KY Fender mount mirrors

Has anyone installed them on a usdm car? I loved them when I drove my freinds 240z and they just fit classic jdm cars in my opinion. So the real question is were could I get them and does anyone have a set?


Thanks,
-Austin

AR-F in Japan might have them. Other than that, I was thinking about mounting electric door mirrors somewhere on the fenders or getting some z-fender mirrors and diy-ing the **** out of it.

they look good but making working under the hood a major pita. so what I have planned is to use a set of the Z billet ones with a quick release pin so I can work on the car as needed.

These pictures are old, and they've been cleaned up a bit:

However, i got these on ebay for 30 bucks, and they work great

Remember to reinforce the mounting point under the fender where you mount them or you
will have issues with them distorting the fenders and wobbling a lot at speed.

I have used the factory power mirrors on the fenders, but it does require a bit of creative bracing on the inside. The idea seems great until you smash your junk on them for the 17th time trying to do something under the hood.
