Default Yet another question, mirrors

Sorry to flood the forum, but with this truck having so much cosmetic work I;m doing there is just so much I am trying to find out.

The truck has the tripod mirror mounts as seen here.

Where can I find replacement heads for it? Are those factory installations? Because the spot for a normal side mirror has a smooth cover over it. I've found a few replacement heads online for it but they all mount on the back of the mirror and not into the side of it like the ones on it now. I may go to Autozone and Advance tomorrow to see what they have. I only found like 1 online and it was on jc whitney.

I wonder if the black mirrors off a newer truck would work instead of those huge thigs. Once inside the door panel see if that smooth part comes out, then maybe the newer mirrors may bolt up.

Or check LMC Truck.com...they have quite a bit of exterior parts and may have just what you need.

As you can see there are holes to bolt up a mirror it seems, those little metal retainers hold on the black cover. I had to only pull out that foam insulator to get to it. There are like 4 big holes in each door from those mirrors, its ok though because I think I am getting 2 door shells from a yard since I'm gonna repaint it when done.

Well that looks like you can bolt on some newer mirrors then, or will those new doors come with the mirrors?
