I have been researching options for replacement door mirrors. I like the black 'Baby Tornado' style mirrors but am open to other options. I would prefer a convex RH side, but it's not necessary. Here is what I have so far (for a pair):

1) Baby Tornado mirrors from DMS: $200
2) Black 'Tex' mirrors from Victoria British: $70
3) EMPI Baby Tornado knock-offs (does anybody know the correct part #, the door mirrors for VW bug / Ghia are not correct).

Any other options, thoughts, considerations, etc???

I see there are some strong feeling about side view mirrors out there...

I ended up 'refurbishing' my rattling and pitted chrome mirrors with some Gorilla Glue to hold the mirror in place. I then sanded, cleaned, primed, and painted them semi-gloss black.

Hi Mitch, I like the look, especially on yellow!

FYI on the door mirrors for our cars. They are identical to those on 74 MGBs. The only difference is the mounting plinth.
