The usual next day delivery that I have come to expect from MX5 Parts.
This definately DOES fit a Mk2 with a SCREEN mounted mirror. I would advise "dry" fitting it first, Dropping the hood down makes it a little easier too. The screen mounting on my Mk2 has a stalk with two ball and socket swivels. Pass the cut out slot in the cover over the windscreen swivel first, then tilt the mirror down slightly and push the dimmer tab forward. Slide the cover onto the mirror making sure that he dimmer tab goes through the cut out square in the cover. Simple!
My kit came with an alchohol wipe and adheasive tape primer. Wip the back of the mirror down first with the wipe, then apply some of the primer to the mirror back. Peal off the stickiy tape backing and fir the mirror cover just like you have practiced in your dry run. It should take you just minutes to fit.
The cover looks to be nice quality and fits my mirror very well. It leaves a black rim round the edge of the mirror which looks good. It looks just right when fitted. I'm very pleased especially as I bought it on a Bank Holiday discount.
Thank again MX5 Parts.
