'67 Mustang side mirrors

Driver's side mirror is loose, one of the screw holes is stripped. Any repair kits or tricks that you guys have used to fix this as opposed to putting another bigger screw in it with a bigger head that looks bad?

Actually, NPD sells a screw kit that should address the exact problem that you described. If yours are just the sheet metal screw type fasteners, you might try the oversize thread part (#1769-2K) that they offer for the '66 to remedy that problem. Call and ask them!

As you don't see the sheet metal under the mirror, I would use a thin blade screwdriver and with a hammer, tap from the outside edge of the hole inwards. This makes the hole smaller with a bur that would make the screw fit once again.
Or the above comment sounds like a good idea but make sure the gauge of the screw is larger but the head is the same as the old one.

That is exactly what this screw is. Once installed, you can't tell them from the original. My only question would be: Is the original '67 screw the same size and type as the '66? I used these on my own car ('66 GT Fastback) and have no issues.
