You will have differing holes in the door for those two mirror versions.......some will need to be welded up + paint, some new to be drilled in. The old holes will not be covered by the early mirror

If you went for the non electric manual adj mirrors they bolt right up to existing holes......no messing about and weigh next to nothing compared to electric.

Yep, I tried looking for any set and these early mirrors happened to come up for me before the later style manual mirrors did. I would be curious what the weight difference is per mirror of the later style manual vs early style manual. I think there is a guy making reproductions of this later style (as well as other body parts) though I did not find out about this until after getting this pair.

Thankfully the service manual shows the correct measurements to place the old style mirror. Now to learn how to weld...

This is the guy making reproduction parts (including the mirrors) in the EU somewhere. He wants $300/set shipped.

Welp, I can't shift into 2nd gear now for some reason, like it won't let me push the shifter all the way forward as I need to.. This just happened on a drive with my daughter -- quite unsettling coming out of a corner. I've got all the other gears. Just 2nd won't engage, even with the car stationary. I pulled up the boot around the shifter and nothing's blocking it. Until the middle of the drive today it was going fine...

It's a rebuilt trans, so shouldn't be internal. My first concern is that the u-joint coupler to the gear selector input shaft has shifted or come loose.

Dan, I was thinking the same thing. I remembered you telling me that (and being super grateful) when I got the thing, thinking one less thing to worry about! Still no grinding or anything strange, just no 2nd gear to be had..

So to do this, I have to drop the transmission yeah?
