Anyone out there have the metal mounting bracket that fits under the mirror the mirror screws to? Moss motors does not sell one and less you buy the whole mirror. It's number 34 on the Moss motors site under side mirrors

tray posting a WTB (wanted to buy) add over in the Trader section. Several folks over there are constantly stripping parts cars, you'll find the part quiet easily!

Welcome to the fun!

Metal was from hardware store, silver plate with two holes at each end. Needed to bend slightly, drill a new hole, grind off end sides, and bevel ends.

Washers below to raise.

Easy and cheap to fabricate.

Moss 165-145 includes both the mirror base to body and the mounting bracket. The replacements are now plastic, rather than pot metal.

Nice job. I actually just melted some left over lead and made one from scratch.

"I actually just melted some left over lead and made one from scratch."

Since I'm already invested in this thread 'gotta ask:

I know lead is soft, though not sure what temp. it melts at. A mold too complicated. Did you just make a block then machine it?

How many hours?

I have had several good interactions/purchases with

I just Facebook message them and they get right back to me. I bought a full sideview mirror from them recently.
