Replacement Side Mirrors

Looking for two replacement mirrors for my '85 International. Just the glass (they fell off!). However, I was wondering if just getting some mirror glass cut to size and having it epoxied to the existing mirror frame would work? Anyone ever done that? Special Automotive Mirror Glass required?

Re: Replacement Side Mirrors

I've had smaller outside mirrors redone at a glass shop. I don't think there's any Fed regulations, as they are outside during a crash.
The one thing special is that most mirrors seem to have glass with an anti-glare coating. You don't notice it unless you get a mirror without it and see the difference.

The glass shop shouldn't be too expensive, but retrieving a non-broken mirror head found in a junkyard should be dirt cheap.
Someone said "Making good decisions comes from experience, experience comes from bad decisions." I say there are three kinds of people: those who learn from their mistakes, those who learn from the mistakes of others, and those who never learn.

I've had mirrors redone at a local shop too. The shop will know what glass they need to use, the ones I had done were really cheap.
