4th Gen Rear View Mirror!!

As you all know our cars came with "windshield mounted" Rear view mirrors. These are a pain in the A**. One thing I liked about my old Accord (94'). I'm really thinking about taking the rear view mirror stuff from a 5th Gen Lude or Accord and retrofitting it. Anyone ever seen this done??

What gave me the idea:

Can anyone help me identify what is wrong with this rear view connection? I'm just trying to determine if I need to buy some new parts. Thanks in advance.

Re: 4th Gen Rear View Mirror!!

So I hit up a junkyard and found a 92 Acura Legend with the same mirror setup. The mirror itself is designed to break away so I just pull it off. The hardware behind the mirror are 2 screws, one on the face of the mirror base and one smaller one on the opposite side. These screws will tighten the mirror in place. There is a spring behind a retaining clip that goes under the large screw. I simply took out the 2 screws and put the spring on, then the clip. Returned the screws together lightly and put it on the base on the windshield. Then tightened it in place. It was a farily easy fix, I was just missing the spring and retaining clip. Hope this helps you guys out.
