Pics of my mirror delete--- from the driver's view

Well, I finally went out and took pics of all my convex mirrors and such.

I removed both stock mirrors, added an aftermarket driver side mirror, a convex mirror on each A-pillar, and a convex mirror above the rear view mirror. They all work pretty well

I got them from Autozone. They are blind spot mirrors for use on big truck mirrors, but mounted vertically. I think they were $3 each.

The one over the center mirror I got off ebay for like 5 bucks shipped.

Well, the green mirror more-or-less fell to pieces on the freeway. Put my stock mirror back on the drivers door and it looks ridiculous. It's really distracting when I'm going down the road cause I'm not used to this huge reflective surface in the corner of my eye.

Rats. Hope the green mirror didn't cost too much. For reflection-mitigation, I have been toying with removable window shading. The clingy-stuff that you can peel off if you don't like it. The problem is that it compromises your night-time vision.
