Bought some mirror glass - Wrong size :(

Hey all, I got given a good contact regarding some replacement mirror glass for my ayy11, the guy was really good, really quick, but the glass is the wrong size.

Can anyone with a Aus delivered AW11 have a look at the attached picture and tell me if their mirror glass is shaped like the bottom (new glass) or the top (my JDM '87 glass)?


I guess there's also the potential that I have been given SW20 mirror glass, but I thought they were even more rounded than the mk1.

All the best everyone.

    I dont know about the AW11 but that definitely isn't an SW20 mirror.
     
    Why don't you just take your mirror to a glazier and get them to cut it? Should be cheap enough.

    Because I already paid for something that should have been correct and don't want to pay again.

    Seller will need to replace, I just need to make sure I've not provided them any inconsistent or incorrect information.

    Ry, what measurement do you have? This is a replacement unit - measurement from Google search.
    Height: 3 1/2"; Width: 6 9/16"; Diagonal: 7 1/16"

    Then there is this one, which looks to have more rounded corners.
    Height 3 1/2" x Width 6 1/16", Diagonal
    6 13/16".

    So, crisis averted.

    Apparently the JDM 87 has the same mirror glass as the 87 Celica.

    Whereas the Aus and UK 87 MR2 have this angular mirror glass.

    Glazier is shipping new glass out tomorrow.

    Fingers crossed.
