View original topic: outside mirrors for 72 westie

ok did the search and not getting anything, but from tcash picks there was a good bit of info. in the older posts guys had a problem with the mounting bolts for the mirrors, too short. but it seemed like the more recent posts were favorable for the busdepot mirrors. does that sound right ?
any reason i should not pull the trigger ?

Going back 5 years but as I recall it was the Wolfsburg West mirrors that were the good ones

Here’s the thread from 2016

i've tried a whole lot of them, check my review on the thread he linked;start=40

tl;dr, these are incredibly good:

also available from the manufacturer directly:

they look totally stock, fit great and seem to be polished stainless...
but the kicker is the difference in what you can see with them is amazing

when i drive my wife's super fancy german SUV with huge mirrors im just like "wtf how can people drive like this? wish i was in my bus"

thks guys. i checked all the links you provided. dont know why the search didnt work for me. i really like that the blind spot is eliminated with the resto bus ones. at least i think thats what they are saying

I have a set of those convex stainless one on my 72 westy. I like them so far.

thanks to all that replied
