Many have asked, the mirror base is wedge-shaped to pitch the mirror properly.
The Impala originally had large, flat-topped rib starting on the header panel and running up the hood. We are building a custom hood for this car, and the customer didn’t want that flattened rib, so we reshaped the header to come to a peak to match the new hood design.
After some cutting and reshaping, the header now has the pointy peak.
