Good afternoon, well I finally removed my mirrors for the 1st time, I was worried like everyone else abut breaking them, it took a few good wacks to get them off but I did it okay. Yep, a very poor design. Before I put them back on I sprayed the holes and posts with white lithium grease and it helped get them on and off again.Would like magic mirrors but the price is kinda crazy. To me it looks like I could remove the bottom 2 clips and use them for a template to make solid metal ones and drill the holes in them. Then I would need to find magnets to get. Anyone know the width, thickness and hole size to get? I also thought about using the super strong Velcro we ushere for our tollway transponders on the bottom 2. Once you put it on your windshield and transponder it never comes off.Thanks, Mike.
