Side Mirrors Not Staying Adjusted
I bought a new set of chrome side mirrors for my '71 a couple of years ago and since then they have loosened to the point in which wind alone would change their positions. The trick to keeping those mirrors adjusted is to get them set exactly where you want them then dab some red Loctite into the ball.sockets. Once the Loctite hardens in the socket it'll keep them adjusted until they get bumped hard enough to break the Loctite loose.
Loctite only hardens in the absence of air so you can dab some into the ball/socket then wipe off the excess with a Q-Tip or something similar. Blue Loctite will also work well but it isn't quite as strong as the red Loctite.
