Well Joe you’re right, the base has a V front and back. Pretty good repro for quality but the method of retaining the glass is a little different, it only uses one large recess instead of a recess for the glass and another for the split ring as the orig mirror does. The glass is slight larger and will not fit the orig, have to drive out the ball stud to use the top with the old mount so I just cut my losses and used Jim’s old mirror glass in my mirror body. Hey, it goes with the condition of the car anyway. Worth a try but no go. Anyway, I may sell it or keep it, haven’t decided.
