1. What we claim, Daniel L. Motley and Jennifer M. Motley, is the invention called the “Auto Mirror Protector Cover”. It is a simple cover to fit the outside mirror housing, protecting it from bad weather such as frost, dew, ice, and snow. It will also protect is from birds. Some birds seem to look at there reflection in the mirror. Maybe a mating ritual? When doing so they tend to make a mess while pecking on the mirror and crapping on the door!

    What this product is, is just a simple idea that is designed to protect the outside mirror of any automobile. A cover made of plastic that fits the front of the mirror like a lid on a bowl. The cover has a groove on the outside edge to fit the outer edges of the mirror housing.

    Features And Benefits: The product is easy to install and remove. It cab be stored in in glove box or console. The automobiles logo can be engraved in plastic. This will also enhance the look of the automobile. Someone that takes his/her classic auto to an auto show could put my product on there automobile to dress it up. The Judges will take notice! You can put anything on the front of the cover, from rock and roll to religion. The main benefits of putting a mirror cover on your automobile is to protect your mirrors from weather such as frost, dew, ice, and snow. It can also be protected from native birds. The Virginia Cardinal is bad for pecking our mirrors during spring. The Cardinal looks at his reflection while crapping on the door. A mirror cover will look way better then a plastic bag over your mirror. There's nothing on the market at the present time to solve this problem! The Covers could also be of a tinted type cover so they could stay on there all of the time. This would be a big benefit while driving east late in the evening just before the sun set when the sun is behind you glaring in the mirror and blinding you, making driving dangerous and the mirror useless. How much would it cost to make these covers when they could be made of plastic? That's right very little. What kind of profit could be made? A lot of the most common mirrors of all time is found on all the GM automobiles, from 1970 to 1987. Examples are Camaro, Corvette, Pontiac Trans Am, Firebird, Chevelle, Malibu, El Camino, Monte Carlo, Nova, Impala, Pontiac Lamans GTO, Grandprix, Ventura, Catalina, Oldsmobile Cutlass, GTS, and 442. Covers for headlights, tailights, and tags have been done. The outside mirrors have been overlooked and is way overdue for a change of some kind. I really feel it should be covered
