    I see that Bill Collins andZROCKS 71 both have mirrors mounted to the windshield upright.

    If possible, please share how you have accomplished this.

    Thanks Bill

    The ones on Bill’s “Angelica” are “rain gutter” clamp on style if they are the same ones that I put on the car.

    There are allen snub screws that hold each mirror in place. Due to the design of the CMC windshield frame, I drilled two access holes in the inner part of the channel to get the allen wrench at the snub screws.

    I have been given a set of mirrors and had considered what you stated.

    I had also thought about making a set of tabs to insert into the frame and mount the mirrors to the tab

    Bill,

    That’s probably a better idea than drilling holes in the windshield frame channel.

    My current “Pink MG” has an OEM MG-TD windshield, frame and mount. It can be folded flat (towards the radiator) as on the real TD’s.

    It has a curved, slotted channel that the previous owner put a couple of Harley-Davidson mirrors on. They had threaded stems. The passenger side mirror¬†sheared off. When I get the car done, I’ll replace the driver’s side one. It was a neat idea.

    Don’t forget to post some pics!

    Thanks for the info.

    I’ll study more on how to mount the mirrors.

    This windshield will also tilt forwards not that it will ever happen.

    Once I have my wheels mounted and the new bumpers I’ll post the before and after pictures.
