Thanks for the info! I managed to get a hold of an 8mm sump plug socket and successfully removed both mirrors. However the RH mirror stem which goes in to the bar has a wider ridge on the fitment which means it will not enter far enough in to the LH bar. Did you come across this issue? I will try and add some pics later.Hi guys,
For anyone that isn't confident in making their own tool to undo those square bolts on the ends of the street rod bars, I used an 8mm sump plug socket, made for vw's, volvos and other european cars. I picked it up from a specialty auto parts store. 9mm would be a perfect size but 8mm works and is more commonplace. Easy to undo, swap the mirror stems to the opposite bar mounts, and tighten back up in the underhung position. As noted in previous comments though, look out for a spring, locking pin and plastic washer when removing and installing the mirror stems.
