    Anybody have a good way to keep those things were they're 'sposed to be. I'm getting annoyed by the fact that it keeps coming off in my hand when I go to adjust it. I'm using superglue right now, does that special rearview mirror glue work any better?

    Any glass shop should have the glue to put it back on good as factory. It wont cost you much more than those kits from autozone.

    well mine was off for the past three weeks, and i finally got it up for good. I tried several things before i got it to stay up. I tried super glue, JB weld, and finally i went through two tubes of rearview mirror glue(the first didnt work cause i didnt let it set long enough) Ok so get the rearview mirror glue, and despite what it says on the package, let it set for more than 15 minutes, i let mine dry for a day, just to be on the safe side. That should work for you, just be sure to take the button off the mirror before you start glueing.

    here's what to do:
    1) throw that skinny thing away
    2) go to your local auto parts store, and get a wink mirror.
    3) install wink mirror.
    4) be amazed at how you ever drove without one in your very large rig.

    i bought two, and cut them down, then stuck 'em together. now i have a wink that goes almost exactly all the way across the top of my cab. i can see back to yesterday with that thing!
    i'll grab the digital camera from work when it stops raining today, and try and post a pic.

    Use the mirror glue and let it stand for a day or two. If it is really cold(Colorado) the day you do it, then park in the garage and turn the heat on or use a hair dryer to warm the glass up to receive the glue. If you do it cold it won't last long at all.
