Default Canopy Bow Mirror

Anyone have a source for those curved rear view mirrors that conform to the curvature of an RV-8 canopy bow?

Thanks!

Default Mirrors for my 8

Saville,

I too am considering mirrors.

This is what I found:

Curved Roll Bar Cockpit Rear View Mirrors

http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ead.php?t=3805

RV-8 Rear View Mirrors

http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ad.php?t=12949

Paul Dye (Ironflight) indicates he got his from the Auto zone.

Mirror Mount
from David Kumhyr <dkumhyr at us.ibm.com>

http://www.vansairforce.net/BuilderMods.htm


I'm going to check that out. Please let me know what you find.

Default Free to a good home...the mirror...

I made my own. Sorry no better pic on my IPad this weekend. This is Hana, our DIB. (Dog In Back)
I have a few extra of the curved ones in my hangar I will share by snail-mail, no charge! Once you see it you can make the round convex one yourself. I will include an extra bar mount, you supply just the round mirror, if you want. Once you see the simple construction you could make four or five to fill the entire roll bar. Just need address.

Default Check With "Nordo" Dan West

Dan is getting ready to race at Reno this year, but might still be producing mirrors…not sure. Here is a slightly dated thread that shows his info: http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...d.php?t=107551

Cheers,
Bob

Default Roll Bar Mirrors

I got out of the mirror game I'm just too busy. However I do have some new old stock ones left. If you pay the shipping and donate to DR for his IFR check I'll Ship them out while they last. They will ship after Reno.

Deal. Please reserve one for me. I'll PM the address.

I'll let you know when the donations to DR are completed.

I've already contributed $100 to DR this year, but I'll do more. Let me know what you want. Just need one.

I will gladly pay shipping and donate to DR's IFR check ride. I'm due to pay my annual dues (even though exempt) and I will contribute again this year extra to DR's kids college fund as well.

I have a PM coming your way with my contact information or you can email me at:

Chkaharyer99@yahoo.com

Thank you
