Default Speed Glas + Rear View?

Just curious to how you guys running speed glass/lexan are mounting your rear view mirrors if at all....just curious if you can glue then like they are to the factory glass or if you have to make something to mount them too...please let me know...

I just left mine off. I didn't really need it anymore and it's a few more ounces out of the car.

If you happen to have a cage, mount it off the front cross bar. Could drop headliner and make a mount that holds it that protrudes out and then down...would probably be a bit shakey though.

If you have to have it, I'd mount it to the cross bar in the cage.. tab off that is easy enough to do. The lexan probably would crack with time if you drill a hole in it to hold the mirror on, and I don't think glue would hold it.. the glass shakes a little too much and the glue joint would likely fail quickly.
