    Smashed my mirror while reversing

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I was reversing out of my garage when running late and smashed my passenger mirror. It broke a part of the external mirror cover. The mirror itself still works fine. But there is a lot of wind noise. The part can't be replaced without replacing the entire mirror mechnism which costs $960 just for the part prior to installation and painting. So for now, I'm probably going to try to fill this in with epoxy. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Thank you so much. I'll go get that. My deductible is $1k, but also, my insurance rate will go up because my wife was in a fender bender that was her fault recently, so we lost our "accident forgiveness" clause.

    I got the one from eBay. At that price it's a no brainier. Thank you again so much. I'll probably try to install it myself if I can figure he videos on doing that. If not, I'll take it in to get a quote.
    Cheers!

    Dang. I’ve done that before with a previous car. Got real close to doing it with my Stinger once. It totally sucks. Glad you got a discount on one
