    Well, Geoff...eccentric or not, that really is a good neat solution to all the problems. I would be VERY interested to see whatever additional details you can provide. I'm still soldiering on with my VW door mirrors, but in today's particularly windy weather both blew out of adjustment making it very stressful overtaking both when pulling out and pulling back in. How about a write-up for Pitstop?

    I did start a write-up, and then life got in the way. You have encouraged me. I could send you more details if you wish - how do personal messages work?

    Hi Bill
    This may or may not be of interest, I fitted round wing mirrors at the front of the wings by the side lights using the mounting bolt holes for the wing stays so no extra holes required, these came from Car builder solutions https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/...ror-pair-106mm
    I have left the originals in place on the doors and I find I now have a great field of view including one along the whole length of running boards which is great for reversing in and out of tight spaces
    I think they look ok too!

    Thanks, Bryan...another excellent solution. I've actually gone with Geoff b's method pictured above (as I have somethings to hide). I'll be sending the Editor some pictures once I've sorted out the right mirrors and got the adjustment properly organized.
