Passenger door kerb mirrors

I'm thinking about getting one as reversing in the new drive way means passing parked cars in my NSF blind spot.


Does anyone have one or can suggest one, cost is an issue.

Tried to find one that did not involve drilling holes in the van, so far unsuccessful. Fresnel lens fitted to side window is another option: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-Auto-...rk:10:razz:f:0[/URL]

Wots wrong with the bog standard as supplied at great cost by the van supplier? Mirrors are adjustable and designed for backing up?

p.s. I have a brand new pair of American RV split heated electric mirrors for sale. New $900 each but mine £100 the pair.

Let me know if you find one that does not require drilling MH.

Will do, I think a possibilty might be to clamp on the top edge with grub screws going into the inside top edge, a bit like you could get in the 70's instead of a door or wing mirror.

Not sure I'd be bothered about drilling, just leave it on when it eventually sells.
