Now Snoops is over his long saga have a try at this...


Nip down to that nice Mr Argosie's shop and buy one of these at £2.98. Take it home, get out a few tools and strip it down to its core parts.

These are the only parts we want, so chuck all the rest in the recycle bin.

Right back on thread. Get hold of this section and grind/cut/file it to take this sort of shape.

Find a metric sized countersunk screw in the toolbox like this, and then braze it on the ground end. Nope, chewing gum or Bluetack will not work.

Ok, sorted now.

Put on a lock nut, and replace the plasic sleve.

Then attatch the little wide angle mirror that you can buy in Halfrauds.

Find a DRZ, and spin on the Noddytech fleximirror. Give the lock nut a quick turn to lock it in place and ride off on road with rear view or twisted around for off road.

Great idea (and I'm sure that Mr Reynolds will like it!!) - but where does the bulb now fit?

:confused:

Greg
 
I'm confused too - where do you plug it into? Where do you get three pin plug to 12v battery adaptors??

Neat idea tho - whats it like at speed, does the mirror blow backwards?
