Hi

I’ve ordered some Land Rover defender mirrors for our CF as the standard onesare pretty useless, probably due to the wide body.
Does anyone know if the original mirrors will bolt onto the wings like the old days?
I’ve a feeling they’d give a better view as I’ve seen some Bedford ambulances with something similar.

Any ideas?

Pete

Wing mounted mirrors will need a stiff backing plate stuck on the inside of the panel to prevent the mirrors from wobbling too much.

1.5mm thick sheet about 100mm x 50mm may be enough; quick cure 2-pack epoxy will do for glue.
