Re: driver side mirror mount broken! :(

I have repaired mirrors with similar type of damage using the following product; Tiger Seal.

It is a PU adhesive, which means it takes a while to 'cure' (around a day), but forms a strong, yet flexible bond.

It should be applied with a mastic gun when both surfaces are dry & clean, and duct tape or masking tape should be used to support the mirror whilst the adhesive does its stuff. (just be careful when removing the tape that you don't pull the mirror off).

Its available in black,white or clear.

It can be messy, but thinners on a cloth will remove any excess from your hands or the bodywork.



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