i purchased my early 260z with a missing mirror. On closer inspection I found that my mirror was ripped out of the door, 4 times.. I was presented with essentially a 5" long series of holes in my door so prior to painting I welded them shut with an additional piece of sheet metal inside the door as a reinforcement. I used a light coat of body filler to smooth things out over the new metal and the door looks normal after paint. I bought an OEM mirror from courtesy Nissan and now i need to drill holes into my repaired door. I would like to know the exact mounting location to keep things stock. My car is an early 260z and I am unsure if that makes any difference. Thank you in advance
I was thinking of changing out my Side view mirror from the MSA flush mount mirrors that from my experience can only be used when the car isn't moving, which is not ideal. I'm trying to decide between a set of 4" Bullet style mirror or possible a set of Yana Shiki motor cycle Mirrors. I'm leaning towards the Yana Shiki mirrors cause I want to mount them further forward than the stock position so I don't have to turn my head much to look into them. Plus the Yana Shikis have convex mirrors as opposed to flat. I just want a few thoughts to make sure I'm not hopping over that fine line between genius and insanity.

Found these review mirrors on eBay: Here Got them for Christmas, thought they looked like they were made from crappy cheap plastic (probably are, I mean the name on the sticker says Phanton when I'm guessing it was supposed to say Phantom) Lots of flashing made them look sort of bad as well, I thought. I took a razor, cut off the excess flashing, sanded down where I cut. Then I sanded the whole of the exterior, cleaned with acetone (which seemed to react with the plastic once the outside was sanded off) and rattle canned in flat black to match the rest of my nearly finished matte black car that I'm currently finishing the wrapping of (in vinyl).\ I think it looks pretty good now, and here's a couple pictures for reference: (the last picture shows original on left, painted on right, except the paint is not quite fully dry) The main reason why I wanted them was because they look so much more like they are JDM, but a fraction of the cost (I'm seeing JDM go for around $300 online, and that's when I can find a source), and these will be better than the bullet style mirrors which I find too short.
