    I modified the original kit to work with the later passenger side.

    I still need a good driver's side glass if anyone has one they would like to sell.

    Very cool. I found some mirrors that are no good I can use to practice removing the glass.

    I don't think it's possible to remove the later glass without breaking it. I killed three driver's an two passenger's.

    I haven't looked for a replacement. Maybe the HELP! section at the parts store can bail me out.

    I think the latter ones have a diffent type of glue to hold them on it is black in color. the earler ones have a clear to yellow color and come off easer

    Yea thats what I am thinking too. The later ones are much harder to remove. I have even broken one of the later ones. I am doing a couple test mirrors to see if they can be drilled without removing the glass

    I just don't know that there is going to be a way to get the newer style ones apart without breaking them. I have the same problem with the 4th GEN ones. the glue is just too strong of a bond. I have been drilling the 4th GEN ones with the glass still attached. That has been the only way to make it successful without replacing the glass.
