o you have to make new holes in the door for the screws?

No new holes needed for the black ones either.

No offense, but those big chrome ones are pretty hideous!

I think the word you are looking for is "fugly". No argument from me, they are pretty lousy.  Now that I'm seeing the pics from vangremlin, I'm thinking of switching them out for the black ones.

Just for posterity, the mirror area on the big honkin chrome ones was 5x8.  I looked up the black ones and they are 4-1/4 x 6-1/4 so much smaller.  I've got a set ordered already.

I think you'll still like these.  Still plenty big enough, and they don't flop around like the original Eagle ones once they get worn out.

I think you are right, vangremlin.  The black ones look much better.  Those chrome ones belong on a big pickup truck.

The black ones come as a pair.

I just sourced two from some salvage yards. Ordered one to arrive next week.

Just curious, did you find cable ones or standard? I found a few but for some reason hadn't pulled the trigger on calling them. I stopped at O' Reilly's and bought one of the black universal ones for 16.99 I think. They actually had it in stock. I mounted easy and adjusted well but the mirror has clarity like a kid's toy. it works for sure but I'll be looking for something different.

I found a good used left hand remote mirror by using a website called "Junk Yard Dog" that sends it out all over the country.  I just got it and it looks very good.

Will have to try that one once I have some of my emergency fixes done.
