1967 Mustang Coupe remote mirror control location.

Just wondering whether someone who has a 67 Mustang coupe with a remote operated drivers side mirror may be able to say yes or no to the location of the knob on the trim panel. The car did not originally have one but the trunk of parts with the car included a remote mirror. It is missing the round bezel nut so its back to the lathe to make one from aluminium.
Any help appreciated. Dan twolakes may have an idea being the interior pro.
Thanks.

Sorry, I can't help you with this one, but let's put this in General Rodding Tech also. There might be more help there. You also might want to PM red65mustang, he might be able to help.

Thanks for taking the time to check that. I will go ahead and fit the remote control to that spot.
Could i ask you to do me a favour and upload a picture of the remote control round nut that locks the remote knob in place. I have to make one as there is no round bezel nut or washer with the mirror. I have got the threads per inch as 20 as shown in the picture, so i can set my metal lathe up to cut the thread but a picture would show me what shape i need to make it. Hope you can help once again.
Cheers from Al, downunda.

Bezel nut.

Thanks for taking the pics and uploading. Good shots which i can copy the shape from.I will make them from half inch al. plate and polish then finish with two pack clear coat. As i am setting the lathe up to make one it would be easy to make an extra if you need one.
Thanks once again. Thats one mean camaro.
Cheers from downunda.

The illusive bezel nut.

That would be quicker than making one. Then again i am on the other side of the world. But if you would like to sell it i would buy it from you.
Cheers
Al.

reinforcing plate

some cars came with a metal reinforcing plate behind the panel. I think the punch also was contoured so a locking tab would keep the control from rotating.

Remote mirror panel.

Hi there timothale. That makes sense because where the location point is marked on the panel there is nothing to capture the spindle and locking washer as you say. I will have to make something there to grab it either on the panel or steel door surface.
Thanks for that time-saver tip. i can see what would have happened without a small fix.
Cheers.
Al.

Thanks andy and tim for helping me out with this pesky nut. Took a couple of hrs on the lathe to cut the thread for a dummy spindle and less time to make the nut itself, but there you go. A combined USA and AUS effort to make a nut.
Look out scott drake.And unlike stang parts made in taiwan this one fitted first time without any mod or remake.
Thanks once again
Cheers
Al.

reinforcing plate

Most of the time those small pieces are used by several different big cars , intermediate and sometimes other makes. The same compannies make pieces for who ever wants to buy them. The California Special emblems used on the rear quarter panels of the mustang were actually a buick part that Ford bought. The van swivel seat mechanism were chrysler-dodge parts.
