Ben, What are you currently using for mirrors that don't work? Are they the same mirrors that Chuck is using? I ask since I have a pair of the same ones as Chuck is using AND I plan to use them to pull an enclosed trailer (trailer sides inside the trailer wheels). When I got Willard, he had had the typical west coast mirror which I will not go back to.
I do like the way these look on the truck but I am not sure how well they are going to work. They may be a little small if the truck was used regularly for towing a trailer. I was thinking of maybe changing the mirror to a 5" simmiliar to what is used on a early Chevy but I going to give these a try first.
What Toy Should I Play With Today
Still A Kid After All These Years.
I just purchased some and was installing today. I ground the hinge down to fit the mirror arm, tapered the new pin, thought that everything was lined up right, The pin went down ok but when I gave it a tap to set the splines on the pin the bottom of the arm broke. The arm looks like it is just chrome plated pot metal. I know that most of this repo stuff is just imported crap but I would like to get some quality mirrors and I don't mind spending a little extra for good stuff. I did not buy my mirrors from the vender that I got the picture from by the way.
I had the same problem. I like the shape of the mirrors but the hinge mount is not a good design. I got mine from Speedway. I asked them how to get a new bracket and they sent me a new mirror at no charge.
I also found these larger stalk mirrors that I thought that I could use if I want to tow a trailer.
