I am happy to report that I put the 73 XJ6 to bed yesterday for the winter.
I was having trouble finding a safe, clean, reasonable storage space for it. And the snow has begun in Northeast Pennsylvania, USA. Fortunately, a kindly neighbor offered to let me use the unused space in her two car garage.
I decided to back the car into the space, which allowed me to park it close to the outside wall, maximized the space between the two cars. In backing the car in, I realized how much I miss having a passenger side rear view mirror.
Unlike my 71 XJ6, which has a simple flat mirror housing, this unit, which is adjustable from inside the car, has a large, bolbus semi-circular housing which is all chrome: A little bit much in my humble opinion.
I don’t need an inside adjustable mirror on the passenger side, but I would like one that matches the existing., Did Jaguar offer a matching passenger side mirror? How realistic would it be to seek one from a junkyard in a county where the driver was on the right?
