So....as I anxiously await for the big ticket items to be completed on my Cruiser, I'm trying to button up the details and small projects that I've planned over the last few years. Initially, I planned on splurging on new mirrors for the old girl, since the original FJ62-style chrome ones (OEM Murakami mirrors), which I painted black some years back, are worn out, wobbly, and in the driver's side case, cracked. However, as the scope of my project expanded, I am devoting whatever funds I have to the mechanical improvements/modification, and it's hard to justify new mirrors. I dreamed of getting OEM Murakami *black ones* from G&S, then figured I'd compromise with some of the *Aussie* type from MAF, but now I'm back to square one. Then, while flipping through my Land Cruiser picture archives, I remembered that I have a pair of fender mounted *"owing-style" mirrors (JDM-spec), also OEM Murakami, that I got a few years back and never used (see attached pictures). Needless to say, mounting them on the fenders are out of the question, I need mirrors that I can actually SEE, but then I had an idea and I wanted to run it by the group. Do you think I could combine the arm and head of the "towing" mirrors with the base of the OEM FJ62 ones? I don't have the FJ62 mirrors handy so I can't tell, but it might work, and with some steel wool and a can of satin black I could have a nice set of OEM (well, sorta) mirrors that actually work. What do you think? Anyone have a crapped out FJ62 mirror that they're not using? All I need is the base, I want to test my theory. Thanks in advance!!
