@  Mckinney_Tx : (05 February 2016 - 08:54 PM) hell i aint
@  Dylan214 : (05 February 2016 - 05:27 PM) Yeah its more of the I dont want to lose the info, and not have anyone use the site. Yes FB is great! but when were having huge topics about stuff We can't archive it if its important.
@  borgwarrior : (05 February 2016 - 09:06 AM) but we are still here, no matter what. :)
@  sgtmyers88 : (04 February 2016 - 07:54 PM) Yeah my original intent for the FB page was just to be a check in page to keep in touch if the main sight/firum goes down again.. It kinda evolved on its own from there..
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:25 AM) Hyper, I would love to take "more roll" or even purchase site and make it great/ better then before. This being said I am going to keep that in mind for the app bc I am still learning that. I am a IT Security/Networking guy. I do Websites etc on the sites but mostly Whitehat stuff.
@  Hyper4fx : (04 February 2016 - 09:22 AM) I can agree with you there friend... I could even make a phone app. It can be active forum... but like you said .... With the right People.
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:07 AM) I want to restore the forum and I believe it can be done, But we gotta think, Do we have the right ppl for the job? YEs we do, there def alot of things we could do and etc but it all depends on who wants to grab the bull by the horns and thats me I want to make this site the ALL in one.
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:04 AM) I understand where yalls are coming from, But you dont want to lose the traffic and etc for the Forum. The FB page doesnt allow you to keep backups , no archiving, and no searchability, Now look I understand ppl use fb easier then this forum but I wouldnt just drive all the traffic to that page.
@  Hyper4fx : (04 February 2016 - 09:01 AM) FB will always be more active and responsive then this Forum..... just sayin. The forum is okay for looking up stuff.. But FB is real time interaction... I started a Dodge Stratus FB Tribute page 4 years ago when this forum lost it's momentum. It pretty active with over 1300 users. Then we started up the FB Group.. and I redirected all traffic from the page to the new group.... Your Welcome.
@  Stratuscaster : (03 February 2016 - 10:05 PM) I'd post in both AND in the forums - only way we can get them active again...
@  rustbucketbingo : (02 February 2016 - 10:48 AM) Sweet thanks man.

I have a 2000 Cirrus with non-heated powered mirrors. My driver's side mirror got sheared off, so I'm trying to find a replacement. I can find plenty of manuals, and plenty of powered HEATED mirrors.

From what I understand, the difference between heated and non-heated is that the heated have an additional two wires for the heating elements, and of course this means a different connector.

My thinking is that I could get a heated mirror, cut off the connector, and figure out which of the two wires are for the heating elements, and cut those back. Use the old connector from my broken mirror, and I should be all set.

Does this sound reasonable? If so, does anyone have an idea how hard it'd be? I figure it shouldn't be all that hard with a multimeter and a little probing around.

Otherwise - anyone have a source for NON-HEATED powered mirrors? From what I've found so far, aftermarket only makes heated powered, and the salvage yards I've checked with only have broken mirrors.

I don't know much about heated mirrors but i know that you should be able to figure it out and the installation should be simple and it has to be a easy electrical thing. i think heated mirrors would come in handy after a frost or freeze never knoe when those come arround... id keep goin with the heated mirrors and try to figure it out... it would be a nice lil addition :naughty:
