Second attempt this evening at re-attaching the rear view mirror to the PTSD, which threw a hissy fit and fell off when I attached a rear view mirror dash cam module to it.
Attempt #1 at the weekend epic fail. Bought the appropriate Loctite kit, drew a nice little outline on the outside of the screen of the original location, cleaned off as much as poss, and set to work putting the kit into action. Smear fishy smelling substance over mirror mount and smooth it out - check; cut out 'activation mesh' so it was the same shape as mount - check; prodded and poked so the glue came through the mesh - check; line up mirror to outline and hold it for a minute - check. Dropped straight off. Now I had a sticky mess on my windscreen and no rear view mirror.
Streetshite-d it to Halfrauds to buy a comedy temporary rear view mirror and another Loctite kit - the temp mirror was because I needed to give the PTSD a run in the countryside due to lack of use.
Bought some isopropanol yesterday - delivered this morning (eBay as well - not bad). Cleaned off the mount and the windscreen. Difference this time - er, actually unscrewing the mirror from the mount. What A Twat I Am.
Anyway, 2 minutes in and the mirror-less mount is still holding steady. Not gonna reattach the business end until tomoz
FFS - went to reattach the mirror, all looking good, tightened up the screw holding the mirror to the mount. Whole thing dropped off again.
Any bright ideas anyone - this was the 'so-called' stuff for the job I used:
