Hi Anders,

Congrats on passing the inspection on your Bird! As for mirrors, what you might want to do is buy the 1960 inside day/night rear view mirror. The location of those outside mirrors leave a lot to be desired in usefulness. I have the type shown in the picture below and it is not of much use. I think your Bird has the standard '59 rear view mirror on it, if I remember right from pictures of it. The '60 rear view mirror is much wider, giving you excellent rear viewing. And VTCI accepts it for judging, as I recall, because it is considered a safety improvement for the car. You can buy it at most Tbird parts places, I am sure. I got mine from Bird Nest for about $70 and like it very much.

Yeah.. I like the 58-59 better than the 60 mirror (pictured below) but they're all very cool styling !

Well done Anders, your hard work and perseverence paid off. Enjoy! I still think you should fly the members of this site over to your place for a garage working bee, we'd have that sucker up in no time at all - can't have your legal 'Bird sitting outside in the snow.

Thanks guys
Looking at the pic with the 60 mirror, the sticker in the windshield remind me that I have, not the same, but one sticker, that I like to know about.
On a "Registration renewal reciept", there was one, in a size like a credit card, that is gone, but there is still a small sticker, or decal left. Its in silver colour and the text say: VOID. What is that for, and what does it mean?

Most likely a parking lot permit... Void after a certain date.
