Re: Damn Vandals!!

Hi there and welcome.

If the mirror works and you are finding it difficult to obtain a replacement in the correct colour, then the bracket can be repaired by using a product called Tiger Seal, which is a PU adhesive normally used to secure bodykits & spoilers to cars.

You apply it via a mastic gun, then need to somehow tape/secure the mirror in position for around a day for the adhesive to cure.

It doesn't form a brittle join, so its pretty good for plastics - I've used this myself for a couple of similar jobs (Rover 25 & VW Polo), so it may be a good contingency plan.

When applying - its a bit messy, so a cloth & thinners is the best bet to wipe away any excess.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
