“A Nice, Big Mirror to Help You See What's Behind...”
My old intro was talking about the new tooling for our current run of mirrors.
It was time to rewrite, as the current run is getting low, and we are talking about
reordering. We did have to retool a couple of years back, as our manufacturer had
lost the old moulds.
This run of mirrors has been a good one. The chrome is nice, and the castings
really are better than the old ones. You probably know that these mirrors are
replicas of the British Leyland mirrors made here in the U.S. and installed by the
dealers. They do have nice big lenses to give you a view of the road behind. I have
two mirrors from the current run on my TR5 and on my TR6. Both have been
installed for several years, and they are holding up perfectly.
Note that these mirrors work well on the LH side of most cars, but it is not
possible to get a good view from the mirror when it is mounted on the RH side. I
know that some of you like the symmetry of a mirror on both sides, and I am happy
to sell two mirrors if you really want them. I am just letting you know up front that
the one the RH side might not give you much of a view...
