  • Guess the part.

    There is a new Spyker part, and I'm the first that will have it on the road car. I just got it today from Victor. Who can guess what it is (SpykerOwner is excluded on this one).

    I know what it is, but I never would have guessed. I have the feeling Dan will be interested

              Yes, you are right, of course, but you had an advantage

              This is the new periscope mirror holder.

              The inside mirror is hopeless when the top is folded down. It is so bad that I took the top off permanently. With the periscope holder you car raise the mirror above the edge of the windshield, and look over the folded top.

              A brilliant and effective solution. Thank you Victor.

              I will show pictures when installed.

                holy smokes! I was told that they were working on this one. I certainly do want one! So what does a guy have to do to get one!?

                  Apparently there are not many of these yet. There is one on a factory car, and I think I have the only other polished one, but I expect they will soon become available.

                  Shall I put one for you on the shopping list?

                      Bad news, Tom was not able to install the mirror today. We need more information about how to take the existing glued mirror off.

                      A Triumph glass specialist that Tom called suspected that it had to be done by heating up the mirror foot. They use a small torch, but it seemed to be too risky to try this without consulting the Spyker Factory. Tom does not want me to end up with a cracked windshield.

                        So, the Spyker factory confirmed that the way to take off the foot is with heat. They recommend using a hairdryer, but caution to let the windshield heat up slowly and evenly.

                            Tom said to wait until we have a really hot day, and put the car in the full sun, this makes the whole windshield evenly heated and then use the hairdryer in the mirror area. This makes the temperature difference as small al possible and reduces stress in the windshield.

                              Hi i have played a little with the bonded mirrors on my 1000 MV Agusta.to replace the old glass with a anti dazzle new mirror. i found that as you get the glass adhesive warm you can also work one corner away with a very thin scalple cutting the adhesive away and this helps take the pressure off the backing, or in your case the front windscreen but a little at a time and carefully too!!

                              i hope this may also help with your bonded mirror too ?

                              Then i have used celuliose thinners or white spirit to remove the traces of old adhesive.
