Does anyone know where I can find used/rough 47-55 side view mirrors?

I'm looking for a set of used side view mirrors for my farm truck. I don't want a new set, like the ones listed all over eBay. There aren't any used ones on there. Does anyone know where I can find an old set?

Came here hoping to see advice on how to "weather" some new ones.

If he had set his new ones out side where he lives and left them they would be weathered by now. Or nevrdone could do it even faster on the shady side of his shed in Duvall.

Guess I shouldn't have thrown all of those crappy looking old mirrors away 30 years ago.

best weathering solution I have used is the one from skymangs, mix up a spray bottle with salt, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide and shake it. to get the mirror looking old before weathering, dont sand it, use a blaster and keep it at the same angle as you sweep by the mirror back.
