mirror.
Jireh mirrors are about $5. I can be cheap too. Ask my wife. ;D

Hello
I have fixed two types of mirrors this way If you have a pet or Vet. supply house you can pick up a large syringe full it with silicon and inject it into either one of the screw holes in the back or put the mirror face down on a soft surface push on the stem gently so you can inject the silicon past the ball mount. should take care of it clean up the syringe real good it has a lot of uses like oiling cables ETC.
