Mirror Clock Mod

By Tim "Chevysabre" Mills

This mod was first done by Steve Lee on the Shadow Zone website.  I Emailed Steve to be sure that it was OK to try and have this put on the tech and mods page of The Sabre Group Website.

  1. First I went out and bought a cheap watch at Wal-Mart.  I checked it out and it didn’t seem to be to difficult to pull it apart..
     
  2. Make sure that the clock is set to make it easier for you. Then I proceeded to take the back of the watch off. (You must use a very small screwdriver to get this off).  Once that was accomplished I pushed the guts of the watch out through the back of the watch so it looked like this.
     
  3. Then I took the mirror itself apart.  This can be accomplished by using a screwdriver to pry the rubber out with the mirror in it (The mirror is inset into the rubber which holds the mirror in place).  Use caution as the mirror will be under quite a bit of pressure and will break if not careful.
     
  4. I then figured out where the clock should be located.  This location worked very well.  I laid the watch face on the mirror and drew the outline of it on the back of the mirror.  Then I used a ruler to mark a rectangle that is1/2 in X 7/8 in.  This is the area in which you will scratch off.  I used a razor blade to scratch the coating off. Once you get most of it you can use a pencil eraser to remove the small stuff. ( This step takes a little time and elbow grease).
     
  5. This is what your mirror should like  when you get everything scratched off of it.
     
  6. Now you can place your watch face on the back of the glass and line it up so it looks pretty close.  I used a piece of tape to hold the clock in place for the time being.  Once you put the mirror back in the rubber that is what holds the clock in place.  With the mirror back in the rubber you can manipulate the clock a little so that it lines up perfectly.  This is what your mirror should look like now.
     
  7. Now just carefully put the rubber piece with the mirror in it back into the mirror housing and your ready to reinstall on your bike.  No more being late for supper!!!!!
     

This mod took a little under 30 minutes to do because I took my time so I wouldn’t break anything.  It looks great and works great.  The best part is it was only $6.43.  If only everything we did was so cheap…….
