    Has anyone bought any side mirrors from any of the UK 355 Mr2 Builders

    Hey Guys,

    Has anyone on here bought a set of side mirror from any of the UK 355 Mr2 Builders like Roy Kelly, B.A.D. and Extreme and used them on your Fiero based build ? All of these are 355 replica Mr2 manufactures. I was hoping to see if anyone could recommend them or not. I'm in search of a source for some side mirrors that look authentic. Any info on this subject is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Neal,
    I am talking to Terry of Extreme right now about the mirrors. He said it might be a few weeks before he can construct them and it will cost 350GBP which is about $700. He said the base will be a different angle too because the rake of the windshield on an MR2 is different from the fiero. I figured I could modify it to work. I will let you know in the weeks to come. Thanks.

    Bob,

    Thanks for the info on the mirrors but $700 is pretty steep. But when something is custom made I guess there is a preium to pay. Let me know what you can.

    Thanks

    No, These are a lot better quality than the ones Jonnoprice on eBay has been selling. They also have precut mirror glass included. Ron, I always think of you when the side mirror topic comes up. I dont know why, I would just love to see your car get some correct mirrors but I figured $700 plus international shipping is too much for mirrors. I can not even talk myself into taking that plunge.

    LOL, yeah $700 + shipping is a hard hit for mirrors. I wish I had some fiberglass skill to finish the mirror project I started. :-\

    Hey Guys,

    I really considering corvette mirrors on my project now. I can get a used set for around $150 and they look great on the car the only difference is they will mount on the door rather than a triangle mounting point that I would need to weld to the door frame. What are some of your opions on this subject. Do you guys think that looks ok, cheesy, or do you have a better souce for mirrors?

    Thanks

    The mirrors that Jonnoprice sells on Ebay, has anyone here purchased a set ??? they look pretty good in the pictures for the money he is asking... But it is always better to hear from someone who has bought them first hand :-)

    I think the corvette mirrors are great looking mirrors, but the ferrari style that comes out from above the door just looks a lot better and more original to me.

    Here is the link for the mirrors i was referring too on ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=10380

    I have sent him an inquire about his best price on a set...

    From the looks in the photo of the mirrors, they look more like what would come on a porsche 944. The head of the mirror doesn't look oval enough. Overall not really bad but not the best I have seen either. I have never bought from those guys so I don't really know just going off the photo.

    Sorry I couldn't help more
