72 DG4 mirror semi restore

Bought these a while ago . Decided it’s time to do a polish on the bench buffer. On this one the stud was gone so I chucked it up on the drill press and drilled a 25/64 drill and put in a 3/8ths heli coil worked out great no pictures though . Need to get all new SS washers and nylon washers but I think it looks good . Passenger side will be easier as it’s all there . Glass is perfect in both just needs to be cleaned. And yup that’s my ugly mug after working all day

Re: 72 DG4 mirror semi restore

Hard to believe that's the same mirror -- it cleaned up very nicely!

That looks great!

If you were closer I'd see if I could talk you into polishing the big 'ol mirrors and stainless arms on the C6000

Re: 72 DG4 mirror semi restore

Passenger side didn’t come out as well . The mount was steel so I had to paint it I’m assuming its aftermarket. And it wouldn’t take a good polish either

I would say they do . Itís Just 72 was one year only Iím not one for originality but I got these at a great price. And since my truck is a custom camper they fit the truck.

the 71 and earlier have slightly longer legs.. depending how they're mounted and how the rest of the truck sits, they may fit the lines better than the shorter leg 72 only style.. really a matter of taste..

although most purests typically want the correct mirror style on their truck, the folks that bought these trucks new didn't always follow that back then.. some of these trucks came with the small automotive or 'sport' style mirrors and were replaced at the dealer or shortly after.. depending what time of year truck was sold, which mirrors were in the parts dept. inventory, and when the customer or dealer installed them, either style may be found on other model year trucks.. and now of course 50 years later, anything goes

personally, I like these on this 71 so I was lucky they were already on there
