What diameter drill do I need to use for the threaded mirror inserts?
Are these inserts an interference fit?
I was pleasantly surprised to find that under the ols mirror is the big hole for the mirror adjustment knob.

Hey are those inserts rubber that would appear to expand as the screw is tightened?

The inserts appear to be steel.

They are usually stainless steel, and I think they are called Riv-Nuts. They are similar to the kind that they used to hold the Sport Slats to the body.

Eastwood sells a riv nut kit. I have them in both doors on my 68 for mirrors- a remore and a matching one for other side.
