Hi All, anyone wanting to sell a pair of mirrors to fit my windscreen or my roll cage. I have bullet mirrors which I had off hughbug nearly 2 years ago which look fab but like Hugh said at the time can't see much in them, but they suit the buggy.  Cheers Deb

 a convex rear view mirror of a decent size top centre of the screen helps, if you have a roof then
screen mounted outer mirrors are out unless you have brackets like buggybaggy made he may have been baggybuggy back then.

Thanks Keith I do have a centre screen mirror but my number plate is too high and blocking my view, so that needs to be moved lower, another winter job.  Cheers and thank you to Santa Paul for trying to get me an early Xmas pressie 😂😂😂 kind thought Deb

I've just bought these because the cheap Chinese ones at the side of my screen keep moving by themselves ;) - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pair-Lucas-Style-Classic-Car-Chrome-Door-Wing-Mirrors-with-Convex-Mirror-Glass/163681605772?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649.

These are the cheapest of that sort available on eBay, so I've done your research for you :)

They seem quite sturdy and good quality convex mirrors, and I plan to fit them soon, or when other little jobs allow.

Cheers :)

Hi has anyone tried the clamp on mirrors that fit on to the roll bar?  If so are they any good? Cheers Deb

Morning Deb....  Roll bar rear view mirrors are a commonly available item. They are quite sturdy being clamped at two points of the bar. Available in the standard pipe diameters.    Developed originally for the FIA boy racers for their track days. (FIA as strict as VOSA IVA).   Just beware of the ebay chinese items. Many are so poorly made they wont last a week and have no EU approval whatsoever.

Yes they are bulky Deb.... Often "wide angle" curved mirrored glass.
