This was the rear vision mirror I found for Henrietta. It had altogether too much black paint.

When the tourer top was modified for the buckboard conversion, the top no longer folds. Mounting the mirror to the front bow filler board gets it up out of the way.

This is a much better look.

I now have two others to spare.

This one has a matching brass mounting bracket to one I found 8 years ago. Back then I carved a matching bracket from a lump of bronze so I could have a matching pair!

Yep....big improvement.

I still need that tall original paint radiator shell from your stash. You know it wants to come live in Texas ;)

Don, when you declined to trade your 60s F truck for it, I had it nickel plated for my roadster. The one on the car was nowhere near as nice as this one.

And the plating on the shell looks marvelous.
