    ^ What I did with my Mirage today! First day back on the road and I was whipping it like a rented mule! (Doing yard work.)

    The pic makes the trailer look ginormous, but it's actually a light weight (160#) sailboat trailer that I sometimes haul brush and other things on.

    MetroMPG: not sure if driving an automobile without *at least* a driver's side mirror is legal in the Province of Ontario.

    You may be pulled over.

    Driving a car on public roads with no mirrors is dangerous.. for you, and for other drivers, too. That's why there's general rules for car maintenance on the roads. Even if you don't need a safety anymore. I'm gonna look this one up.

    And on top of that you can't see out the back. The stuff people do that I wouldn't

    Hello all,
    . . . . I know that it is illegal to drive a vehicle with no left hand rear view mirror in every state.

    I ordered some orange vinyl from Aliexpress, and wanted to wrap the silver part around the switch panels, just to get some color in the car.
    I tried wrapping them while the switch panels were on the steering wheel, sounds good, doesn't work.
    Eventually I found tytotheler92s post about adding cruise control to his car, but it explained exactly how to take the steering wheel apart so I could wrap them out of the car. So I took apart the steering wheel last night, disconnected the battery first since I didn't feel confortable hitting it with a screwdriver for the airbag to come out(I tried getting the switch panels out without removing the airbag, but it just wouldn't work (and my neighbours probably aren't happy since my horn went of a couple of times).
    Then I spent an hour or two wrapping (first time doing it ever) and I am really happy with the result!

    Of course I was just funnin' about them being 5 lug wheels. I figured someone would call me out on it.

    I got them from Summit Racing. Been buying lots of stuff from Summit Racing for my 1972 Plymouth Scamp.

    They were $40.99 for all four! They're just wheel covers of course.

    Does Summit carry trim rings?

    Sweet! I don't do vinyl wraps lol... If I do something I'll probably paint it... Looks really good and brightens up the interior really well if I get around to it I'll probably do that sometime in the near future and take off the trim pieces and paint them.
