I just installed one one on wvcat. I bought a kit from Vic Yarberry that includes a new gasket and the rivnuts for the door & screws. Also included in the kit is the deminsions to install it. Here's his address if interested. I can also get the deminsions when I go down to the garage in a little while.

Well I seemed to have misplaced the paper that came with the kit but I measured my mirror.
from the front outer edge of the door(where the top rolls over to the side) its 4 3/8's to the first hole and 11 to the rear hole.

I hope this makes sense.

I'm sorry I took so long to get back, but I have been having trouble trying to post. I measured 4 cars, all original and they were all a little differen't. From the beginning of the door going back on the body line to the beginning of the mirror it was anywhere from 3 1/2 to 4 inches. I believe if you leave adequate clearance for the door to open, it would be all right.

Terry,
is the eliminator still around? if it is can you let all of us know? Someone in here could probably buy some of the parts off of the eliminator you got the mirror from
thanks
