    Hello,
    Well with my truck on the road and loud as heck with dual 2.50" flowmaster 40's. I have a feeling I will end up knowing every cop in the area. So I need to get my rear view mirror back on. What type of glue whould I use?
    Thanks
    Adam

    Rear view mirror glue, any parts house or WalMart has it.

    Just stop by a local auto glass shop. They will most likely glue it on for free. At least we did at my store and all the other shops in town did too. While they are doing it, buy the guy a soda from the vending machine. That's usually all it takes!

    Since I really don't like bothering others for crap that I can do, I do it myself. checker sells the small glue kit for 3.00 thats it takes 2 minutes and 15 to cure. :D

    Don't know if this helps but; I bought one of the aftermarket mirrors @ Auto Zone and the mirror doesn't stay in the bracket, and I thought a bigger one would help visibility, but it only keeps both visors from sitting flush. :rolleyes:


    Buy a good OEM if poss.

    Friend of mine swears by this method:

    Superglue piece of saran wrap to the mounting "button" on the side that adheres to the windshield. Then superglue the button to the windshield.

    He told me that after I bought the mounting glue "kit", which seemed like a ripoff since it was over $5, and is one time use, even though there is plenty of glue to do more than one.
