  • Don't be Fooled by Low Price

    I recently ordered a pair of bullet mirrors, which cost about $67. Here is a single mirror, which doesn't have quite as nice a shape as the ones I bought, but the price is less than half what I paid. This one doesn't specify what it's made of, but similar shaped and priced mirrors do say they are just chrome plated plastic.

        Modifying 1930 Town Sedan Rear View Mirror
        by H. L. Chauvin
        This may or may not help someone who would prefer to feel safer while having Model A rear view mirrors & peep mirrors where one can see "everything" like that of a riding in a new, modern car.

        Anyway, FWIW: Ever since I had my 1930 TS I have noticed two (2) important Life Safety things while traveling in slow moving or fast moving heavy multi-lane traffic.

        My under $4 side view mirrors !
        by Barber31
        I found these at Walmart and I just had to give them a try. My gen is down right now so I have not tested them yet but I'm sure even though they are super small I'm sure they are a tad better than no mirror at all.

        Six-Inch (6") Diameter Convex Model A Door Mounted L & R Mirrors
        by H. L. Chauvin
        A. Because of our today's, 2018 modern style, weaving in-and-out fast traffic, texting and phoning while driving, following too closely, etc., just for highway's safety's sake in heavy traffic in urban areas, I just decided "try" to install larger diameter "Convex" L & R door clip mounted mirrors on my 1930 Town Sedan to provide more wide angle rear viewing.

        Hinge pin mirror issues
        by BNCHIEF
        I have hinge pin mirrors on my 30 tudor, the gap between the hinge and the mirror is probably 1/4" when i screw the set screw in it almost threads completely thru the mirror, I shimmed up the gap with a piecece of aluminum strap wrapped in black duct tape to prevent marring but this does not hold the mirror in place . Any suggestions?

        Unknown outside mirror brackets
        by wrndln
        I bought a box of mirror stuff to get a couple original open car mirror brackets (type H in the JS's). There were some other brackets I don't know what they are for. I posted one bracket a few days ago that was tentatively identified as a 30/31 truck/pickup outside bracket. I am posting picture of the 4 brackets I need IDed - 2 pictures of each. I would appreciate any help IDing any of the brackets...
