West Coast Mirrors




As you can tell my drivers side mirror was pretty tweaked up. I managed to straighten up the frame work but it still needs a little work. The only problem is this ribbed mirror doesn't belong. Anyone know where I could find the correct mirror? Thanks

Huge selection at retrac, can't buy directly through them though. They'll send you to one of their vendors.

Grote 16101 is a white bubble back mirror, can be found cheap at many places online.

Re: West Coast Mirrors

Thanks Robert. My original looks more like a Grote. I'm sure I'll buy a pair anyway.

Re: West Coast Mirrors

I was wrong when I said mine looked like the Grote mirrors. After searching I found the Retrac mirrors online. I ordered a pair while I was sitting in the race trailer in Topeka today. That was good down time. Thanks for the info guys.

Re: West Coast Mirrors



After looking all over the internet for a Retrac dealer with no luck. I stumbled onto these on EBay. I ordered then during downtime at the racetrack in Topeka last weekend. They were here when I got home yesterday. $40 shipped, good score. I'm thinking about getting my mirror bracketry powder coated now. Hey at least something will be restored.
