With great difficulty! I bought a generator so can power things to help out. Lots of jacking car up, as you could imagine, Mike! Also bring lots of water every trip. Paint looks ok from 5 foot away as well. Dont get too close, though....!
Regards. Pete

Are you sure you really want wing mirrors even though they are traditional? The are not adjustable from in the car and always seem to be in the way when working over the engine bay. Many prefer mirrors on the doors instead. Just my two cents worth. Dramatic improvement from the before and after photos I must say. Great job.

I like the look of the chrome. Have sorted the engine (i hope!) so mirrors shouldn't interfere. I will see when i get it on the road!

Period wing mirrors are
a waste of space Peter.

I'm a big fan of chrome as well. These Lucas repro mirrors are very much chrome. Can be had with flat or convex lenses.
