Both sides flop around. Stretched cable? Anyone fixed this?

The cables had pulled out of the mirror backing on mine, was already like it when I got the car.

No, I stuck some small diameter rubber tubing at the corners to keep the glass from moving, I'm not sure how I'd be able to fix it. I have a set of sport mirrors from my '81 I plan on using, or retrofitting a set of power mirrors from a later El Camino on.

I did some looking last night, one of the cables is broke right at the mirror. Oh well, I'll look onto something else.
