My 56 Beetle was missing the stock mirrors ( the ones that mount on the top of the door hinges) when I bought it. I ordered the mirrors and the install kits from West Coast Metric . The kit came with no instructions at all, anyone give me a little insight into how I should do this or if I may be in over my head.

Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge,

Cheers,

MK

What style of mounting do you currently have on the car? Is there a threaded portion of the pin showing above the hinge?

Like this one:

Also there seems to be a difference between rounded and pear shaped mirrors for mounting kits. I'm guessing you got the round mirrors?

Mount kit like this?

With this style mirrors?

If so it looks like the large chrome nut with the 2 flats goes on the bottom capturing the brass pin. The mirror slips over top of the brass pin leaving the threads exposed. The chrome hex nut would clamp the mirror in position. I think.
