Hello forum. I want to mount sport mirrors on my car. On which side of the door does the ferule go??
From the inside and up? Or from the outside and down?

My thinking is, if it is from outside down…nothing is really holding the mirror down to the door…..

Ford used a 'nutsert' to mount mirrors and other exterior items. It takes the correct size ferule and a special tool. Nutsert is inserted into the hole from the top and, using the tool,  pinch or collapse the nutsert on to the metal

Ok…are these nutserts and tool available? Or are equivalents available?
I have a Scott Drake mounting kit, but the inserts are soft rubber…that wont hold much….

I bought mine at Harbor Freight.  Came with an assortment of nutserts.
