I agree, I think a simple 1 peice design with no folding mech would be the way to go. less moving parts. and keep arm at the bottom, not the top. To get a smaller mirrror housing though, we would have to remove the motor and make it manuel. I think most people would like to be able to adjust with the motor though.
This sounds great to me. No need to adjust the mirrors by motor. Manual would be just fine.

I would only ask that you consider designing a “weak point” in the arm so that if the mirror gets hit the arm breaks and saves the door / mount which would be a significantly more expensive problem to fix.

@designbybeau maybe incorporate a poll of those who showed interest on the non folding idea , a 1 piece would also be stronger while keeping the motor to move mirror around .

I prefer the 1 piece design but would prefer a side mount stem. I love your current mirror housing design!

I am an observer only here. But @designbybeau - This last design is gorgeous! If you end up going this route I will be very jealous of all of those that buy these! This is a homerun design. You are extremely talented. Keep it up!

I wish I could. With another baby on the way, if I did, I may just be sleeping in the 4c and the seats don't recline! This is one design I find beautiful. I've not commented in this thread intentionally because I figure my input is irrelevant, but after seeing everyone throw around dozens of suggestions when there can only be one, I thought I could at least tell you all what would make me jealous. (Besides, my first cosmetic upgrade will be this leather console some guy on here makes. Perhaps you've seen it ;)) Trying to balance real family life, like the two more sets of braces coming my kids' way within three months, and two other expensive passions isn't easy. First world problems I guess.

I like this design the best, although the other one was attractive and I wouldn't have regretted have it. I received my engine cover from Beau today ,it looks even better in person, it's perfect, worth every dollar.

Is the last design including motors or would they be manual adjustment?
