As much as I really like this mod, it was the MOST difficult and frustrating work I have done on this car to date. Some may not care for the caps, but I love the look on Mercedes and other newer cars.

Biggest issue was fishing wires through the mirror and doors. I followed a write up on another forum (on a 300), which helped, but there are so many intricate little details, fiddly bits. However, I will say that the second mirror took waaaaay less time after I had learned many, many lessons doing the first.

I will not do this ever again. But I am comforted by the fact that not many have these (and now I know why!), plus mine are a little different.

The caps came from E-Bay, and the red leds on the mirror glass were designed for a Honda motorcycle of some kind, but conform to the shape of the glass pretty much. I did want to buy the Muth signal mirrors but could not justify the $300 for them:

That looks awesome.

I planned to do that but either paint them over with tint or a thin layer of paint. I planned to do that until I realized the total cost of it all.

Wow, those are cool indeed. BTW- how difficult was it to change the color of your fender HEMI badge? looks good red.
Yup, those are overlays, got them from e-bay along with one for the Charger emblem on the trunk

And thanks to all for the feedback! Kinda makes me feel better about consuming so much time on these...

Good job Steve. I was going through some old pictures the other day, and I saw one of your car when you first picked it up a couple of years ago. It's come a long way......

Well, let's talk about the second mirror. I started removing it around 7pm wednesday, it was back on the car around 1 pm next day (took about 3 - 4 hours). Fully completed and wired by 4 p.m. connected as per the post on the other forum that I linked to in the OP (wires in loom under carpet passenger side).

The first mirror took much, much longer, but I learned many tips that sped up the process on the second mirror.

Bob/Andre,

Thanks for the kind words. And Andre, you can have your mirror back now! Do I have one or both?
