Side view mirror(s)

Looking for appropriate (quality) side/rear view mirrors. Hate to drill holes in the doors for mounting, however o.k. if appropriate. Any original type designs recommended and their source? Thanks much.

Re: Side view mirror(s)

Hi Ron,

Before you drill holes in your doors you might concider a curved or streight arm "Peep mirror" they clamp on the door edge, I installed one over 35 years ago when I first restored my car and it looks as nice now as it did when I first installed it...I used the curved arm 4" (round) and installed it above the top hinge, the arm contours around the hinge...Don't remember where I bought mine ,but you can see them at lebaronbonney.com. If you install one on the passenger's side it would be for appearance only.

Re: Side view mirror(s)

Ron: They also make a mirror that fits over the door hinge. I have one on my star.

Re: Side view mirror(s)

Thanks! Have ordered from LeBaronBonney.com (The mirror that appears to integrate with the door hinge). Will report upon receipt. Ron
