Fender Mirror Mounts ??

While in NZ, I saw many vehicles with front fender side view mirrors. Seems to me that the view provided by them is better than our door mounted mirrors and would solve the doorless/mirror issue and provide an improved view of the side. Heidi at Zookin had something similar, but I can't seem to find anything that will work and look good as well. Any ideas?

Anyone from Ozzie or NZ have any ideas? Thanks!

Re: Fender Mirror Mounts ??

before i went using cjs on my windshield i used the stock mirrors mounted at the front. if you open your hood you will see some hole at the edges. i used them to mount my mirrors. it was a way better solution than mounting them in front of the stock position and i worked for 2 years...

what i dit not like was first vibrations when you were waiting at a traffic-light and second that everything was smaller than in reality. on the other hand - when i was used to it i had a good overview and saw more than in the stock position. just try it - you will loose nothing because the holes are there...

Hey Crow.

From what I've seen, early model Japanese and British cars had both wing mirrors mounted on the front fenders. I think most of them where sourced from Japan as the New Zealand new models (of the same vehicle) had the mirrors mounted on the doors.

Some New model 4wds have had a single mirror mounted on the passenger front fender as well as two door-mounted mirrors. Similar to the setup in some trucks. these are stup as a down view mirror, for a better view of the passenger side front tyre/wheel and where its located.

Crow, Search the net for someone who sells to Schoolbuses. Or scour the junkyards for old postal vehicles. They have similar mounts to what I think you are lookin for. Jim

Hey Crow,
I know the mirrors that your that your talking about. Do you have any trucks stops
near you? That's where your are going to find them. Look at most tractor trailer trucks, they have similiar mirrors on their front fenders.

BTW - How's that Mighty Kong?
