Holy shit. Didn't realize the install was this involved. Screw this, not worth it at all to me. I don't even use my manual dimmer. Guess I'll be putting this autodim mirror up for sale.


All that work for a friggin' mirror. LOL!

Actually all that work is for auto headlamps, if all you want is the mirror to autodim you just need to get power to the mirror and ground it. Since you have an OHC already that's super easy! I could care less about the autodim mirror but the auto headlamps are very nice to have.
