What would be the correct outside mirror code for a 69 with an 02 D build.  Thank you.

I would think Dec 68 or Jan 69 would be good but could even have Feb 69 since it's 4th week IMO.

Paragon has a pretty good reproduction and they'll even date the glass!

My 02D Norwood Z/28 has its original D33 remote mirror (including the little drain slot), and it's dated "9 DMI 8" (September, 1968).

Is it typicial for the non-remote mirrors to be dated that early?  Also, have you ever seen a mirror with DCA & a little R in a circle right after the A between the numbers?

I have a 1968 Z28 with a build date of 07C and the mirror date is 7DMI8. That's close together!

From other thread:

Hi Ed -
   Wow!  Thanks for the detailed info and photos.  I had to go look at my mirror again after reading your post and yes there is a date code on mine (I never noticed it   Embarrassed ).  The code on mine is:
12-DMI-7
Based on your example above my date code translates to December 1967. Is that correct?
Paul   

Paul, your car is a 12D correct?

Thanks Paul, for some reason I thought yours was the same build as mine.

So then a February date would be OK in everyone's opinion?

I can't imagine how anyone could argue with a February-dated mirror on an 02D car.

Must have made the mirrors in batches; my Oct 68 10B Z has same date; 9DMI8

My 3E has a 10 - 68 (10 DMI 8 ) remote mirror on it, So maybe a date lag for remotes.
