Rear view mirrors are one of my pet hates- most of those lovely bullet style mirrors are held on with self-tapping screws through the sheet metal, and some kind of plastic plinth. Like ours were:

I hate the way they vibrate and wobble about. So I threw away the plastic plinth and made up a proper aluminium one, held on by machine screws into a reinforcing plate inside the door.

…then I disguised it with the shell of the old plastic plinth. Madness.

The grille still needs to be painted to match the roof, but I’ll get around to that sometime. For now, it’s time to add all the fluids and prepare for a first startup.
