2. Cut the power line of the MAGNARP to be able to pull it out from the pipe. (Cut at both ends of the switch)
3. Cut the pipe. Besides the threaded part which goes inside the bulb socket you I will need approximate 5mm.
4. Cut M10 thread on the pipe’s end, and drill over the thread inside the main plate with M10 as well.
5. Bend the mirror’s fork as seen on the picture.
6. Mark the holes from the bent fork onto the main plate, and drill holes.
7. Make the electric work with a new switch. (I laced it inside the arm before doing so, but this is optional)
8. Cut out the shade for the arm. Don’t forget to reinforce it with something. (First time I missed this, and the paper was torn apart. That is why you may see some glue on the picture. I will cover it later with similar paper.)
9. Assemble as seen. You will have almost no space for the tools. But it is not impossible to make 😉
