    Every flatty that I've owned has had the side mirror break off at the bottom of the mounting arm. The side mirror is always useless on the road anyways as it bounces around in the wind. To solve the problem I ordered two of the cheap mirrors from Amazon. I used the second mirror arm as a brace between the lower windshield mount bolt and the mirror head. The mirror stays stock still now, even at highway speeds.

    I had to fix it. Got a warning ticket (from a game warden:rolleyes:) about a hour after the old one broke off.

    Looks great. I wish the stock mirror location on my 2A would work with my Tigertop door.

    Fit the stock tub holes and bolt from the inside.
