Power folding heated mirrors

So today I picked up a set of power folding mirror with switch and relay. I picked up the wrong relay and got the DC2 relay instead :face:. Technically, I can use the DC2 relay (5 pin) to complete the install, but to make the install as close to OEM as possible, I'm gonna go back and switch the DC2 relay for the correct relay (4 pin) :mam:. All for $175 from H-Motors Online (they're local).

Gonna do the install and retain the heated mirror feature on USDM/CDM RSX's. The trick is finding how to mount the heated mirror switch. Full DIY guide w/pics to follow. Probably won't be done until for another couple of weeks due to the holidays, and 'shiet.

Also picked up a set of In-box brand new Honda Access window visors for $150.00 as an added bonus and will write up a DIY install guide for it too.

Lots of DIY guide in the pipeline for December, including EDM rear fog light using the Fit fog light switch (base on gslowr's write-up) and side markers (yet another side marker install). :beerchug:

im planning to do this as well.. but i have a different option and i dont know even know how to do it.. :D

  1. buy jdm mirrors
  2. install like OEM (clean) :)
  3. install heated mirrors (i know... i have an 02 :() (can buy mirrors for '06 RSX 76253-S6M-C41 = Left & 76203-S6M-C41 = Right)
  4. swap the housings
  5. NO switches will be use (folding mirrors switch to ignition & heated mirrors switch to defroster)

the question is.. is it possible? is it safe? :dontknow:
for those who will attempt to do DIY OEM install on your 02-03... i have spare BNIB connectors for sale (bought it by mistake) see link..
