Re: Bus mirrors for an older short bus?

I always called them crossover mirrors myself. If you asked about them 2 months ago I could have helped you as I finally threw mine out almost two months ago since I go tired of them laying around. Yes they were on a international but they may have been adaptable.

Personally I would put them back on anyways. I understand how you could want them for better visibility. What I would do is go to napa and get some new mirrors like the ones on this bus on eBay 140201116475 and mount them in a similar location as they are on it too.

Re: Bus mirrors for an older short bus?

i don't know the proper name for them, but i always refer to them as "bus driver mirrors" and i like to adjust mine to not look so much at the front, but more along the sides in my blind spots. makes changing lanes much easier.

Re: Bus mirrors for an older short bus?

Hmm...I'll check part numbers when I get a chance, but we sell generic crossover mirrors at the parts store. Story to follow at 10....

Re: Bus mirrors for an older short bus?


The mirrors can be bought at any truck stop and truck parts store. The brackets can be fabricated at home from cheap electrical conduit (any hardware store) -- just squeeze or hammer the ends flat.
