1995 SL2
1999 SL2
Default Power Mirror Conversion

Hello all,
I was pondering tonight: how hard would it be to convert my manual passenger window on my 1995 Sl2 to a power mirror? My 1994 Sl2 had power mirrors, but my 1995 Sl2 doesnt. It doesnt have power windows either, but has power locks. I like the crank windows, so was thinking about wiring up the small window toggle to a spot either in the bottom of the empty rectangular filler where the normal window switch is. But my question is, how hard is this to do? I would assume I need to run wires from the console through the dash and through the door to the mirror, but where would I tap into for power and such?
If it is no easy task, then I will have to just keep a stick in my car for adjusting for proper parallel parking...

Thanks for any advice,
Chris

For your reading pleasure

also, I never use the side mirrors for parallel parking and I parallel park frequently. Do you use it for determining distance to curb?

I do use it for parallel parking to see how far I am from the curb. I will have to find a junk yard car with the power mirror to get the wiring from.
