I ordered a new mirror for my car from these guys today. There’s a lot of road grime, and even more salt, covering most of the car, and I was going to take it to the car wash today, but I realized that the gaping hole where the mirror used to be would let a lot of water into the door. It’s sad that this is what it took for me to finally get around to buying a new mirror. Although, I suppose that looking at a few of the biggest junkyards in the state counts for something.
I almost ordered from CarMirror.com, but they don’t have a secure checkout. And I also almost ordered from Ford Parts Network just so I could get the exact OEM replacement, but I saved about $45 going with the other place.
So, by the time the mirror gets here and I install it, we should be getting enough snow that washing the car won’t do me any good.
