I noticed that too. My chrome ( well, what used to be chrome ) is way thinner than that, but my car is a 74 so that could have changed.

As long as we are picking on it ...................

Why oh why, would the seller have not thrown a $65 dash cap on that dried out, cracked up pad?

But there IS a control on the inside of the door for the nonexistent mirror. Maybe it's an invisible mirror...
