Just thought I would give you all some insight on these Ramco type mirrors.

Randy mentioned that they are held on with Velcro and silicone, well this is true, but thank goodness they did not put the silicone onto the Velcro

Much to my surprise as well, these new to me mirrors were not identical, they look the same but underneath, hmmm there were differences, so once I took it apart, I had to make sure that the right pieces went to the right mirror.

I ended up glassbead cleaning the entire unit, painting it, and installing it onto the coach.

they mirrors do look awesome
they work better when we hook them up (all we need is time)

Bill,

Excellent job on the mirrors! Great paint job.

Looks like something I need to add to my coach's To Do List. A list that NEVER seems to end, by the way...
