My '70 bug has never had one on passenger side, but if that works for you I might try it.

Post Re: Door hinge pin
Sunday I installed the new side mirror. It sounds like and easy installation, but it was not. The kit does provide a template for the location to drill the hole in the door and that worked out fine. At that point all you need to do is place the backing nut inside and screw the mirror to it. Well the problem is that it's a long way up there from the access behind the door panel. There is no way any adult can reach up there and hold the nut and it's not possible the get a wrench in there. So what I did was use some JB Weld and attach a rod to the nut and held it up into the area behind the hole to screw on the mirror. When the nut began to turn the rod broke off and then the nut caught on something and began to tighten. So, not easy but can be done. Now I have a right side mirror that looks like it's factory.

Thanks again to you all and a special thanks to Dean for finding this solution.
