I decided to add the SD mirrors from a 99 as the 08 mirrors are a bit much at 800 to 1200.
before i started i spent alot of time taking measurements and just looking at it to picture how it would look.
stock mirror removed
new mirror on with 3/16 steel plate and a frame of 1/8 rod for the fiberglass to go over.
view from drivers seat
i have pics of the work in progress that i can post if anyone wants to see them.
Not trying to be a smart butt, or rain on your parade.. But from the pictures you posted it looks like there is going to be one heck of a blind spot, especially on the passenger side.

here are some more pics of the work in progress.
we used the mirror as a guide to put the 1/8 rod in place for the fiberglass shell.
be careful to go weld slowly as to not warp the door. ataching 3/16 steel plate to the thin metal on the door it got hot. i am getting ready to do the fiberglass and will post more pics when i can. also as you can see i chose not to attach it to the window bar because if i ever have to change the main window i will have to move the bar.

Yep I agree you got talent it dose look ok . But the vent windows is the reason I like that style of truck. I take it OBS stands for old body style. When its raining you can have a vent window open and not get soaked LOL
