The glass on the side view mirrors of my 70 read 12 DMI-9 and 2 DMI-0. I assume the first number is the month and the last number is the year. What does the DMI stand for? Thanks

12 DMI-9 = Dec. 1969
2 DMI-0 = Feb. 1970

DMI = Donnelly Mirror, Inc. as stated by Gary

When was you car made?

I wish!
It took me a long time, and a good amount of luck to score what I did.

What side/type/dates are you looking for?
As an example;
I was looking for a passenger side mirror;
For a "bullet" style mirror;
Dated before June 1970 (my car is a 06A car).

I'm guessing members here can help.

I believe this was suggested to me elsewhere;
IIRC they offer first gen dated mirrors, not second gen stuff.
Them and Paragon are the only places that I have heard of doing any date coded mirror stuff. I guess the market is not there.

I still have a driver side date coded mirror for a 68 Corvette that I bought from Paragon 22 years ago.
