I really wish I could have done the same thing. The upper mirror bolts would have come through the inside above the dashboard and the lowers would have been somewhere under the dashboard where no man, woman or child could have found them.
I don't understand why ( I do, actually, they're cheap) manufacturers put a heavy mirror on with 4 inch and a half number 14 wood screws. Not even stainless steel. They should have a metal plate with welded nuts on it backing these things up. More cheap shortcuts by the manufacturers.
