Question Signal Mirrors??

All,
I saw a Lesabre with Red Cadillac Deville style signals in the side view mirror. My car does have that. Was it an option? How do I get a pair? Will mirrors from another GM car fit the Lesabre?

I do believe Billboost made signal mirrors. Might want to try contacting him. I'll see if I can find the thread.

Here ya go. Dan..I'll toss it in GH as well

LED pods were from an 2004 Cadillac DTS.
Mirrors were found on Century/Regal.

I found that the mirrors with straight lines going up and down them were much easier to use/mod the heater than the other zigzag version

Upon trying to peel the heater in the zigzag, I found that the coating holding it to the mirror would have spots where it no longer covered. Illuminating the LED'* would show the areas where the coating had peeled. It looked bad up close. Looking for a method of making holes w/o lifting the heater, I came across a set of leather punches. They don't actually cut, so I used a torch to heat the end and melt the heater with the end. This gave me perfect circles. Cleaned the goop from the circles and illuminated, perfect.

Gooped the backing onto the mirror, the final product is ready to be put into the car.
