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.
