Clear RTV silicone.
Mark the position on the out side of the windshield with sharpie.
Clean the inside with a razor.
Wipe window with Acetone or Alcohol.
Lightly sand the mirror slug, and clean with a wipe of Acetone or Alcohol.
Open the tip of the RTV (don't use the applicator nozzle.).
Place a medium dab of Silicone to the Back of the Mirror Slug.
Press the mirror slug firmly against the glass so that the Silicone evenly oozes out on all sides and
the Slug is firmly against the glass. Quickly wipe off excess to prevent dripping.
Cover the slug with Masking tape in a X pattern to hold the position on the glass.
Leave the tape on for 24 hours, then remount the mirror.
I don't use that rear view mirror crap as you don't know how long it has been on the shelf.
Silicone will hold an Aquarium together it will hold the mirror, and take vibration better.

Nice work man, I for one like it. I love the turn signals. If it weren't for the cops around here I'd shave the bumper on my MK1 but I'd probably get pulled over and harassed so I may go for a clipper kit or something similar.
