Mirror Replacements?

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement for a broken driver's side 2002 Freightliner Thomas rear view mirror?

Luckily I can still see on the side I'm meant to see with that mirror...

Are those mirrors specific to the bus makes? I deleted both of mine last fall and you can have one or both for free, if you like. I think I have some pics of them in my build thread, I'll look.

Edit: https://www.skoolie.net/forums/attac...0&d=1570804307. I mangled the bases a bit cutting out the rusted screws.

I'll definitely take them if you're serious I can have them!
I'm not 100% sure if they're specific or compatible or not but they LOOK pretty darn close...

Do you want just the mirrors themselves or also the tube support stuff? Might be a little easier to mail with just the mirrors. PM me your address and I'll see if I can figure out how to mail something without going in the post office.

I have not had to use them ... but I believe that the shipping companies like UPS and Fed-Ex will pick up packages.

I have a flat nose bus, so I'm not sure why it even has them on it. You or anyone else is welcome to them if you pay shipping. I don't have a choice but to go in the post office, we don't have home delivery where I live. I think mine are also heated.

the fisheye mirrors are busboy mirrors.. the mirror heads are removeable from the brackets.. the brackets are manufacturer specific

You can ship usps by printing a prepaid label with PayPal, you need to know the size and weight of the package.

Huh, that's pretty convenient, I didn't know about that. I signed up for a stamps.com account which is the same except that stamps.com sucks miserably at everything it attempts to do.
