    rearview mirror mount

    so, the base of my rearview has been jostling around in its mount connected to the base at the windshield for some time now and had been considering doing something about it, but this morning the entire mount came off with some glass attached to it. The windshield hasnt cracked yet, but i imagine the crucial word there is "yet". Should i just let it crack and replace it when i can? Or is there hope if a place like safelite was to epoxy that bit back into place?



    2002 Honda Accord sedan V6 (automatic slushbox)
    2 Rockford p3 12s (dual 2 ohm)
    Pioneer AVH-X4500bt (takes about a year to start playing music on the USB input)
    PPI PC275 running 1 sub atm, waiting to put the SQ 2200.1 back in and add the PhoenixGold Elite.4 once my electrical is up to snuff
    Stock front and rears (theyre actually squirrels listening to headphones that ive trained to sing what theyre hearing)

    I just added 5 SoundQubed stickers, and despite having no equipment upgrades, it added 76 DB!!!

    never ever attach it again, learn to drive without it or do a monitor and rear view camera. That sh*t will just fall down and break over and over again. Just say good bye to the mirror.

    that was the response i was fearing. its been a flippin mess for the last couple of years. I definitely want the glass repaired at the very least because its paper thin when it broke off right meow
