    Hello all.
    This goes out to all of your K5 fans/guru's.
    Just bought a '91 K5 (used to have an 86, never should of sold it)
    Anyhow, this 1991 has the newer side mirrors (driver/passenger side). Both are full power mirrors.
    Has anyone (or known anyone) that changed out the newer power mirrors for the older classic style (70's/80's style chrome, manual) one's? These plastic power mirrors really suck, and look terrible. I haven't had a chance since getting this, to find at least a mid to late 80's model to see if the mirrors match up.
    Can anyone tell me if this is an easy swap/installation going from power to manual side mirrors?
    Thanks in advance! :bow:

    Donno, I've only ever seen people put the power mirrors on -- they are desireable to some folks.

    Me, I like the old style, but I'm weird.

    If you do remove them, let me know (dremu -at- yahoo -dot- com) as I know a guy who wants some or all of the power stuff.

    The 80's mirrors, like what are on my K5, bolt right on. I could be very interested in a trade if you have pictures of the mirrors and they are still in decent shape.
