New mirror position?

Postby Victorsanders » Wed Jul 13, 2016 5:14 pm

Hi all, Just wanna ask some advice,

Iv just got some new classic look mirrors, and im trying to decide where to fit them.

My car currently has the normal (boring) fb mirrors on the doors.

However, i quite like the look of the SA mirrors on the front wings.

Here is an image of what i have, should i go for standard FB position or go for the SA position?

Car is gloss black by the way.


Thanks all!

I think they will look best on the wing near the front.
They look great. Where did they come from?

Personally, I think chrome guard mirrors are anachronistic on a FB - they suit much older vehicles. Even the series 1 JDM cars with the guard mounted mirrors had swooping black mirrors.

If you don't like the square Euro/JDM style mirrors, you could always get the curved style that came out on US and Australian FBs, like this:

I've seen them guard mounted before as well:

Sorry, I just realised the second picture I posted WAS an JDM series 1. Either way, it's the same style mirror.

they're from ebay, only paid £30 for them.

Do you think they would look better in black then?

If I'm honest I think they would look better on an MGB ......

Haha, theres nothing wrong with that! i just want mine to be different if you know what i mean, iv got a TWR bodykit which you dont see much of so i thought why not make it more individual :D.

i wont go silly with the customization though! Mazda knew what they were doing when they designed this beauty !
