The vertical mirrors on my 87 are going to kill me. I can't turn my head very far due to past neck injuries and I just can't seem to get used to the skinny mirrors. Has anyone replaced these critters with a more up to date style? I see the newer ones have a normal mirror. Any suggestions would be welcome. Well, almost any.

Bought some bolt ons at Pep Boys this afternoon. I can now see 3 lanes of traffic instead of 1/2 of one. Thanks for all of the help

If you find some ones that you like, I will try to buy the ones that you have and put them on my 85.

I think that I saw some horizontal mirrors at Advance. They have a mounting stud in the center of the bottom that looks as if it will go down thru the mounting arms on the trk and put a nut on it.

You can get some off a mid 80s chevy truck/van or get the same design brand new at oreillys. They are about 8 inches by 8 inches. They look kinda like that.

Does your passenger side mirror have the "Objects may look smaller.....etc,etc" on it? I need one of thosefor my 85, a vertical mirror.

I may be wrong, it has happened once. But I don't think the replacement mirrors say that.

Yeah, like you say the repl mirrors don't say that but I want to buy his ones that are on the truck if they say it. I have real trouble seeing stuff out of the RH mirror because mine is one that used to be on the drivers side and I was forced to put a Drivers mirror on the Pass side to be "legal?" So now I want the one that gives a better field of vision so that I don't turn back in front of cars cuz I didn't see them.

The only mirrors that say "Objects in mirror..." are convex (curve outward). Most replacement glass is flat, which is why they don't say it. Your driver's mirror is also flat, which is why it doesn't say it, and why you can't see as good with it on the passenger side. You can get the convex glass from a glass shop or the dealer (both are quite expensive), or try to find one in a JY. I don't think I've ever seen aftermarket convex replacement "stick-on" glass..
