Looking for advice for the removal of the mirror glass in the early type door mirrors (see pic) without damaging the glass or the plastic surround so that I can have the mirrors rechromed. Other mirrors I have some across had a spring behind the glass, and when pushed in against the spring, the plastic surround could be easily removed. For these mirrors the glass can't be pushed in and the surround is a tight fit, so hopefully there is some trick to disassemble without damage. Your help will be most appreciated.

No help I know but I think the old style mirrors are bonded together and don't readyly come apart?

Thanks Neil,  I think you must be right unfortuately, however i do have a black plastic bodied mirror of the same bullet shape, so I might have to cut it open and see whats inside. Thanks again for taking the time to reply. regards, Eric Nisbet
