    I have (2) 9832126 gaskets that came with a set of mirrors i bought . So i will assume the pin for the driver side goes to front of car and thick part is up. This will make the pin for the pass. side go to rear of car that will put the thick part up. Is this correct? i have to drill the pass side door skin. Thanks

    Do a search before you do any drilling.
    I've heard the measurements for the holes differ slightly between the driver and passenger sides.

    You should also use a backing plate for the screws as the skin of the door isn't quite sturdy enough to hold the screws long-term.

    Good Luck!

    I just drilled mine the other day. I put mine in the same locations. I found some threads in the archives with pics of early cars confirming the same locations. Others have said they are slightly different. I have some pics in the video for reference with what I did. They are at the 10 min mark. I hope it helps. Also like Terry said, you definitely need a backing plate.
