Whoo hoo - My Mirror is Fixed!

Yah! After a few months of driving around with no right side view mirror on my car, it's finally fixed!

It was incredibly hard to find a replacement, because all of the after-market mirrors in this model are all made in black and my car is white. Since it's a plastic mirror, painting a black plastic mirror white would have been a real challenge. Luckily, my aunt and uncle found a used white mirror that I received for Christmas!

Today, I finally went down and installed the new mirror on my car! I removed the old pieces and put the new mirror on. I didn't break any of the snap in pieces either! The electronic motor is even functioning, so I'll be able to once again change the orientation of the mirror from inside of my car.

Oh, and did I mention that installing it myself saved me over $300? Yah!

Here are a few photos of my big project!
