So I have thought of a new fun idea for my cube. I am thinking about getting fender mirrors and hacking off the side view mirrors. What do you guys think?

Hmm, that is a good question. I was looking at my cube and noticing how dirty and short the hood is. THe fender mirror for our cube would have to go as far forward as possible. Actually I think you can p[retty much put them wherever you want to. I know fender mirrors are really popular in Thailand. There are two scions with mirrors at this site. http://japanesenostalgiccar.com/blog/2009/11/04/sema-2009-toyotas-old-school-flavor/

There are some here too

Looks like they're aprox halfway down the fender on each side. Guess it's really more a racing style of mirror -- the driver doesn't have to move their eyes very much to be able to see what's happening behind them. Not sure how much it affects the field of view though -- I'd think it would be reduced. Interesting!

This is my opinion and my opinion alone but that Scion had a few cool points but over all that ride and its mirrors were far from my liking! I do not care for it at all. I have seen this mod done before but it is just not right on that ride. Maybe it could have been done differently to improve the look but the pics were in my opinion horrible.
:eek:
