    I stuck a small fisheye mirror onto the hinge with two sided tape and let her fly. Didn't work worth a crap but it was " legal" /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    LOL @ zakk! The fisheye mirror sounds like a good idear. I don't care if it functional, just as long as its legal. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    how to remove your door:
    open door
    get BIG hammer... wait that's prolly the wrong way to go about it. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    get a mirror on a stick, and tape the stick part in line with the natural line of the windshield. attach with "the handy man's secret weapon" and your done. you can even colour match the secret weapon to your rig if you're so bold as to do. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    remember, if the women don't find you hansome, they should at least find you handy. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I think finding a cheap $10 kragen's mirror would be your best bet...

    I put on tube doors... and then needed to come up with a way to mount mirrors to keep them legal as summer doors..
    I got 2" tube clamps, and found some $10 mirrors from Kragens that would work with the countersink and hole in the clamps. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I did the hinge pin deal. I have the old three leg mirrors. I just unbolt the head and bolt it in the hole for the top hinge. Works great. When I fold it it comes in the truck so no chance of dragging it on a tree.
