What are your guys thoughts on the new convex sport mirror assy
#1
Posted an ad about this new mirror assembly a few weeks ago.
Thought these would spark some interest.
Complete new inner swivel assemble with convex glass.
Looking for some feedback

If it will make my wife say that she doesn't look fat in it, I'll take one!

Let me check your shorts!

"Convex," not "Concave."  Meaning, it'll offer a more panoramic view - by bending the surface outward slightly, it'll cover more area for viewing.  Much like those little round convex mirrors people used to put on their truck mirrors back in the '70s & '80s.

So, it'll pretty much make everybody look fat.  whistling


I like it!  I'm thinking I'll be getting one sooner than later - especially, since the ball & socket in my passenger mirror seems to have lost it's tension and pretty much just flops downward at the first bump in the road.

I know you don't have control over this, but what I'd really like to see is a complete set of dashboard switch bezels (lights, wipers, lighter) like the ones available for the '70 models. A new 'Park' light would be awesome, too. Those are pretty much the only things that don't look new on my dash, thanks to you having pretty much everything else I needed. I mean, the 'Lights' bezel opening is the same shape as the 'Wipers' bezel opening... why can't they just make one using the same tooling as the wiper bezel that just says 'LIGHTS' in the label area? Still waiting... Wink

I installed just the mirror itself by breaking off the existing one and gluing in the curved one. It makes for a much safer ride in traffic. i love it.

I forget where I got it, I think it was recommended here though.

73 ragtop, 1999 Mustang Bright Atlantic Blue Paint, Phoenix Engine 302-335HP,  Edelbrock Carb & Performer manifold; c4 with 2000 stall and shiftkit; 3:55 auburn limited slip differential, Hedman shorties; Car Chemistry Exhaust

I thought I saw these mirrors in the NPD catalog and when I tried to order one (I think they ran around $16) they said they were out. That was a while ago. How much do you sell them for Don? Thanks!

I have the convex glass already, but the swivel assembly on mine is junk.  I just ordered one from OMS at $74.95 (keep in mind, it's not just the glass - it comes with the swivel, glass base/backing, etc).

75 bucks?! Nothing's too expensive for my car LOL but I have to think about that one! I am very close of having completed my parts search, both original and aftermarket. Rest of my budget haha is for body work, paint and a new top of course!

Don,
Is it the same size as the OEM ? I put the replacement from West coast cougar in mine and it fit well a worked great, but I believe it should be made larger like the driver mirror glass.
Thanks, Jay

It's the same size as OEM but they should've made it same size as driver size mirror glass. Passenger being smaller looks just weird!
