    Since I am doing a bare metal re-finish I searched the chat for thoughts on what mirrors would look like they belong and give one a real view of what's back there. I didn't find any threads other than the usual Vits or baby turbos so I took a chance and bought a set of C3 mirrors. Just wanted to let everyone know that they fit better than the original. What I mean is that the mirrors are designed with a slight rearward slant and that gives a full field of view on the left and the right while the mounting is just a little lower than stock. I may also add that the remote cable for the DS is about three feet long and I was able to place it in the same spot as the original elec. switch but you could ,if you wanted to, mount the adj. knob on the lower dash. IMHO she looks lower and proper now. My apologies to the purest but I never built a concours or trailer queen so for myself this modification has done exactly what I wanted and from start to finish (minus the final Nero paint) it took only 3hrs.
    I still have to weld up the old holes however. cheers, Lost

    PS I have the complete original mirror with switch harness and backing plate if anyone needs one. I don't want to sell it but I could be interested in a swap. PM

    It looks as if you are doing the paint yourself, and I have considered doing the same on my 308 (Glasuirt Nero at present). Would you expand a bit on the technique of unpainting, preparing and shooting? Your help is appreciated.
