I tried some no name brand that came in one of those rear view mirror installation kits for 3 bucks or something at the auto parts store; however, it worked like poopoo. I used Loctite to fix my heater cable clips and it held really well, so that's why I went back to it for the second round of the fight --- which after 5 days and about 500 bouncy miles all is well.

Good luck, your second attempt followed the exact same process I did (I held the button in place with pressure for about 90 seconds), maybe it's the product?

OA vendor --- any advice here?

So, quick update:

I used Gorilla Glue last night, after sanding with 200 grit sand paper, and cleaning the windshield with rubbing alcohol. Went to mount the mirror this morning, and lo and behold, it stayed up just fine!!! However, now, it would appear as if the fiancee's cat decided the screw that goes into the base would be a fun toy, and it's God knows where in the house now. Luckily, it's a part that can be ordered through Chrysler for $3.60. I'm sure I could also just head over to the hardware store and find a replacement. The issues with this damn mirror have become almost comical at this point, but I'm happy to say that I think all will be well once I get the replacement screw in.

Moral of the story? Windshield adhesive kits don't seem to work great on the OA material, but your standard run of the mill Loctite or Gorilla Glue super glues seem to work great. Again, to reiterate, I'm incredibly happy with the product, and would do business with OA again!

We have the hard coated flat sheet material you need in various sizes just give us a call. 573-317-9066 Yes you can cut the window material with a jig saw or band saw, after they are trimmed they can then be drilled and bolted into position.
