    Default The Strangest Thing Just Happend..

    Dont really know what to make of this...

    Just been out to wash the wheels and windows on my Vec-C. Wheels came up a treat, so started on the windows. No problem there either.

    Went to wipe the wing mirrors, and the passenger side mirror pane came off in my hand.. Ok, not a problem i can stick that back on.

    Went to wipe the driver wing mirror and the exact same thing happend! Coincedince?

    So, what is the best way to get these stuck back in place please?

    If it is just a chance in a million, i think ill get a couple of lines on the lotto tonight!
