Truck mirrors for T3
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).

Re: Truck mirrors for T3
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

RE: Truck mirrors for T3
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.

RE: Truck mirrors for T3
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?

RE: Truck mirrors for T3
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
