I'll bet you will find that there is a shoulder on the post that will limit the amount of threads that you can cut on it. This effectively will allow a nut to be installed only as far as the existing push nut can presently be installed. Removing the post and cutting the shoulder down is an option.....but all that work for a mirror that can be replaced?
And before I forget, that push nut is extremely difficult to remove for several reasons. You can push it on further, if there is space for it, but removing it is a demolition job.
