Any one Know a supplier of mirrors that will pass the SVA tests. I know Hawk cars sell them at about 58 each and so do Dax and GD; but has anyone put them to the test and passed. I dont mind spending the money as long as they do the business and I am well past believing anything a manufacturer who wants to sell me a set has to say. Anyone out there who has used a pair please let me know.

Hi Bob
I fitted one offside wing mirror and a convex interior mirror from Dax (on loan) and passed the SVA also a friend has fitted and retained both wing mirrors and a convex interior mirror from Dax and passed SVA.
If you fit any mirror make sure it is E marked.
Make sure that if roll bar's are fitted they don't obscure the field of view
regards
Paul

In this month's kit car, 'Lolocost parts' (I think thats the name) are selling SVA -type mirrors for 14 quid. I think it'll be a rather nasty black plastic affair, but what the heck. Plenty would buy it off you (like me :-) )

If you are building a AK then Ken will loan you his set for the test.
