Question Where to find in-car convex mirrors?

Hey all, does anyone know where to find in-car convex mirrors, or for those who have done this mod, what materials did you use and how did you rig them up?

Also, if anyone has before and after data I welcome you to share here!

I made my interior side mirrors from those small convex mirrors that you can stick onto your side mirror to eliminate blind spots. Get the larger size used to stick onto those large truck mirrors. Cut some PVC blocks and double stick tape to mount them on the door inside the glass.

Just check to see whether they are legal where you are - if your adding mirrors it's different than if your replacing outbound mirrors, some US states for instance I think say it's illegal to not have a mirror outside at least on the drivers side, and others may require mirrors on both sides during conditions like even the mildest of towing.

Good ideas here. Do you have any photos of your mirrors to share?
