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

Hi Nick,
I used a pair of these mirrors mounted on the doors and passed the test easily with the long arms

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

Can’t 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 ;)

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
