Those mirrors are tight.

I think I'm going to to fender mounted myself but If i didn't I would definitely get something like that. Where and how much?

Rotary...interesting choice whenever anyone wants to put one of these in a car. I dont know much about them. The few Ive seen at shows I think look cool, buts thats as far as my knowledge goes on that subject.

Personally I would love to see 18rg or 22rte...or even a Beams.

I dont know....I say go for it, you'll probably be the only one like it in the world, thats always cool. cheers
