I have these vintage mirrors ready for the mold making process.

Cool!  I like that the outside mirrors mostly have mounting pegs. I never just glue a mirror to a door, I'll drill a hole to mount it.  And in most cases I'll drill out the mirror and insert a short length of straight pin in the absence of a mounting peg!

Good idea.

I for one would be interested in primarily exterior mirrors for  the big 3 makers , primarily late 50s to early 60s cars

Most of the old annuals all have the same basic generic outside mirror

I'm in!

Where do I order?! :D

It's been a long time coming!

With all of the casters out there, I don't understand why someone didn't do this a long time ago!

Harry P would be very happy to see your work, and he would chide us for not using these on our builds.

And he would be correct in doing so! ;)

Cars have mirrors.

The mold is complete, vents cut, wells cut in.  The first try is pretty good.  I use a sharpened coffee stirring stick to push the flash free from the parts edges.

I just received Gregg's mirrors. They are fantastic. Best of all the outside mirrors have attachment points {pinned} Just drill a hole in the door and push in. 

Thank you Gregg.
