Door mirrors.

Post by b.c.flat hat » Sat Mar 15, 2014 12:27 pm

Both my cars have been vandalised by kicking the door mirrors off, thought I'd have a right job finding correct matching replacements but this place does both.

I had some chrome ones that shape on the coupe once. The bowl was very thin. Not much of a knock bent the shape where the inside bolt attaches it to the stem. Might be an idea to line the inside with fibreglass to increase rigidity.
