    • I have the same hubcaps but with a red stripe. The chrome looks better with your color though. Mine is silver.
    • and 103west 43rd st.. thanks for the details on your conversion.. Very nice job.... too bad it's beyond me to do that..
      I will hire you to mod mine though.. let me know if you'de like to earn some side ca$h.. thanks Jim
      thanks again for your insite on the euro mirror mods..
      good job!
    • Zepper... have you had any luck in locating from the French?? the Euro Mirrors for our transit connect that are built for out USA driving lanes?? thanks.. Jim
    • Jim, my pleasure to give you more details.
      It starts with the fact that all out side mirrors will bend toward the door if hit with some force.
      They are designed to protect pedestrians.
      The top larger mirror flat is adjustable, the bottom smaller convex mirror is not.Since I needed to move the mirror angle closer to the door, I first gave it a shove and adjusted it so the view of the bottom convex mirror was where I wanted.
      There are then two ways to proceed.
      You can fix the mirror in the new position and loose the safety movement ability (the easy way), or, you can modify the swivel joint between the mirror assembly and the mount on the door (much harder).
      I first tried the easy way.
      Look under the joint. You will see a circular cover plate. it has two slots 180 degrees apart. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver to release the plate and pull it down and off. Use the slot that is closest to the door.
      The joint is held together with three screws. After moving the mirror to its new position, drill two starter holes between any two of the screws and screw in sheet metal screws to lock the joint in place. Snap the cover plate back in place and you are done. Should take 15 minutes.
      I left the mirror like that for a few weeks, but to lose the safety factor bothered me so I finally went with the hard way.
      Take the cover plate off and remove the three screws holding the two assemblies together.
      You will then see that when the mirror assembly swivels it acctually moves up on two small ramps built into the joint on the lower section.
      Using a Dremel cuting wheel, I cut a small portion of the ramps away, only about an eighth of an inch, this allows the mirror to be re-assembled in the new position perserving the safety ability. Instead of just drilling new holes and using machine screws to put it back together, I noticed the mirror assembly portion of the joint has more than three tapped holes for assembly. I then drilled three new holes in the bottom joint, all an eight inch on center from the existing holes to match up with the new position of the top(mirror) joint. The existing machine screws could now be reused.
      Take care, and good luck.
    • that looks just like a Kia Soul.... \Im not a fan..
      I may go for the new regular transits being built here for the USA next year or so...
    • 103west..... can you please show us HOW TO.. how did you 'change the mounting angle'??
      Im going to do this too.. my mirrors are just too darn small...
      Did you use a wedge? or shims?? thanks...
    • Correct. That is why I added the ScanGauge.
    • But this is once and done, correct? You can't have a continuous readout.
    • It comes packed with the jack and tools. You can also order it from Ford if you need more than one, although Ford is supplying them in black if ordered.
    • Can you tell me anything about the tow point / front ring? Where did you get it? Thanks!
