new tow mirrors for obs

Hey guys,
Just wanted to show off some mirrors I've been working on for my obs. They are made for a Chevy 03-07. You have to just excuse me for that, but I couldn't figure anyway to modify Fords or Dodges to fit (without losing the wing window). It uses the exsisting mirror mounts obviously. Now I got power, heat, turn signals and extendable for towing.

Forgive me for saying so but they look like they are going to bounce around alot, and possibly crack the door where they are mounted just my 2cents

Looks good! I was wondering the same thing as burma69 though. Are they supported enough that they won't bounce around and loosen up or break something? If they're sturdy enough, it's a great way to get better mirrors without loosing our wing windows or putting more holes in the doors. Good work.

Well you don't have to worry about cracking or shaking. Our mounts attach to a reinforced outer skin on the door and also have a post continuing through the door attaching to the inside of the door. The mounts are well designed by ford and attach at angles for further support. Also the new mirrors weigh no more than the old mirrors once the chevy mounting system has been removed from them. The only problem with this is they really need to be slid forward a couple more inches to really receive the full benefits of the larger mirror. Its something I'm working on right now, a bracket for the mount to extend them a little further. Or I may just move them up a bit and weld up the door when I paint the truck this summer. They work fine for now and have at least as good of a view as the old mirrors but not perfect yet.
