About 2 1/8" center of hole to center of hole. Both my M38s have those welded on. Welded right through the screw holes to the windshield frame.
Funny I was just looking at it 10 minutes ago. If they had been screwed on I thought I had a good place for a rearview mirror to mount to without altering anything. _________________ 1952 Dodge M37, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car Undergoing factory original restoration, 1944 WC-51 Weapons , (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators
I like your magnet approach. No new holes is a requirement! Also you don't want it showing? Stow it in the glove box as you say. Even better (for me) is when the 50cal is mounted I can move the mirror further to the right to still have a useful second mirror.
maybe a real thin sheet of Mylar on the magnet to stop scuffing the paint?
What magnet did you use? I like that is seems to have had a mounting bolt or hole.
I have a NOS GPA mirror I have been saving for something like this and with the magnetic base I can l keep taking it with me from vehicle to vehicle. _________________ 1952 Dodge M37, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car Undergoing factory original restoration, 1944 WC-51 Weapons , (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators
Yup, the magnet sits in a chrome steel cup with a hole through the center. I can't remember if the hook was riveted in or had a nut on it. Either easily removed. I might've had to enlarge the hole a bit to mount my mirror arm into it. Also had to scuff the chrome to get paint to stick.
I experimented with a thin piece of felt over the magnet to keep from scuffing the paint but it made the magnetic connection a shade too slippery for me. Still messing with a solution in my spare time.

I found mine at my local hardware store and farm supply store. Both places had all sorts of them. They're nickel plated so I blasted them a bit then painted them. Mine are 2 1/8. _________________ 1952 M-38 # 53623 - 2-52. M 416 trailer.
