IN Side Mirrors or Blind spot mirrors - DIY Inside

PostPost by: LotusElon » Tue Sep 13, 2022 8:46 pm

I wanted better overtaking side views but didn't want to spoil the outside of the car with external mirrors.
So used a pair of adjustable blind spot mirrors (£3-20 - Amazon) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0777FXZY2/?psc=1
I 3D printed a pair of mountings that simply slot into the top of the windscreen side trims (S4, sprint and possibly S3 not sure about earlier cars) here is a link to the 3D CAD .stl files and details https://drive.google.com/file/d/14Y6Bv5 ... Z7GHS/view

These might help someone else ??

Great idea and build well done. I’d have thought you could market these.
