Hey Team! Any thoughts and ideas and wisdom on installing a new rear view mirror on my 1972 280SE 4.5? Thanks!

I have done this. Suggest you tape over where you will drill your holes so you will not chip the paint much. Start with small bit and move up to larger ones. You may want to put some paint or preservative around the hole so it does not rust. I positioned it such that it is symmetrical with the driver's side mirror.

Are you putting plastic inserts in the holes to hold the screws or what?
