Default Guess what I have in my Big Meat Hook Hands!!!

The Blind Spot Mirror Lens Prototype came a day early!!!





...and yes we know how to adjust our mirrors and have seen the posts
with the diagrams on how to do it (this post is not about that)


I can't wait to slap this on

Regards
Chip

What does this do? Is it specially designed to curve the reflection behind you?

It's a Blind Spot Mirror - but it is one lens - so you don't have to roll around
with this ugly thing stuck on your Corvette

Is there any way for this to have the autodim and heating of our stock mirror?
Either way, I'm interested.

Its an exact replica - so you should be able to do it either way...
The factory lens is stuck on to a backing plate, so no reason that you
could not remove the oem lens and just stick this one in its place

What I can tell you, is that it is so thin, I would not go to all the trouble

Chip

Prior to installation, can you please have someone in the driver seat take a quality photo looking out the mirror and the same exact photo with the new mirror for comparison?

And, if a standard mirror gives (for arguments sake) 110 degree view, what does this mirror project?

Just got the prototype in late today - going to talk to the designer tomorrow

Yes, I will absolutely do before and after pics - was just chatting with someone
on how to do that effectively

I would be interested in that also. I haven't really experienced the blind spot problems that some of the other forum members have been experiencing, but I would be curious to see how much better they are. If they turned out to increase the viewing angles I would also be interested in a set.

Same here

The mirrors on the C7 are placed pretty good (low and wide) which eliminates most blind spots,
but I would like the piece of mind of having more coverage of my surroundings.

Default Hmm?

Our modestly priced 2018 RAV4 LTD has amber blind spot warning lights in both outside mirrors. And I like them a ton. Knowledge is power. And it just might save your life.

Well I have my mirrors correctly adjusted to minimize and almost eliminate the blind spot. Adjusting the mirrors correctly really does work. However, I will be watching this very closely and would love to try one of these out.
