That looks nice. I have the same mirrors, but my doors already had holes drilled into them. So I mounted on the doors. I wish I could have put it on the trim but I had to cover the existing holes somehow.

Looks nice and similar to the originals although the originals had no screws visible and, of course, they were on the belt molding as you already know. Are the ones you used of the type being sold on eBay?

Hi Don,
I purchased my mirrors from an online shop here in Germany Oldtimerbedarf
Yes, one screw head is visible, but they are close enough for me.

I installed the passenger side mirror, and while it is not much good while driving, I think it will help me while backing up into the one garage that is tricky to get into with three doorways I back through....I will not intall a passenger side mirror on the Caribbean. I think the Pass side Mirror Was not often installed originally.
One minor thing I would like to improve....I get some Wind noise from the A pillars, or the vent windows. I can't be sure of the source, but will try driving tomorrow with clear tape over this joint between the roll down window and vent wing to see if that makes any difference.
