Small Bit Of Info Please - Rear View Mirror

Hi All
        Well Just getting the old girl fettled at the minute for the dreaded NCT on Friday. The engine headgasket has been changed along with belts and pump. She is going very well ...
 
The Rear View mirror needs to be affixed to the screen - What distance down from the top of the screen should the mounting button be bonded ? I know its generally centre mounted and we all have the encapsulated Ariel for guidance !
 
If one of yous could give me a measurement in inches or mm id really appreciate it !!
 
Now where's the rest of that list .....!!
 
Thanks in Advance

    The top of the sticky disc is 5 inches below the bottom edge of the windscreen seal.

    Just in case you're having trouble getting it fixed on....I found that Porsche GB were unable to supply the sticky disc, so decided to just stick the old one back on. In the end I successfully used Loctite AA319. A proprietary pad from an accessory shop didn't work, and some online reviews of the Loctite said it was no good, but as usual it's important to meticulously clean and de grease everything.
     
    It's still on!!

    Thanks a Million for your replies ... I am bringing some isopropanol from work tonight to get it all cleaned up and I also have armed myself with Loctite AA319.. ! Failing that I have an acquaintance who works for Autoglass who will bond it .... You need a back up plan.... 5 inches is the measurement and try not to get all the glue on your hands !!
     
    You know all this tinkering is a good way to unwind
     
    Thanks again Lads !!
