Nicely done! How in the world did you do this? I am not following your footsteps, but I am real curious. Looks like relays and a controller?

By the way, I dig that hood.

Folding mirror retrofit

HERE'S THE PARTS LIST

5) SPDT 12V Relay with harness
Extra Wires
Wire connector or Heat shrink tube

TAPPING LOCATION

(+12V tap) into the fuse box inside the glob box in anyone of the empty fuse slots with a fuse the power is on top and also put a fuse on that direct wire to the relays from the (+12V) and also I put a shut off switch that's just if I don't want to used the folding mirror feature all the time
