    wing mirrors

    Thinking of changing my old wing mirrors for these.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Classic-C...IAAOSwLq5aqSse

    Has any one got a picture of similar on their car?

    Cheers Clive

    I would avoid those. I bought some and could not see a thing out the back. Look mice but dont work.

    I ended up buying a couple of black (matching paint work) plastic caps to fill the screw holes where old mirrors were and went for some Radyot style mirrors mounted to the wind screen via a home made aluminium bracket.

    The passenger's side had to be spaced out a bit further to ensure I could get a decent angle / view.

    +1 for the raydot style except I bent my passenger bracket to enable me to see in it.

    +2 for the raydot style but mine is in black. I too had to bend the passenger side mounting plate and I have used convex replacement mirrors.

    I can't upload a picture as it looks like I have used my allotted quota for photos and don't appear to be able to delete any to create more space? Anyone know what to do?

    Cheers Ian

    Can anyone tell me what size and length of bolts were used to mount the mirror bracket to the windscreen please? It looks like the upper mounting incorporated the side vent upper mounting? Is there a specific length of bolt for this too please? Thanks
