    They won't really bend your door skins, maybe gouge the paint at the most. It would be covered of course. The mounting plate is the problem, the "feet" aren't always bent enough. You can try putting a little more bend in them and/or grinding the mounting surface in the right spots to help them sit more flat on the door.

    I also should say I've never bought mirrors from LMC. But chances are super duper good that they sell the same replacement mirrors that the local parts stores used to sell.

    I bought mine at LMC because years ago they were the only one with a right side wide-angle mirror. Mine are stainless and looking pretty beat up by now, but I installed them in about 2003.

    @JoeR Jr see post #5 for my notes. My doors are original and had no issues of fit except for the lower stainless cover. Had I installed the washers between the barrel nut and the mirror flange, I would have had no issues.

    Thanks for the replies. I ordered stainless mirrors wit the brackets, along with some window channel etc, from LMC. I will post back how it went.
