    Clearview mirrors

    Evening all,

    Is there anyone out there that has the Clearview Mirrors on a a GU and has the indicators on the front/side of mirror wired up to work ?

    If so, is it an easy enough job to do ?

    Cheers

    I have a set of Chevy Silverado mirrors that I adapted to my 2001 GUII. I have the indicators on the front side and also a blinking arrow in the glass that can be seen by anyone overtaking.
    I also have the LED reverse lights working in mine.

    I had to find the exact pins (right side has different pins and different plug) to add to the plugs on the body side. To the best of my knowledge, the GU didn't have indicators as options but it had heated & electric fold-in and those wires are in the doors. I used them for my installation.

    Easy? That depends on how competent you are with wiring and how much patience/resolve you have

    The indicator wire for left side is also hard to find. It comes right around the engine bay from the right hand side. I took it from the loom inside the engine bay where it feeds the side blinker.

    Clearview didn't have mirrors for GU with indicators at the time and their price was outrageous anyway - $795. I bought mine in the US for $173US from Amazon.

    @jff45, what did you need to do to fit them to the door on your GU?

    Been thinking about better mirrors but the price of Clearview's is ridiculous especially what you have found.

    Might make it a bit easier on the pocket buying what you have. Also how are they like to drive with?

    Cheers Macca

    Wonder if they would fit a GQ with electric mirrors , not sure I would need the blinkers but reckon it would go close to fitting .

    The indicator wire for left side is also hard to find. It comes right around the engine bay from the right hand side. I took it from the loom inside the engine bay where it feeds the side blinker.

    I wonder if they could be adapted for a GQ with electric mirrors , not worried about blinkers though .

    Saw the eBay ones, $750 for Clearview is another "Aussie Tax" in full operation?
