Thanks for the advice, CJV, but I can't get DH to even change the oil on the car. The dealer wanted $350 for this mirror, (it's heated and remotely controlled, and doesn't come color matching,) but a guy we've had do work before quoted me $267. Of course, we have a $250 deductible! The part itself was something like $190.

I do yard work, even do what maintenance I can on the lawn mower and handle what I can on the house, but draw the line at working on cars. I have to figure this was a freak incident, unlikely to happen again, but if it does, I can live with that. A projectile coming through the windshield at 70 mph? Less so.
