AshG 20th February 2010 10:53 AM

been having a look at some of the fail points this morning the only one i cant seem to find a simple solution for is the convex mirror glass. i thought i would be able to just buy a replacement glass that was convex but they dont seem to exist.

does anyone know how difficult it would be to buy a convex glass for a different mirror and cut it down to fit mine?

Well done Ash
that was a good result really.
sounds like just a few pedantic fails as is the norm........
and best of all , apart from the noise no big money fails
or things that are going to put you back to much
will you still have to buy Dogwood his curry
cheers les g

I am probably having a silly moment here Ash :o

Any chance that one of the self adhesive Caravan towing mirrors would do the job !!
Some of those jobbies are mirror finished plastic & wouldn't be adverse to a little trimming ;)
Not going to be very long lived but might do the job !!??

The only other solution that I can see is to fit a larger mirror ( Probably not an option at this late stage )

Here's the sort of thing I mean :)

Towing mirror

Not self adhesive but if it has a plastic mirror lense , it may do the trick !!

Hard luck Ash, looks like he's been fair but stuck to the manual to the letter mainly due to the audience. Never heard that one about the heat shrink being unsuitable though.

You shall soon be there though......AndyH

Sorry to hear about the fail Ash. However, it won't be a big problem for a man of your talents to get it through next time and the knowledge you pass on will be invaluable to us.;)

By the way it was my birthday yesterday and I turned 59 :eek: does that make me the oldest lunatic in this assylum? :D :D

unlucky but well done aswell. Shouldn't take long to correct those points, then she can be enjoyed to the full:)

Simple answer to the mirror prob.
Unbolt it, chuck a cheap nasty one on .

Try Barnies bikes up Luton road
