OK Gang - time to go on the hunt. Anyone know where to find this set of mirrors?







They are on a 98 Ranger on EBay that is modded. I've looked through some of the normal spots, but no luck. Anyone seen them?!?!?!?!

Thanks 96 -




I didn't know about the first link - and must have missed it when I looked through Godfathers...



They all seem to be manual mirrors - which I don't want to go to, so I might have to get creative...

Well you'll have to get really creative too considering the fact that they are not a direct fit for Explorers by any means. This means you'll have to do a lot of fiberglass work to make it mold and appear "stock"...it's been discussed several times over on EF and in fact I originally wanted to do that and started a thread on it, only to be shut down by everyone :roll:



It's not impossible, but at the sametime not a 1,2,3 you're done type deal. But then again what IS that way for Explorers? :roll:




It's a shame too because those look KILLER and I think someday the day will come when I will just have them modded to fit on there. The manual part does suck though :sad:

I knew they were not a direct fit, but for $65.00 - I figured I could play with them some. I've got an extra set of mirrors in the garage for an Explorer I was going to fiberglass (one of these days), but when I saw these, it caught my attention. I had not seen the other threads... :!:



Hell - I've got enough projects. This one will have to wait...

LOL - I sat here for 4 months collecting parts while my house was being built and my X was 2200 miles away. Now, not only do I have the projects I collected here, but all the ones I had before I left. I need to get them done, painted, and installed - before I come up with more...

I see Carbon fiber mirrors all the time, mostly when i'm changing lanes.




Signals in them and puddle lights.



Keep an eye on ebay, but it's gonna cost you like 250

I never ever see the XP8 carbon fiber mirror covers on eBay anymore...ever....



And trust me I keep an eye out for anything Saleen in general or Saleen Explorer / XP8 related on a weekly basis...

I don't ever see the XP8 mirrors anymore either - hell - hardly anything for them. That is why I was looking at Ranger mirrors - they are as close as I can get (I think) and would be the easiest to change.



I just don't want to go back to a manual mirror... :snipe:

They'll show up, they usually do, about once every 2 or 3 months.

I check the saleen stuff, usually at least 2wice a day.
