06+ mirror hid a wire install

i know this may be the wrong thread but i know i had a lot of inquiries about this and i figured this would work. anyways here how i hid the wires and it was a pita but doable.


heres what it look like in the day i did a lil nightshade on it to make it blend in with the mirror.

first i drilled a big enough hole for the wire to go through

then you have to fold mirror in and drill another hole on the inside of the mirror part that slides with the base. you have to have another wire to feed through other side to pull light wire through.

Then on the inside mirror base part of mirror i had to drill another hole and ran wire through door and ran up to the front blinker light.

Yea, I had mine wired up to work only with the sognals, but I re-wired them like yours. Not sure which I like better.
