can you mount the mirror on the fender or some other position so the door clears the mirror?

Well ok... nice find my friend.... I bet they pricey though... I don’t think I could pull off just doing one side. I still feel like I would need a spring or chain or something to prevent the door from slamming open or closed I think..

You should be able find a less expensive (although less 'cool') mirror bracket from a used bus. Last month we scavenged one to mount the driver's mirror forward like our passenger mirror. Pretty easy fix.
