As I remember there were washers that sat on the studs so that when you tighten the nuts it isn't pulling the mirror down against the door skin. Try that, if these washers are on the stud, even a stack of them, so when the mirror is set on the door these washers on the stud are resting on the door when you tighten the nut it will stop when the nut gets tight against the skin and not pull the body of the mirror pushing the door skin around it. You still need to have it hold the mirror tight so you will need to play a little to get the perfect amount of washers so the mirror is tight, but not leaving enough room for the nut to push up bending the skin of the door.
