Re: IVA parts and advice needed

Hi Nick,
For wing mirrors, Car Builder Solutions do a range that are IVA OK. I bought a cheap set that passed but the glass was poor. Have now bought an expensive convex Motorsport set from Demon Tweaks which are very good. I reckon good rear vision is an essential. I also had a set of bullet style race mirrors but they were not good either.
For headrests, I fabricated a rectangular aluminium back plate (bolted to the roll cage at head height) and had it padded and trimmed in leather
My front indicators are located in the lower driving lamp recess and you will need side repeaters visible from the rear three quarter
You will need to source wheel nuts to suit your hubs and wheels
Hope this helps
Cheers
Roger

Thanks Roger,

I have side repeaters fitted and a possible solution for the front indicators. Do you know what mirrors you bought from CBS. Hoping to borrow some from Southern GT but I need a backup plan.

Thanks

Re: IVA parts and advice needed

Hi Nick,
I used a pair of these mirrors mounted on the doors and passed the test easily with the long arms
https://furoreproducts.co.uk/e-marked-mirrors

I also used a pair of motorbike LED indicators mounted in the headlamp bowl. They are small enough not to effect the beam of the headlamp
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2X-6LED-Motorbike-Turn-Signal-Lights-Blinker-Indicator-Yellow-12V-NEW-/151931486834?hash=item235fd28272:g:8hoAAOSwSHZWgbaY

Canít really help on the headrests, as I built them myself into my own seat design
I presume by square wheel nuts you mean the central locking nut to replace the tri-lobe spinner
Regards
Andy

Thanks Andy excellent, probably on your build thread but where did you mount the mirrors.

Correct on the square nuts.

At least I know they should be very impressed with my steering wheel pad / cover

Re: IVA parts and advice needed

They look like a good solution, don't they need to be adjustable from in the car though?

Re: IVA parts and advice needed

You don't fit the windows till after the IVA . You can reach out to adjust the mirrors from inside the car ...

Ah, I thought they were required to be adjustable from the drivers seat while driving, that will make life easier....

Only the drivers wing mirror has to be adjustable from the drivers seat whilst driving

Re: IVA parts and advice needed

And if you do that you can be fined for driving without due care and attention as you are not paying attention to the driving part of the job in hand
