It's 22.2cm * 6.7cm. Not that much smaller than the original, but the rounded shape makes a big difference, as does the way it's mounted further away from the driver.Yes, that looks sharp. Would love to see a side by side comparison to the Sector111 and HethelSport options. Brendan, can you measure the width and height of the MB mirror? Thanks.
Man that looks nice! What year is the SLK mirror you took from?This thread finally inspired me to finish my latest project. I've adapted a mirror from an early Mercedes SLK to fit my Evora.
Size comparison - it's usefully smaller, and the oval shape reduces the blind spot significantly:
First, I cut a rectangle out of the Mercedes mirror stem, allowing it to slide down over the mounting plinth. I slipped a couple of times with the cutting disk, so I'll have to paint the stem when I get around to it:
Then I cut the mounting point from the original mirror to fit inside the Mercedes stem. It's actually a tight enough fit that I haven't even bothered with properly fixing it in place yet. I could maybe put a screw through it, or more simply use adhesive. I'll do that after I get around to painting it:
The design of the Mercedes stem is such that the mirror is mounted slightly further away from the driver, closer to the windscreen. This reduces the blind spot a little more.
nope from me. This is your first post???
