    Broken Side Mirror / Epoxy

    My drivers side mirror got torn off and broke the 3 plastic metal studs that bolt onto the frame. Has anyone had any luck with any epoxies that would be able to fasten the plastic bases to the mirror?

    TIA

    "Plastic metal?"

    Photo?

    If it's what I think it is, you should be able to make "forms" with tape or something, pour epoxy to recreate the standoffs and then drill out the hole for the mounting screws.

    its a well known brand, as usual surface preparation is probably very important
