1947 convertible top motors, outside mirrors
I would encourage you to talk to the folks at Hydro-E-Lectric regarding your convertible top needs.
On your mirrors, we have removed the original glass, restored the mirror base/bezel, etc., and then had a new mirror glued in after everything was finished.
An option, anyway
It's supposed to be fun!
