That one sounds ok. I can't find ot on ebay, can you give me a link to it. Would be interested in that one plus the glass of course. Is it the metal casing.

Are you searching for wing mirror or door mirror, as there seem to be quite a few on ebay - but list as door rather than wing.

Ebay lets you do some clever search stuff. So you could do for example:

Code: Select all

capri mirror (wing, door)

.... which will give you results for both wing mirrors and door mirrors. Everything you put in brackets separated by commas will be treated as an "or".

Or you could do:

Code: Select all

capri mirror -rear -rearview

... which will give you anything with capri and mirror in the listing, but will exclude rear view mirrors (as long as sellers have spelled stuff right - awful lot of numpties on ebay!)

I always check the completed listings too, as you may get a deal outside of ebay :)

Happy to help!

Bonus tip: using the minus "-" to exclude terms also works in google searches.
