I bought those mirrors from Moss to replace the pitting ones on the car, I
have covex and even though I don't care for them, I decided to get convex
I don't care for them because it is real difficult to judge distance of
"Objects in Mirror", at least for me. However, since they are way out in
front on the fendres, excuse me, wings, I thought that the flat mirror
would just not show enough. But, hey, I could be wrong.
I haven't put the new ones on yet, but I have to admit that I was a little
disappointed. They are not the real heavy chrome of the originals. In
fact, the back of the mirror appears to be polished aluminum. But it was a
good price and I am sure they will look good on the car.
