Hangin' A Wink....

Sep 12, 2013 update on Roland444's 1971 Ford Pinto

More of a backdate than an update. As this is a ‘70’s ride, I thought a 5-panel Wink mirror would be a nice period-correct interior mod. Old & new Winks come with a selection of brackets & hardware, but I opted not to use them when I realized I’d have to drill new holes. I really wanted to use the existing sun visor mounting holes & OEM screws to attach the Wink. A chunk of aluminum angle netted these after some time wittlin’ with a hacksaw, file & drill press. The back edge is contoured for head clearance & better appearance. The vinyl strips are molding used to trim the canopies on model planes.
