Latchable door straps and where to put my mirrors

Any of you guys ever buy any of the latchable door limit straps from Zukicreations on Ebay. I think he is one of the lurkers here if i'm not mistaken. I ordered a set from him last week for 12 bucks shipping included. They look very nice and sturdy, a professional job.

Now I have to figure out what to do about mirrors. Anybody out there have a set that they make or an idea that I can fab? Pics would be nice too so that I can see what the finished product looks like. Thanks guys.

Re: Latchable door straps and where to put my mirrors

I also run a 5 panel wink mirror. I removed my visors and utilized the visor screws to attach the mirror. The field of vision is so great that it obliviates the need for an outside mirror. To keep the local gendarmes happy, I have a small outside mirror with a magnetic base. (I posted some pictures last fall.)

Re: Latchable door straps and where to put my mirrors

Crow,
Yes, I need a way to mount the side view mirrors with my doors off. I will not have a problem with the law. Around here they don't seem to care what you do as long as it doesn't interfere with their donut shop appointment. There are trucks running around here that don't even have most of the body attached. A good friend of mine has a full size bronco that does not have any front end sheet metal on it. No fenders, no hood, no grill or bumper, just an engine and a radiator sticking up in the air. It has no glass in it at all, no rear door, no side doors, 44" Super Swamper tsl's with about 12 inches of lift. Both differentials are welded and the exhaust consists of headers and pipe coming out the back, no mufflers are cats at all. It sits on the side of the road with broken ring gears more often than not. Nobody has said a word to him about it not being safe and he has been driving for almost two years now. If he can get away with that, then I ought to be OK with no mirrors. But I would like to be able to see behind me from the sides.
