Once I started working on my Celica I was surprised by the lack of aftermarket support especially when it came to my floppy mirrors, you'd think that something so critical would have a replacement part.
So after searching the forums and finding a few fixes that seemed to take a bit too much work I decided to just remake the original. Using SolidWorks and an Anycubic Mono X resin printer I think I have made something that works (needs a long term test)

Here is the original piece, a partial thread rod that allows for the mirror to be pushed in by slipping past the threads. This was the hardest thing to model took a few hours to get it to look like the original.

Here is the printed part, it is much stronger than the original, but I'm still not sure how long that the threads will last.

The other part is because I didn't want to have to buy the glass so I cut the original out instead and it is to hold it in.

The top plate piece is glued on with 5 min epoxy the repair is almost finished, all that's left is to line them up and press the assembly into place.

When I get some time I'll put the SLDPT file and the STL up for you guys that want to try it out, so far it works fairly well seeing as I don't have a baseline for how it worked new.

Hey that's a solid idea. Remember though that there are 2 versions of the mirrors in our cars, and this is a fix for the style without a screw in the bottom.
More info (and some rebuilding info from me) here: Side View Mirror Repairs

Ah, forgot that there was a change this was for my 83. Here is a google drive link to the STL's and the SLDPRT files. Celica - Google Drive
