The last of the shows will soon be only digital pictures and fond memories. If you are getting your Bolt ready for some last cruises, or just thinking about putting her up for winter, be sure to check out what parts you need from American Classic Truck Parts. They still offer a 10% discount to Stovebolters.
There are no factory holes or markings for the inside rear-view mirror in 54/55. I'll look tomorrow in the accessory installation manual to see if there is a template or measurements for the location holes.
I cannot find a template or instructions for installing the 54/55 interior mirror.
Here is what I have done on two trucks:
- With the windshield and headliner installed, position the mirror arm above the windshield, above/adacent-to the windshield seal, above the middle of the window. - Marked the two hole locations. - Drill through the headliner and the first layer of sheet metal. - Attach the mirror arm (two screws).
I have a cab stripped and could post a photo, so that you can see what you would be drilling through (just ask).

Use a sharp bit so you don't have to push hard. If you do you're likely to go too far and put a dimple on the roof panel. Along the same line don't use screws that are too long or you risk dimpling the roof that way as well.
