I like the retro look of the chrome Lucas style door mirrors.  How is the rear visibility out of them compared to the stock Tex or bullet style mirrors?

I have no experience of those mirrors but what glass is in them will make a big difference.  I have Tex mirrors and find they are far better with convex glass instead of flat glass.

I have these stem mirrors on my mini.. the visibility is 'ok'.. better than bullet mirrors as the glass area is bigger and they sit much higher up. I like them

I'd like to see them too. You can't host pictures on here, you have to use an external site like Flickr or imjur.
