I've seen people us Jeep mirrors, probably best bet. Or fab up a bracket you can use on the hinge from the door.

In texas we only need 1 mirror and the inside one counts so I don't bother

The brackets are nice. If you need them (to keep legal), then that would work. On the driver's side, you don't really need a bracket, you can just drill three holes in the side of the panel just above the hinge and it mounts just fine. However on the passenger's side, you will need a bracket to raise the mirror up, if you don't then the mirror is too low to see (thru the windshield).

You can do it like 87zuke did, or you can get the early metal mirrors, and the mounting plate will screw down with an exact fit to the side boss just below the windshield frame. The mirror is fractionally smaller than the later plastic morrors, but will do the job.

I bought a set from Benjamin off Ebay, like these http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eb...mp;r=0&t=0

They are made from diamond plate. They work perfect and they locate the mirrors in the stock location.

If you have any other diamond plate like rockers, etc. they go well.

Re: Mirror mounts after removing doors

Well I happen to like them. To each his own, but there is really no need to insult other people's vehicles. They may not be your taste, but don't rip on me or my sam. I didn't think we did that kind of thing here. It's not like they are on year round either, only when running doorless. They look better than those ground up scaps some people are using.

My concern with them is that they look potentially dangerous in an accident.
