    I am Jack Redman from Huntington Beach, Ca, and just bought a MiGi built on a 71 VW chassis.  It is complete and runs well, but needs the electrical system repaired.  The lighting system and guages are not functioning.  I have downloaded the wiring diagram and will have it sorted pretty soon. 

    The fender mounted mirrors are pretty much useless to me.  What do you suggest I use to mount a set to the cowl?

    I am looking forward to interacting with the members.

    Welcome, Stacks.

    Good move on the wiring diagram. The Samba web site also posts a lot of tips and diagrams for VW people.

    Mirrors are a common issue. I think most of us have motorcycle mirrors of one description or another, mostly mounted to the windshield frame. My own are from, I think, a Yamaha and they actually bolt through the lower bracket’s fold-down mechanism.

    Your MiGi has a different type of windshield frame, so you’ll have a different setup.

    Jack, Last week, I bought 2 “peep” mirrors.  They work pretty good, but I wish I had gotten the 4″ ones, mine are 3″.  They mount in the leading channel of the windshield frame.  I drilled and tapped a 3/16 hole in the frame for a single set screw holds it all pretty well.  And it removes easily.  The only guage in my MIGI that worked when I bought it was the speedometer which is not electrical.  Watch for and make sure that you have good grounds. 

    Good luck and welcome to the forum.

    I only have the two fender mounted mirrors…for 29 years.

    They are both convex. Once positioned, they provide a pretty good view.

    Search the site for mirrors, you’ll see a lot of discussion.
