There are two Threads about these mirrors but they are both archived so I can't revive them and insert a reply.

For those interested I've installed a pair on my 200 Series yesterday.
I'm very pleased with them.

Those interested can find a post about them on my Blog, here:

GB in a BT - Mirrors

Scroll halfway down the page when you get there.

I put some on the 100 series - great mirrors way far better than the old Aussie truck mirrors.

Stephen,

We also have them installed on the Patrol and find them much better than anything else we have used. Suggest anyone wanting them to contact BTI who sell them cheaper than the RRP.

I had to take the BT up to Perth today to have a couple of things done.

I found these mirrirs just great while towing. The rear visibility is excellent.

I had to reverse the van into a position on 3 different occasions. I used to have trouble reversing with convex mirrors but the flat glass (normal) mirriors make it a breeze. The small convex section just adds to the excellent visibilty.

I had 2 reasons to go to Perth.

I had a wheel alignment done at Big Wheels in Forrestfield. They also tightened up the bearings at the same time.

A very good job.

Big Wheels Perth

We overnighted at a friend's factory in Kwinana because the next day we went to Nukote.

Nukote Australia

They applied a sprayed on polymer coating on to the van's nose cone to protect it against stone damage (and to cover existing stone damage). The boys there are very good and I am pleased with the end result.

cheers to all.

See you all at Denmark in a week or so. Can't wait.

Hi Stephen,
after reading your post about the mirrors and checking out the website I ordered a pair this morning.

We are soon heading into the wilderness for 12 months or so while waiting for our new home to be built and thought these will save a lot of mucking around when disconnected from van.

Before ordering I called Toyot* spares and they quoted $407 including GST per wing mirror - WOWee told the guy that at that price I would put up with the couple of scratches I managed to collect on L/H mirror.

Will check yours out in Denmark.

Cheers

If you want, I can help fit them at Denmark.

I've done 2 sets so far.

Hello Steven,

I have given a set of these a good deal of thought, but I remain skeptical that I can keep them intact while driving down tight bush tracks.

It they did not stick out as far as they do when at their innermost position, I would buy a set straight away.

Cheers.

Willie,

They can be folded flush in against the car on tight tracks.
