    Simply get a hair dryer and cut off the plug part and connect a lighter plug to it. "VOILA!" Homemade heated mirrors!! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    haha, maybe like 10 lighter plugs so you have enough voltage to run the thing.

    my employer's company trucks have em'. the power cord is zip tied to the mirror mounts and runs into the door via a plugged ax-cess hole. each side is some how tied together and is controled by a switch mounted on the dash. now here is my idea : buy a couple of those heated battery type mats, silicone them to the back of the mirrors, zip tie cords to mirror mounts, drill holes through door, run wires maybe to power window hole or speaker hole in side of door, connect each side to fuse box and switch. mount switch in location of choice. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifwhatcha think ?

    btw, pre-made mirrors are pretty pricey. check out my past posts, i did one on this same subject. some one provided me with a link to prices.
