Re: Mirror thread

You are right Special-K. I think this is why this thread may be so popular. More guys need to post pics too.

My full spid says D29 R/V Mirror - JR-L & R

Like specialk said it's not all straight forward

My first several posts were all 72's
It seems like there isn't much discrepancy by the time 72 came around

Here is another example of outfield/specialk quandary
A 71 with DG4's listed as below eyeline

The same mirror listed as D29 RV on outfields 69

I am unable to get pictures from my camera to my laptop ever since an update...and it sucks! Everything has been fine with this computer on Windows10 till they force some update that renders my computer useless as a picture source. Guess I'll go buy some film!

Re: Mirror thread

That looks really good! Thanks for posting the picture. I'll have to see about getting one of those. The right side sport mirror is fairly useless as it is.

Re: Mirror thread

Some aftermarket 71/72 mirrors get loose and floppy in short time. I hope you got a good one with the added weight of the spot mirror. Not trying to br negative, I think it's a great and useful idea. Just beware of low quality mirrors

Re: Mirror thread

Just put these sport style mirrors on mine, was worried about the lack of visibility from the passenger side that has been stated. I got the "objects are closer than they appear" version, i.e. convex, and can see just fine. Got them from ClassicParts.com.

Well there you go, I should have checked the forum before I ordered. That looks great, thanks.

That is nice. I'd be interested in your take on the quality of the mirror. I have GM originals right now, but I would consider taking off my right side mirror and putting it in storage for something like this, if it's not total junk.

Well, since they've only been on for a month or so I can't speak to longevity, but so far so good. They seem sturdy enough, no movement, and are made of metal as far as I can tell. When I bought the truck it had Ford style mirrors, really cheap plastic things that moved around a lot.

Re: Mirror thread

Here are 2 threads on DG4 (and D29 if painted) mirrors where I contributed things I've learned. I'm too lazy to repeat the info here.

Re: Mirror thread

Aftermarket. I can almost remember the company name. The adjustable upper arm is a dead give away. Western Auto sold them as well as many other stores.

Those mirrors are to the SPID on my 1971. Long gone, but I remember them well. So do my doors, which currently have 11 mirror holes each.

The mirror heads and elbows in your picture in post 6 are not correct for our trucks. They appear to be from the square body era or later. All the trucks from our generation had an external mount for the elbow, the elbows had threaded studs and the studs utilized acorn nuts at both ends for attachment. The heads were like those in the picture below. The elbows were larger but had the same overall appearance. as those below.

Re: Mirror thread

Good point. The '70s square bodies also ran the bolt-on head and by the '80s they went with integrated arm and head
