Clip-On Side Mirrors



Well my truck is in the shop. Been there for a while. I've got them replacing anything bad with new metal and cleaning up the body, top to bottom.

I also chose to have a lot of holes filled. The side and rear reflector/markers have been filled. As well as the antenna and the SIDE VIEW MIRRORS.

I'm thinking of running clip-on mirrors like the old 50's trucks. Anyone else do this with their mirrors?

Pics???

Thanks!

I'm just hoping to avoid drilling any holes in my door.

I thought a small vintage roadster type mirror would be kind of neat.

Can anyone point me to a picture of a non-towing and unique mirror option???

Thanks!

I'm thinking about clipping the mirror to the 1/4 glass' vertical frame rail...

or even drilling a mounting hole directly through the 1/4 glass and using the glass as I would a door panel.

i have made up my mind and i am going without mirrors. the truck doesnt have many blind spots and i have had no trouble driving it without them.

if i were you i would not drill in new mirrors

Thank you for the input. I feel like I needed to hear it from someone else as I was considering the same. I certainly won't be drilling any holes after getting everything short of the door handles shaved.

I thought CA requires at least a driver's side view mirror. Is that not the case?

I feel like the clip on style rodder mirrors look kind of cool but not sure where it would clip to and how firmly without making indents.

I bought my bolt-on mirror from www.mooneyes.com, they had a few clip-on styles on that site to choose from.
