Technically interesting but a lot of effort for tight parking spaces. I won't be doing that with my car.

You probably can do that anyway with some of the cars with rusted door pillars! :lol:

Great idea but seems to be hydraulically operated, so if the car breaks down you get to be stuck inside. With the legendary reliability is that a risk you'd run?
There is a similar, manual, kit for smart roadsters, not as cool as spyder doors but makes getting in and out easier, even that is 1000 plus fitting. Outch....

No they didn’t fit them as standard, but if it helps, these mirrors have found their way onto Renault Sport Spiders, All Venturi’s, Lotus Esprit S2’s, Big Hairy Chest 1990’s TVR’s, Aston Martin Vantage, Jaguar XJ220 and the McLaren F1 to name but a few, probably one or two others but they don’t spring to mind at moment.

I knew that, still doesn't seem right. More useless info, the Mac F1, Lotus Espirit, Lotus Elan M100 and late Ginetta G33 all share the same front indicator.

? Next project.....? Maybe once I have finished what i have got and one comes.up for.restoration in a few years time I think.I.might be very easily temtped. well.that is if the prices have not totally gone 110 really fancy a 310 hill climb special

Did I really just type that.....now.I know I am certifiable lock me in a padded cell and throw away that key :shock: :lol:
