Repairing 67 remote driver's door mirror

I bought an aftermarket mirror for the interim, while trying to fix my original remote mirror. It has already broken, sigh. I finally bought a new round mirror glass and broke out the old mirror today. I have all three brass wire ends, thank god. I have looked all around and can't find replacements, has anyone fixed theirs and have a solution to re-working the old pieces or a place to buy 3 new ones. They are rounded to fit in the mirror backing on one half and then crimped closed on the wire cables. I have gotten one of them re-open by tapping the crimped part. Not so on the others though. I don't think I can drill out a new hole, too small.

Not sure if anyone can remake new ones or some shop that can do that?

thanks for any help

Michael - Welcome to Team Camaro. Drop by the Welcome Wagon and introduce yourself and your car.

How did the aftermarket mirror break - cable or glass?

We have quite a few mirror restoration posts in the archives but I didn't see any repairing remote cables.
Lots of repairing or tightening manual mirrors, or gluing new glass on top of old broken glass, or removing glass.
That doesn't mean it hasn't been done but it may take a few days to get the right response and advice.

You can buy a used mirror for parts or you can pry open the cable ends swap out the parts and re-sodder the cable ends back in place. You can't purchase individual mirror pieces. If you get a newer used mirror with a longer cable, route the cable clear of everything inside the door and hold it in place with Velcro.

I got an OER remote mirror and it was broken right out of the box with those soldered ends coming off the mirror glass base, I'll have to spend a couple of hours on it trying to see if I can get a hook into the little holes in the base and solder the wires to the base.
