Truck mirrors for T3 - benniebez - 03-31-2012 11:06 PM

So I wanted the nice big Caravelle mirrors for our bus, but at R2,5k each it was outta my budget, so I search and found these nice universal truck mirrors done by Stirling. Bought 'em @ R840 for the set and started with getting brackets made on Saturday morning at Metal Land in George. Went home and started fitting and adjusting to make a clean fit. Did this in quite a few hours as I watched rugby, went to the shops to sort SWAMBO'S stuff etc. I think the end result was good and spending only R990 without the spray paint and Tectyl (had cans in my garage).

HI Bennie I am on the same hunt as you for the truck ones I have found slight smaller side mirrors but still working on the steel arm
How does the bottom attachment work ? would you mind posting some close ups or a short explanation and the top is the tube welded in to the the bracket ?
On the top I found a bracket that can also bolt on and the arm can still be moved forward and backwards I think it is from a Dyna truck
does your steel arm able to move or is it not movable

I came across this old thread and was wondering if anyone can tell me what type of truck mirrors will fit a T3, i.e. what make and model of truck. I don't mind if some modification needs to be made to the mounting arms. Thanks.

my truck mirrors are the Oe Vw ones no mods needed, built for a T3, just need to drill extra hole in the top of the door frame

Thanks, Stuart. When you say 'my mirrors'do you mean the ones on one of your buses, or do you have for sale? If not, would I have to order from Germany?

I love mine and I'm planning on getting another set for the white bus.

My other set is driving around on a golden Syncro or lying in a scrapyard somewhere. Sad
