Can someone post up some measurements of the mirror shells?  Might try my hand in making some.  Thanks!

I will be using the mirror motors from the same mirrors I just haven't mounted them yet. I'll put them in after the mirrors are painted. I have the mirror glass from Schultza that fit Pedro's mirrors perfectly.

What motors are you using for the mirror glass?  Any problems with the wiring passing through the hinge area?

Awesome!  Thank you very much for posting these pictures and the information of where the donor parts came from.  I'm sure this will help out the other members that were looking for a good solution to this.  :notworthy

Nice work! I just recently got a set of these mirrors from Pedro.
They are really nice. He does really great work. Thanks for the tip on the IS300 mirrors ::thumbup.

I used the motors from a Toyota/Lexus Sitezza/IS300. I cut the motor and mount out of the Lexus mirror and grafted them into Pedro's mirrors. they fold back and stop when resistance is met and then do the same extending. I got them of Ebay.

I can provide a video of them moving.

Guys the Japanese import mitsi gto have folding mirrors, I own one, and they mount to the door skin just make a base to suit your door shape,and some of the stealth may do also, try to get the dash loom as it contains the mirror relay box which makes life a lot easier, I am going to use these on my Countach.

No worries, they did say powered mirrors so I assumed they had the motors.  No big deal either way, i only bought the one side and it was only $30.  I may also send it back if the shipping is cheap enough.

Guess I should have said to make sure it says they have power folding option. My 06 sierra's fold in and so does my 07 suburban. So those vehicles have it available for sure. My apologies for not giving enough detail.

Most new SUV have  folding mirrors. Also cars too such as bmw .Acuras etc .shop around and then get aftermarket B/N for far less price.

I bought a silverado mirror for $30 and this is what the guts look like.  It looks like it will work but I'll need to use something else for adjusting the power mirrors as the silverado mirror is huge.  Also, I thought these would have a motor to actually fold the mirrors but they don't, I'm assuming the Escalade mirrors actually have the motors.  I'll probably try an Escalade mirror next if someone can verify that they have folding motors.
