View Full Version : Mirror Arms

02-16-2007, 09:23 PM
I have the door hinges which have the hole for a mirror arm. Right now I have a jurry rigged Series III mirror assembly on the drivers side and nothing on the passengers side. I would like to mount mirrors on the hinges like they are supposed to be. I know that the style of mirror head is up to me and I am leaning towards the rectangular ones over the round ones but which mirror arms do I need to buy? I know that the current SIII arm won't work. Thanks in advance.

If I recall correctly the original mirror arm for the II-IIA hinges was similar to that mounted on the wing, but had a boomerang base. They may be the ones that Craddock’s sells in the UK (and you could try PB Blanchard):

p 57 in our host’s catalogue shows the wing mirror arm as the part for the IIA door mirror...it will fit but I do not think it was originally intended:

and RN does not appear to have the boomerang types.

There is an adapter plate for a version of the SIII door mirror arm that also works on the IIA, but I haven't seen these for a while (the plate has two bols that attach to the hinge bolts, and the arm then bolts to the part of the plate that sticks out below the hinge...).

Thanks for the offer but I ordered 2 arms and 2 mirrors yesterday.
