June 10, 2010What tool should I use to get a square hole put into the door of my 1990 Bronco (see picture please)?

June 10, 2010does the mirror go into the door? Or does it mount to the side and you just need to run the wire into the door?
June 10, 2010It mounts on the outside with 2 screws but also has a rod (look closely to the left on the picture) of some kind that gets mounted inside the door. This part cannot be removed from the mirror either.
June 10, 2010If you have a decent depth into the inside of the door, I would drill holes at 2 corners of the square. Then a fine toothed metal blade on a jig saw.
Use some blue tape to mask off the area around the cut, it`ll save you from scratches from the base of the jig saw.
There`s nothing more American than a guy that can build an aircraft carrier in his garage over the weekend.
June 10, 2010Ok. How about a rotary tool? Do they even make metal cutting bits for those?
June 10, 2010might be a little neater the way toolman says...
June 11, 2010Thanks everyone I got them mounted. However, I only needed to drill 2 holes diagonally from each other. I also had to trim off about an inch of the bracket that gets mounted inside the passenger`s side door. Not sure why the driver`s side didn`t need it and the passenger`s side did. I guess I could have just cut them both off completely since I won`t be mounting the mount that goes in the door. I`m gonna enjoy this upgrade. But first I have to figure out how to get power to the mirrors and what switch to get. I thought of using a 1987-1993 Mustang power mirror switch and mount it to the Bronco`s center console. ANY suggestions?
